As a CodeHS Pro customer, you have access to all of our wonderful teacher tools. Below is a screenshot of the Toolbox, which you can find at the top of any page on CodeHS. This is the easiest way to navigate between tools and resources. The Toolbox is broken into 5 key areas: Progress, Resources, Code Review, Create, and Support.
Progress: CodeHS provides 5 different ways for teachers to track student progress. This helps you provide individualized, 1-on-1 support to your students. We suggest that you check your student’s progress at least once a week. The most detailed progress report is “Activity” progress.

Another important feature under progress is “Access Controls”. Access Controls allow you as a teacher to determine when your students can access certain lessons, modules, and activities. By default, all activities are available to students. If you want to keep your class together in the curriculum, access controls can help you do this.
What is Access Controls?
Resources: Our curriculum team has created a ton of different resources to help you teach your class with CodeHS. We suggest that teachers review the Lesson Plans a few day before teaching that lesson in your class. The Lesson Plans provide support for teaching the lesson, grading exercises, and resources for offline discussions and activities.

Code Review: This section is where you will receive questions from students and can grade and provide feedback on student assignments. You should visit your Code Review Dashboard daily. To respond to a student’s question, click the question or click on the “Help Mode” button in the right corner. To review and grade assignments that have been submitted to you for review click on “Grade Mode” or “Fast Grade”.

What is Fast Grade
As a teacher on CodeHS you can decide which activities you will grade or review, and which activities you are ok with just passing to the CodeHS auto graders. While our auto graders are designed to ensure students write good code based on functionality and style, we always suggest teachers review some of the student’s submissions and provide feedback. Deciding on which activities are submitted to you can be done through “Queue Settings”.
What are queue settings and how do they work?
Gradebook: The final piece of the code review section is your section gradebook. The gradebook can be customized to meet your grading needs and exported as an Excel or CSV file.

Create: While CodeHS courses are designed to offer students everything they need to start coding, we realize that many teachers want to provide additional quizzes or activities for their students. The create tool provides you with the tools needed to write your own quizzes and activities.
