Giving Students Access to Subjects

Students gain access to subjects by joining classes with work assigned via assignments or independent practice. The class must belong to a teacher with an active school license.


  • A licensed teacher creates a class. The teacher then assigns questions from Algebra 1. All students who join that class will have access to the assigned questions.

  • If the same teacher wants their students also to have access to SAT® or ACT® Math, those subjects will need to be added via an assignment or independent practice. Once added, the students enrolled in that class will gain access to the additional subjects.

Even though an Albert school license gives schools access to all subjects on Albert, students only get access to questions in a subject once a teacher gives them access within a class. This is to prevent cheating.

Impact on License Usage

A school's seat count is calculated based on the unique number of licensed students at the school, regardless of how many subjects each student uses or the number of classes they are enrolled in. Students are not double-counted, meaning a student can be enrolled in multiple subjects and still only count as one student toward the license usage.


If a school has an active license for all subjects and 500 student seats...

  • An approved teacher who creates an AP® Biology class and invites 30 students who don't already have Albert accounts would use 30 of the 500 seats. All enrolled students would have AP® Biology access once the teacher assigns practice.

  • If another teacher at that same school creates an AP® US History class and invites the same 30 students, those students would also have access to any AP® US History questions assigned to them. However, since the same 30 students were enrolled, those students are still using the same 30 seats on Albert, leaving a total of 470 seats remaining on the school license.
