Access the Dashboard

After you set up your password protected account you will have access to your dashboard using the URL generated for your team. This is the page you will keep returning to, so it is highly recommended that you bookmark the URL for easy access.

Make Changes and Save

On the dashboard page, you will see four boxes. By clicking on each you will have options to edit and save the changes you make.

Box 1: Default Assessment Completion Dates

These are the dates you will use for completing steps in E-Compete. After entering the dates, be sure to hit 'Save All Changes'.

Box 2:  Adding Student Names and Email Addresses

Automated messages are sent to the email addresses you enter in Box 2.  It is very important that you carefully enter your students' names and email addresses, using email addresses that the students check often. After entering this information, be sure to hit 'Save All Changes.' Once you do this, you will be able to activate the students. You are able to enter the students as soon as they join the team and can activate them when you are ready to start E-Compete. If a student leaves the team, you have the option to delete the student. You also can add any student that enrolls in the course after you start E-Compete.

Box 3: Select the Outcome Categories for your team

For larger teams, it is unlikely you can observe and interact with all the students using all of the outcome categories.  Use this box to select a sub-set of outcome categories.  Be sure to save all changes after doing this.  If you advance to STEP 5 of E-Compete before completing Box 3, all of the outcomes will be used.

Box 4: Optional E-Compete Outcomes

In case there are additional outcomes for your team, you can add up to 3 additional outcomes here. These outcomes will be included on the assessments in STEP 5 and after. Be sure to hit 'Save All Changes' if you add outcomes.
