This article describes how a teacher generates a login backup code for a student who has forgotten their Clever password.
A login backup code allows a student to access their Clever Portal without knowing their password.
To generate a student backup code from your Clever Portal:
On the right side of your Clever Portal, click the Help a Student button:
Select the student you want to help from the drop-down menu:
You see a six-digit backup code that you can pass along securely to your student. This code will expire in 20 minutes. Learn how a student can use this backup code to access Clever below.
Once a student has their login backup code, they can:
Enter their login backup code on the next screen, and click Log in. This logs them into their Clever account.
