By having students change their name, your grade book will populate with their names instead of a generic account number. You can also have students change their ID number. If both of these are done, it is easier to export grades into your district's grade book.

We suggest making this a "first day" activity for students learning to use Sapling. These steps are given from the point of view of a student. You can play the video below for them, or print a handout document for your students.
