Frequently asked questions : Chessity for teachers and coaches

My student can already play chess. Is there an entry test?

Do you want students who can already play chess to start quickly at the right level in Chessity? Then use an entry test, which you set up in the Exams tool (coach tab):

 

  • Click on ‘Coach’ in the menu bar
  • Click on ‘Exams’
  • Go to the tab ‘Eligible students’
  • Enter the user name of your student and select an exam level.
  • Click on ‘Add’ to make the exam available on the student’s homepage 

Unlock lessons

It is also possible to unlock all lessons for a student. He or she does not have to unlock lessons by succesfully completing previous lessons, but can start with a lesson of his or her choice.

  • Click on ‘Coach’ in the menu bar
  • Click on ‘Manage students’
  • Check the username in question.
  • From the drop-down menu, choose the action ‘Unlock all lessons’ and click ‘Ok’.

 

Please note!

Children often (highly) overestimate their own level and skills. They start with too difficult lessons, which leads to frustration. Taking a step back is difficult for many children. Our advice is to be very cautious about unlocking all lessons! The use of entry tests is the best method to get children working at their own level.
