How do I reset a student’s password as a teacher?

Find your school's Canvas URL

To find your school or institution's Canvas URL, begin typing the name of your school/institution. Results will appear after you type at least 3 characters. For best results be as specific as possible. If you can't find your school, try using any part of your school's name or searching for your school district or state. You may also need to search for the school using the acronym or full name, for example "USU" and "Utah State University".

How do I reset a student’s password as a teacher?

If a student forgets their Mastery Connect password, they must ask their teacher to reset it. You can only reset a student password as a teacher if your school or district Student Information System (SIS) is integrated with Mastery Connect.

Note: You can only change a student's password if the student has activated their account. If a student has not activated their account, you can send them account activation information.
