Assessment Plan

Students will make up a password that they can remember and will use it for their school log in.  

Be sure the students have followed the things to remember about creating a password.

  • Never use your name or nickname
  • Never use your address
  • Must be 8+ characters long
  • Make it memorable to you

Check to see that students can remember it by having them write it down on a paper the next day.
