NOTE: Student licenses must be purchased to use the external tool.

iCEV System Requirements
Please share iCEV’s system requirements with your technology department, especially the whitelist portion of the system requirements:

www.icevonline.com/systemrequirements

iCEV uses several content delivery networks to deliver content. The school system’s technology department will need to whitelist (allow) several URLs in order for iCEV to function properly.

Considerations:

  • Multiple internet filters and firewalls

  • Different settings for wired and wireless technology devices

    • Software on technology devices that act as an internet filter or firewall

exclamation-circle-solid.svg Important Guidelines

  • It is imperative that you DO NOT copy Google Classrooms. Your students will not have access to iCEV assignments in the copied version.

  • Please avoid using Google Classroom's "Reuse Post" feature. Your students will not have access to copied iCEV assignments.

  • Verify you have access to student emails within your Google Classroom:

    • Login to Google Classroom

    • From a classroom, click the "People" tab

    • Click the three dots beside a student's name and click "Email student"

  • If you are unable to compose an email, then your Google Admin will need to allow student emails so iCEV can properly integrate with Google Classroom.

Verify Emails

FAQ's/Troubleshooting

iCEV & Google Classroom

What do I do if my students receive a “Please contact your teacher” message?

Adjust your student visibility settings so that assignments are set to "Visible to Students."

From your "My Courses" page in iCEV, select the course in which you would like to adjust visibility settings for a lesson. Next, click the green "View" button next to the lesson which is showing the “Contact the Teacher” message to the students.

Visibility Settings

 

 

Scroll down to the "Interactive" section and click to expand.

Note: In the example below, the “Visible to Students” checkbox is unchecked and the “Share With Classroom” icon is missing.

Visibility Settings

 

 

Place a checkmark in the "Visible to Students" column beside all interactive content that you would like for you students to be able to see. After checking "Visible to Students," the "Share with Classroom" icon will appear and students will be able to see the assignment. Refresh your browser to confirm your changes.

Visibility Settings

 

 

What do I do if my students don’t see anything in Google Classroom?

Internet Filter Blocking
Depending on which browser you use and how your filtering software works, you may see either a completely blank page when trying to access a resource from iCEV or the iCEV logo may be present, but no material is visible. Your school’s internet firewall may be blocking one of our system tools. Please refer to the iCEV System Requirements section.

Student Registration Process
Once your school's technology department has reviewed the iCEV System Requirements, proceed to the steps below.

Have students log in to your Google Classroom and select your course.

Sign In

 


Have students click on the shared assignment.

Note: If students have not previously registered for an iCEV account, they will be asked to complete the registration form. The Registration Code, First Name, Last Name, and Email fields will already be filled in. Make sure the students do not change these fields.

Have the students fill out the remaining fields, including Username, Password and Confirm Password, as well as the Forgot Password Question and Answer. The student should use their Google Classroom e-mail address as the username (this should minimize the "Username already exists" error message).

Register

 


If students have previously registered for an iCEV account, they will be asked to submit a course code for your course. This code will be pre-populated in the field. Once the student clicks the green "Submit" button, they will be taken directly to the iCEV resource.

Course Code

 

How do I prevent correct answers from being displayed after my students complete assignments?

Adjust your student visibility settings so "Show Details" is unchecked.

From your "My Courses" page in iCEV, select the course in which you would like to adjust visibility settings for a lesson. Next, click the green "View" button next to the lesson in which you would like to hide answers from students.

Visibility Settings

 


Scroll down to the "Interactive" section and click to expand.

Visibility Settings

 

 

In the "Show Details" column, uncheck the box next to each lesson in which you would like to hide answers from students. Refresh your browser to confirm your changes.

Visibility Settings

 

 

Why are students’ grades visible in Google Classroom but it says “Not turned in?”

While Google’s Gradebook may say that an iCEV assignment has not been turned in; if the grade is visible, the assignment has been submitted by the student. Please disregard this error which is a result of how Google determines if an assignment has been turned in.

Grades

 

My students are receiving a message to “Update their email.” What do I do?

A student will be prompted to update their email if there are corrections to be made on iCEV, so that the emails listed on both their iCEV and Google accounts match exactly.

The below image is what a student will see. The email provided in the Email field is what iCEV currently has for the specific account

Old Email

 

This needs to be updated to the student’s current email address as it appears on their Google Account:

Gmail


Have the student copy their email address from Google and paste it into the "Email" field on iCEV, replacing their old email address. Spelling and casing are very important!

New Email


If successful, the student will be taken to the assignment in iCEV.

An unsuccessful attempt will prompt the student that their email cannot be found in the Google Classroom to which the assignment was shared and be taken back to the iCEV.
