Giving Students Access to Subjects

Students gain access to subjects by joining classes that have 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.

  • The teacher could also create a second class with just the SAT® or ACT® Math subjects associated. That way, they can keep usage and performance data for SAT®/ACT® practice separate from their original Algebra 1 class.

Even though an Albert school license gives schools access to all subjects on Albert, students themselves only get access once they join 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 of those students is using or the number of classes they are enrolled in.

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

  • An approved teacher who creates an AP® Biology class and invites 30 students would use 30 of the 500 seats. All enrolled students would have AP® Biology access once the teacher assigns practice.

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