What's different in Primary vs. Secondary student account setup?


For primary student accounts (grades K-5) the PSUs will always need to directly distribute the student usernames (pupil number) and default passwords, or NCEdCloud Badges (QR Codes) usually through teachers. There is no claim account process (or challenge questions) for primary students.

For secondary student accounts (grade 6 and higher) the PSU may optionally choose to have those students claim their own accounts, or the PSU may directly distribute the student usernames (pupil number) and default passwords.  To claim their own account, a secondary student would need their pupil number, grade, birthday in YYYYMMDD format, and PSU (LEA) code.  To complete the account claiming process (or the initial login if account is not claimed), a secondary student will need to answer at least 5 challenge response questions. (See: Student Account Claiming ).
