How to Get Verified as a Teacher in Google Classroom

Anyone can set up an account in ASSISTments, however you can only assign content if you have the “teacher role”. If you do not have the teacher role, when you go to assign, you will receive the following message.

Teachers who are designated as teachers by their G Suite Administrator in their school or district Google Classroom account automatically are verified as teachers when they sign-up. The easiest way to get verified as a teacher is to have your school or district’s G Suite Administrator designate you as a teacher. They can do so by following these instructions.  

If you have an individual Google Classroom account (not through your school), or are unable to get in touch with your G-Suite Administrator, there are two options:

Option 1: Request the teacher role from ASSISTments 

Option 2: Get invited by another ASSISTments Teacher

Option 1:  Request the teacher role from ASSISTments 

1. Go to a specific problem set and click assign to Google Classroom

2. Click “Allow” for the connection to Google Classroom

3. Choose, “Click here to request role”

4. Fill in the necessary fields and click “request”.  For 'How do you plan to use ASSISTments?' an example response would be: "I will use it to support immediate feedback for homework and classwork and so that I can get data to help me plan next steps."

Option 2:  Get invited by another ASSISTments Teacher 

How to invite someone if you have a teacher account with ASSISTments:


  1.  If you would like to grant an ASSISTments teacher role to a fellow teacher, go to the Account Details page by clicking your name in the top right corner when logged into ASSISTments and clicking “Account.”

  1.  Then, click your name in the top right corner of the Account Details page and click “Generate Invite Code.”

  1. Here, you can enter the email addresses of all of the teachers to whom you’d like to give a teacher role (one per text box). When all emails have been listed, the teacher-user clicks the “Generate Code” button. 

  1. Another pop-up will appear showing the teacher the teacher invite code.  You can now copy that code and send to teachers for whom you want to grant a teacher role in ASSISTments. Note: The code will only work for teachers whose emails were included in Step 3.

Steps for Teachers who Receive an Invitation Code

1. Go to and click sign-up

2. Teachers without a teacher role will then click their name in the top right corner, and click “Account”.

3. From this screen, click your name in the top right corner of the Account Details page and select “Enter Invite Code.”

5. Enter code and click Submit Code. 

If you receive a message that this was unsuccessful, your email was not tied to the invite code OR the invite code has expired.
