Downloading the myIGDIs iPad App

If you ordered access to the myIGDIs iPad App, navigate to the Apple App Store and search for "myIGDIs". Download the app. Classroom Administrators will be able to log in using the same credentials used to access their Data System account.

Administering the assessment from the myIGDIs iPad App

To administer the assessment using the app, two iPads must be used. Both of the iPads must have the app installed and open, in addition to having Bluetooth enabled (this can be done in the iPad's settings).

When you open myIGDIs, you will want to Student mode for one iPad and Teacher Mode for the other.

On the iPad in Teacher mode, sign in and select the school if necessary. Then, find the student and click the circle for that student and assessment to begin the assessment.

At that point, it will search for the other iPad in Student mode and ask to sync to that iPad. Note: Until the teacher starts the assessment for the student, the student's app will only display a white screen.

Syncing data from the myIGDIs iPad App to the Data System

In order to review results in the Data System from an assessment taken through the myIGDIs iPad App, you'll have to sync the data. To do so, make sure you have Bluetooth enabled and a connection to the internet on the teacher's iPad. From the iPad in Teacher Mode, click Menu in the upper left corner.

In the left-hand column, select Tap here to synchronize.

A message will pop up saying "Synchronization is in process." When the sync is complete and the data is showing in the Data System, a message will alert you that the synchronization was successful.

iPad Troubleshooting

To optimize performance, we recommend using the latest versions of iOS and our app on both of your iPads. To find the latest version of iOS, open up Settings, go to General, then Software Update. If you don't have the latest version, click Download and Install. To find the latest version of our app, open up the App Store, click Search, then type "myIGDIs". If you don't have the latest version, install it. Make sure you go through this process on both iPads. This app requires iOS version 8.0 or later.
