In a District Admin Account, subject tabs can be created that will appear as purple tabs on the Home Screen of every teacher in your district. The District Admin adds specific tests to the tabs so every teacher is administering the same tests to all students in the district. District Managed subject tabs can be added from the Home Screen or Test Explorer. Below the video are step-by-step instructions.
