Restricting Student Access to Renaissance Place by IP Address

By following the steps below, you can restrict students' access to Renaissance Place software to the computers you identify. You can use these restrictions to make sure that students can only log into Renaissance Place software from computers in your school or district. This can prevent students from doing practice, taking quizzes, or taking assessments from home. These restrictions apply to students only, not parents, teachers, staff members, or administrators.

These restrictions do not affect separate client programs that you download and install from the Renaissance Place software.

Who can do this with default capabilities?

District Administrators

  1. On the Home page, select Product Administration.
  2. Select Set Security Options for Students and Parents.
  3. In the Restrict Student Workstations section of the Access Security options, you can enter the IP addresses or a range of IP addresses for the computers that students may use to access this software. You can enter a list of individual IP addresses, a range, or a subnet range (IP addresses that begin with the same numbers). See the examples on the left side of the page for details. Be sure to include all computers at the school or district that students may use to access the software. For assistance, contact your technology/computer coordinator or network administrator.
  4. Be sure to use the external, not internal, IP addresses when you set the restrictions. For more help with this, see the Knowledge Base article at http://support.renaissance.com/techkb/techkb/6873121e.asp.

  5. When you have finished entering the IP addresses, select Done to save your changes.
