How do I add or remove students from the student list?

Learn how to add missing students and remove withdrawn students.

Derivita doesn't receive a roster from your LMS, so there may be times that its list of students doesn't match what the LMS shows. It updates to match over time, but you can learn more and manually make changes with the directions below.

Adding students

Students are added to Derivita's list when they first open a Derivita assignment in the course. So if some students are missing near the start of a course, that's normal; they just haven't opened Derivita yet.

To add a student to the list, have them open any Derivita assignment in the course.

Removing students

Derivita tries to automatically hide the information of students who are no longer in your course. But if you need to do so by hand, you can use the following steps:

  1. Open any Derivita assignment and click the Students tab
    The teacher's view of a Derivita assignment, with an arrow pointing to the "Students" tab in the top right
  2. Click the Remove Students icon
    The student list in Derivita, with an arrow pointing to the "Remove Students" button in the top right
  3. Click Remove next to the student you'd like to hide from the list
    The student list, now in "Remove Students" mode, with an arrow pointing to the "Remove" button next to a student's name
