Note: Archiving (removing) a student from your class will not delete the student's account. Archiving a student will just make it so they can no longer see or access your class' formatives. They still have a Formative account, and you can restore their enrollment in your class at any time.

Archive a student

From your Classes page, click on the class name to navigate to the Student Management page, and then:

  1. Check mark the student(s) you wish to remove from the class

  2. Select "Archive" from the menu at the bottom of the screen

  3. Confirm that you would like to archive (remove) the student from the class

View archived students

Archived students will not be deleted from the class roster, to preserve their data. Once archived, they will be moved into your "Archived Students" list which you can easily access from the Student Management page:

  1. Click on "More Options"

  2. Choose "Show Archived Students".

Your archived students will be listed along with a timestamp indicating when they were archived.

To navigate back to your active students:

  1. Click on "More Options

  2. Choose "Hide Archived Students"

Restore an archived student

If you need to restore an archived student into the class they were previously members of:

  1. Click on "More Options" and choose "Show archived Students"

  2. Locate the student(s) on the archived students list and check mark them

  3. From the menu at the bottom of the screen choose "Restore"

The student will then be re-added to your class, and all their data will repopulate in your Tracker.

You can then click on "More Options" and choose "Hide archived students" to return to your active students list.

If you've restored all archived students on the list and there are no more students listed on it, you can also click the "View All Students" button to return to your active students list.

Removing an invited student

If you've invited a student by mistake, or accidentally entered an incorrect email address and the student has not accepted the invitation yet, you can cancel the invitation:

  1. Click on "Enrolled Students" and choose "Invited Students" instead

  2. Check mark the box next to the invited student's name

  3. Click on "Remove invite" from the menu at the bottom of the page

  4. Confirm that you want to remove the invitation for the student
