1. Creating a program

  1. Click on the 'Dashboard' button in the top right-hand side of the page (or the 'Dashboard' button next to your class if you teach multiple classes)
  2. Click on the subheading ‘Programs’ (it’s between 'Assessments' and 'Lessons')
  3. Click the ‘Create program’ button, and choose a title and the week you would like to do the assessment (this date doesn’t matter)
  4. Click ‘Next’ and choose the skills you will be focusing on in your program (Ideally between 1 and 3). 
  5. Click ‘Next’. Now you can choose your lessons! All the KIDDO lessons that are relevant will be displayed, as well as any lessons you have created. Simply add the lessons you want and save your program.

NB: If you want to program lessons you have created yourself, you need to create them first. Instructions for how to create lessons can be found HERE

2. Uploading a program to appear on the dashboard

  1. Click on the 'Dashboard' button in the top right-hand side of the page (or the 'Dashboard' button next to your class if you teach multiple classes)
  2. Click on the subheading ‘Programs’ (it’s between 'Assessments' and 'Lessons')
  3. Scroll down to 'Program schedule' where you will be able to see all the KIDDO programs
  4. Click 'Customise'. You will now be able to delete the KIDDO programs by clicking on the blue cross in the top right-hand corner of each program
  5. Drag and drop the program you created into the dates you would like it to run. It will now appear on your dashboard on the dates you have chosen

3. Changing the assessment date

The assessment date outlined in each ready-made program is simply a suggestion – you can assess whenever you like simply by clicking on the ‘Assess Now’ button which is located on your 'Overview' page within the class Dashboard.

When you create a program, you can input an assessment date of your choosing.

4. Changing the weekly lesson

  • If you simply want to change the lesson to a different lesson within the current 10-week program you are working from, go to the 'Dashboard' for your class and find the box containing the weekly lesson. You can move forward or backward through the program by clicking on the arrows in the bottom right-hand corner.
     
  • If you want to change the entire lesson to one that is not in the current program you are working from, you need to: 
    • Go into your 'Dashboard' and find the subheading ‘Programs’ (it’s between 'Assessments' and 'Lessons').
    • You will see all the programs listed. Scroll down to the Program Schedule and click on the ‘Customise’ button. 
    • You will then be able to delete the current program. If you change your mind or delete a program in error, you click the ‘Revert’ button and it will automatically revert to the original KIDDO program.
    • Go back to the top of the page where the programs are listed and drag the program you would like to use into the Program Schedule on the dates you would like it to be used.

Note: You can create your own lessons by clicking on the subheading ‘Lessons’ and then ‘Create Lesson’. You can then create a program of your created lessons by clicking the ‘Create Program’ button within the subheading ‘Programs’.
