How to Generate Student Usernames and Passwords

Teachers can create new student accounts. When a new student account is created, teachers will be prompted to choose a username and password for the student. This article addresses some common issues with student usernames and passwords.

From your Studies Weekly Online account and within the desired Classroom Card:

  1. Click People.
  2. In the Students bar, click the click the Create Student button to create a unique username and password for your students. In the dialog box that appears, type a First Name, Last Name, Username, and Password.


You may find auto-filled information or a message stating that the username is taken. Click on the tabs below to see how to resolve these issues.

Browser Auto-fills Information

Sometimes the browser will automatically fill the First Name, Last Name, Username, and Password with your saved information. Delete your information to type in the student’s name, username, and password.

The Username is Taken

Studies Weekly has students in all 50 states using the online product. Usernames must be unique so they don’t access another student's account. If the username has already been taken, try adding a number to the name or use the student's school ID number.

The Student Already Has a Username and Password

If students have used Studies Weekly Online before, they can continue to use the same username and password. The student will need to be transferred from the previous class to the new class.

If the student doesn’t remember their previous username and password, ask their previous teacher for the student’s login information.
