End a Session in a Browser

When the session ends, the Student Portal returns to the class or school page.

The session will wait for the student to complete the current activity before ending.

If you have Class Rotation turned on, the Student Portal will automatically select the next student instead of returning to the class or school page. Learn more about Class Rotation in the Manager for Teachers Guide.

To end a session early, click Back on the browser window.
