Indigo Assessment

…and I am a teacher/school staff member where there is an Indigo program

Links to take the Indigo Assessment are distributed at the beginning of the program to the primary Indigo contact within a school or organization. Get in touch with this contact to get the staff link for the assessment.

Typically, there is a link for staff and multiple links for students based on grade. Do not use the student link as a teacher/staff member, since your results will be visible in the Indigo Dashboard and it may impact data results about the student group.

Indigo Report

Email support@indigoproject.org and ask for your survey to be resent. Please include your organization/school name and the name you used to take the assessment in the email.

For most assessment links, you will see an exit page after completing the assessment that will allow you to download your Indigo report. A copy of your report will also be emailed to you. Common reasons that report emails do not get received are incorrect email addresses and the email getting sorted into spam.

You can download a student’s report for them if you have access to the Indigo Dashboard. Go to the Find Someone tile, search for their name, and click once on their name to expand the options. Then click Download Report. This will open a PDF that you can send to the student. Note that it may take up to 24 hours after a student completes the assessment for their results to be added to the dashboard.

If you do not see the student in the Indigo Dashboard, or if you do not have access to the Indigo Dashboard, you or your student should reach out to support@indigoproject.org giving their name, organization/school, and requesting that the report be resent.

You can see your students’ results individually or as a group in the Indigo Dashboard.

If you do not have access to the dashboard, get in touch with the Indigo contact at your school and ask them to add you to the Indigo Dashboard. Indigo asks that schools manage their own users for security purposes. If your organization does not have a dashboard, contact support@indigoproject.org.

All individual student reports are added to the Indigo Dashboard. You can see their results or download their full Indigo Reports from the Indigo Dashboard. Note that it may take up to 24 hours after a student completes the assessment for their results to be added to the dashboard.

If you would like a file of all your students’ reports to print, or a file of everyone’s summary pages, contact support@indigoproject.org and request a printing file. Please specify your organization, whether you want full reports or just summary pages, and which group you need this for. In most cases, requests will be completed within 72 hours.

Alternatively, if you want to be sent a copy of every student’s report as they take the assessment, contact support with your request and the email to which you would like the reports sent.

To request a file of all your students’ reports, or a file of everyone’s summary pages, contact support@indigoproject.org and ask for a printing file. Please specify your organization, whether you want full reports or just summary pages, and which group you need this for.

If you do not see the report after 24 hours, contact support@indigoproject.org giving their name, organization/school, and an explanation of the issue.

and they have logged in before…

…using GoogleID

Make sure students click the “Google” button below where it says “LOG IN USING YOUR ACCOUNT ON:” when they are trying to log in. If asked, make sure they are selecting the correct GoogleID. If they are still having trouble, they should contact support@indigoproject.org with their name, organization, and a description of the issue.

…not using GoogleID

Students should contact support@indigoproject.org with their name, organization, and a description of the issue.

The most likely cause of this issue is that the student entered the wrong cohort code when they registered. Students can resolve this issue in their account. Once they log in, they should go to the top left of the screen, open the dropdown next to their name, and click on “Profile.”

Under “User details,” click on “Edit profile.” Scroll all the way to the bottom, edit/correct the cohort code and click on “Update profile.”

When the student returns to the main dashboard they should now see the course.

Once you are logged in, you will need to open your student course. You can do this by clicking the course name in the dashboard, or by opening the Navigation side bar on the left side of the screen by clicking on the green tab with three lines.

Once the course is open, click on the arrow next to Course administration in the Administration side bar. Then click the arrow next to Reports and select Activity completion.

Once you are on the Activity Completion page, you will see your list of students and each of the activities in the course. If they have completed the activity, there will be a check in the box.

If you have more than one class, you can use the dropdown on top of the student list to select which class you want to see.
