If you are a principal and have misplaced your username or password please email us at email@example.com and please include your name, school, state, and username (if you know it). If you are not a principal, please get your login information from your principal.
Students Page: This page allows you to view all students who are eligible to use NimbleTools during an operational test. Whether or not the student has been registered, all students are listed on this page.
The list includes the names of all students, the student’s grade, assigned tests, and assigned accessibility settings. The list of students can easily be sorted by clicking on the header of the column you want to sort the list by. For example, clicking on the Last Name header will sort this list by the Student’s Last Name.
Column widths are temporarily adjusted by clicking on the line which separates the column headers and dragging it to its new width. However, this can only be done where the column header is located and your new widths will not be saved the next time the application is opened.
If you click on the "Columns" button in the upper left, a pop up window will let you add or subtract information that is displayed in the data grid.
To modify any student assignment information:
- First, find the student on the list.
- Double-click the student in the row, or select the row and click on the tool (wrench) icon in the upper right.
- The student's individual data record will pop up.
Register a Student for a Test: click on the tests you wish the student to be registered to use NimbleTools. Press the "save changes" button when you wish to save your choices.
Student's Data Tab: you can view a particular students information in the Data tab. You can not change this information if the information was supplied from your state's student data file.
If anyone in the school added a student to this list, you can change that student's information. Make the changes you need in the Data Tab, then press the "save changes" button.
Test Tickets Tab: The Test Tickets tab contains the test ticket numbers for a single student only. An individual students' tickets can be printed from this tab. See the instructions below for printing tickets for ALL registered students. Students will need these ticket numbers to take a secure test. Please note, there may be more than 1 ticket number for each student if the assessment has multiple testing sessions.
Printing Test Tickets for All Registered Students
A complete student list of usernames and ticket numbers can be printed for a test or you can printout an individual student ticket.
To print a test ticket list :

- Press the "print tickets" button.
Adding a "New" Student
You can add a student to your school's list by pressing the "add a new student" button on the Students page.
Add all the information for the student you need to add. You can update this information later, if needed. For New Hampshire, you MUST enter the student's state identification number. That number is optional for Vermont and Rhode Island schools.
Adding a Teacher or Proctor
If you are the school principal, you can add other administrators to your school. These administrators can perform all the same student level tasks as principals, but they are not able to add other administrators. Use the" add a new administrator" button to enter their information. Also remember to add the administrators access levels.
The username and passwords will be automatically generated for the teacher/proctor. You can NOT change this name or password. You will need to provide this information to the added administrators. If the username or password is lost or compromised, please call the help line.
