Managing Student and Teacher Details
The Admin area includes two sections for matiaining accounts registered with your school: Manage student details and Manage teacher details. If you have access to student details, you will be able to use these pages to find details on students or teachers, check their details, add or remove products for individual students, or change passwords.
Manage student details
The Manage student details page allows you find specific student accounts, with options to filter by name, series, group, date of birth, or school year.
For any given student, you can see more information and manage their details from the Details/Edit link to the side of their name.
When viewing individual student details, you can:
- Change their account details;
- Change their password;
- Manage which groups they are in;
- Manage their allocated products.
Did you know?
To protect pupil privacy, Pearson Support will not normally reset student account passwords. If your students do not have memorable information set or do not have an email address associated with their account, you will need to reset their account passwords for them.
Bulk password changes
The Manage student details area can also be used to bulk-change passwords for an entire group of students at once.
This is inherently less secure than setting individual passwords, but often a useful compromise for helping students to log in before having them individual customise their passwords.
- Using the filteres at the top of the page, narrow the list to just those studnts whos passwords you want to change.
- Select some or all of the students in your list.
- The Bulk change password button will now let you set a new password.

The Export selected users
button saves a CSV file which you can open as a spreadsheet, containing all the data on the selected students.
Manage teacher details
The "Manage teacher details" section is similar to the one formanaging students, and is useful for password resets or changing other details. The important difference is that teachers have an Access type.
By default, newly created teachers have a Restricted access type. This means they do not have access to student information, and cannot use the Admin area beyond My account and My products (much like students).
You can give a fellow teacher full access by clicking on the Access type link. When you have made this change, the Access type field will change to "Full access" and the teacher will be able to work with student details and register new accounts for both students and staff for your school.
