Giving Students Access to Subjects

Students gain access to subjects by joining classes with those subjects associated. The class must belong to a teacher with an active school license.


  • A licensed teacher creates a class with Algebra 1 associated with it. All students who join that class will have full access to just Algebra 1.
  • If the same teacher wants his/her students to also have access to SAT® or ACT® Math, those subjects need to be added to the class. 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 with those subjects associated. This is to prevent cheating.

Since licenses are granted automatically to students who enroll in a class at a licensed school, the following article might be helpful for creating classes and inviting students:

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.

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 and all students who enroll would automatically have AP Biology access by enrolling in the class.
  • If another approved teacher at that school creates an AP US History class and invites the exact same 30 students, all of those students will now also have full AP US History access by enrolling in the class. 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).
