An Albert license allows teachers to access, see, and assign questions from any subject on Albert. In order to provide students access to Albert's subjects, those subjects need to be open for independent practice or assigned to students in an assignment.

If you're a student wondering what independent practice is, you can learn more in this article.

Opening subjects for independent practice

  1. Select the Library tab and search for the subject of your choice.

  2. Click the Practice Settings dropdown, found below the subject card.

  3. Open the subject for independent practice by clicking the grey button next to the class or classes of your choice.

  4. When the button turns blue, you have opened independent practice for your students in that subject.

[Optional]: Repeat this process to open independent practice for your students in other subjects or classes.

Note: Students will not have access to the questions in the Free Response and Assessment tabs when a subject is open for independent practice. Those must be assigned to them.

Viewing class subjects open for independent practice

  2. Select the class of your choice.
