Building Administrator Building Settings Overview

As the building administrator in myON software, you can follow the steps below to set the adjustable settings for your buildings only. Note that the district administrator can change these settings for all buildings.

The Building Administrator can set which grades can take book quizzes in the building, write book reviews, take AR quizzes, and access Literacy Center tools. If the school has Star tests, the Building Administrator can also choose which metrics are shown to students and on the myON with Star report. These settings affect your building only.

  1. Log in to myON as the Building Administrator.
  2. Click My School, then Account.
  3. Select the Settings tab.
  4. In the Quizzes and Reading Tools section, check the box next to Book Quizzes, Book Reviews, AR Quiz, or Literacy Center to enable restrictions for each activity; then, use the drop-down lists to choose which grades can do that activity. Enabling the Literacy Center also gives grades access to literacy tools.

    If the school is using Star with myON, in the Star Account Linking section, select Enable if you want students to be asked to log in to their Star accounts to link their Star scores with myON. (Linking is done automatically without student action if you and your students access myON from the Renaissance Home page.) Select Disable if you don't want students to be asked to log in to their Star accounts, and you want them to use myON without their Star scores.

    If the school is using Star with myON, you will also see the Displayed Metrics section of the settings. Check the metrics that you want students to see and that you want to see in the myON with Star report. You may choose up to four. Note: ATOS ZPD is always selected and cannot be unchecked. (CEFR and Cambridge English Language Assessments are used outside the United States.)

    In the Language Settings section, choose the default language for the software in the left column; in the right column, check the languages that you want available to students. Students can select the language they want to use by clicking in the footer, then clicking the language they want to see.

  5. When you finish changing the settings, click Save in the top right corner of the page.
