Groups allow you to keep student performance results separated by class, school, region, or any other grouping that you prefer. You can create different Groups with unique settings. Students need a Group number to play the simulation. Without a Group number, students can create login accounts and access tutorials and guides, but they cannot play.
Follow the on-screen directions to choose your Group settings. And then copy the GROUP NUMBER (7-digit number). You will share the Group number with your students so that they can connect with you. Instructors can also use the Group number to play as a student.

6 Play as a Student

To play as a student and to see what students see, on the Instructor Dashboard, click PLAY AS STUDENT.

7 Set Up Students

For K-12 Instructors

Instructors can create student accounts as they need them. Click the MANAGE STUDENTS button on your Instructor DASHBOARD. Students do not have to disclose any personally identifiable information.
When an instructor creates a student account, a unique USERNAME is generated for the student. The USERNAME is a multidigit number that is automatically generated — the instructor cannot choose the number.
The instructor provides the USERNAME to the student and directs the student to log in to the GoVenture website at
GoVenture will determine when this is a new USERNAME being used for the first time and prompt the student to set a PASSWORD and their name or student ID or pseudonym (if maximum privacy is preferred). No personally identifiable information is required of students. But, it is important that students use a unique identifier that allows the instructor to know who they are for monitoring and grading purposes. Alternatively, the instructor can manually record student names with their assigned USERNAMES.
The student uses their personal USERNAME and PASSWORD to log in to GoVenture.
Instructors can reset student PASSWORDS if needed.

For College Instructors and Other Trainers

Students set up and manage their own accounts.
Students must purchase or be given Subscription Keys to create their accounts.
