Assigned tasks do not display.

Manage Your Demo Student

Your demo student will be named Demo + user last name and assigned to Grade 12 by default. 

Demo students created in a middle school account are randomly assigned to a grade.

Demo students are inactive by default in Naviance, ensuring that the student account is not included in reporting. To make your demo student account active, click Make Active from the Student Profile page of the student folder.

If your demo student account is active, your demo student data is included in reporting and reflected in class rank calculations. If using eDocs, manually update the Class Size in the School Information form to deduct the number of active demo student accounts at your school.

Find Demo Student Folders

  1. To access your demo student folder, navigate to Students and select Student Search.
  2. Select the Grades/Classes if you have changed the student's grade level.

    By default, Demo Students are in grade 12.
  3. From Status, select inactive only, and then click Find Students.
  4. Select your demo student to display its student folder.
