4.4 How does the levelling work, and what order should I allocate books in?

All the books in Bug Club are finely levelled to help children progress, therefore
books are levelled first by book band colour, and secondly by a letter. The
progression is such that a child should read all the A titles in a book band colour,
before moving on to the B titles and (where applicable) the C titles, for example:

Yellow A > Yellow B > Yellow C

Clusters of books within Bug Club are spread across the levels within a book band,
for example there is one Yuck! Book at Lime A and one at Lime B. If a child is very
motivated to read the next book in a cluster we would advise teachers to use their
professional judgement about whether the child is ready to stretch for the next fine
level.

4.5 How many books should I allocate to each pupil?

You can allocate a maximum 15 books to a pupil at a time, however only 5 of these
eBooks will be visible on the pupil’s home page, the further 10 will be eBooks in
waiting. Once the pupil has read one of the 5 eBooks it will be replaced by one of the
10 books in waiting automatically. The books the child has previously read will move
to their bookshelf for them to ‘look again’ if they wish.



13                                Bug Club FAQ – February 2012
If you want to limit the number of books a pupil reads and prevent them reading a
whole book band in one week, we recommend assigning one ebook at a time. The
child will always have access to the books they have completed in the library, for
further reading practice.

4.6 How do I control the order in which eBooks in waiting are allocated to the
pupil, or de‐allocate a book?

The books will feed through in the order you have allocated them, so books assigned
at an earlier date will feed through before books assigned at a later date. If you wish
to change the order of the books, click on the ‘My Class’ tab, followed by the
‘Reporting’ tab. You will see a list of the pupils in your class, to re‐order their books,
click the number next to their name:




A popup will appear showing you the books allocated to the pupil, at the top are
books which are currently allocated, at the bottom are books in waiting:

                 If you decide you no longer wish for a
                 pupil to read an allocated book, you can
                 de‐allocate the book. Check the box next
                 to the book you wish to de‐allocate,
                 then click the ‘De‐allocate’ button.

4.7 How can I ensure a child completes an eBook of my choosing?

The pupil can choose to read the eBooks allocated to them on their homepage in any
order. If you want to ensure that they read a particular one, you could either just
allocate that one eBook or not allocate anymore until they have completed the
eBook of your choosing.

4.8 Why are some of the eBooks greyed out?

eBooks are greyed out and not available for allocation when you do not own a
license for an eBook‐pack containing the. If you wish to purchase the titles, you can
click the link to be re‐directed to the Pearson website, where you can purchase a
pack containing them.

5. Using eBooks

5.1: What is the difference between the pupil and teacher eBooks?

Teacher eBooks have more functionality that pupil eBooks. In teacher eBooks you
can:

        Annotate the text for in‐school sessions
        Hide the Bug Club quizzes so they do not cause a distraction in lessons
        Edit the text – a limited number of KS1 eBooks have this functionality
         indicated by the    icon the search listings

classroom by visiting:

5.3 Can I save changes I make to the text by annotating or using the edit text
function?

If you edit the text or annotate the text it will remain on the page as you turn
between the pages of the book, but it will not be saved once you close the book.

5.4 Which eBooks have editable text?

A limited number of KS1 books have an edit the text function. There is one fiction
and one non‐fiction title with this feature at each Book Band Level:

6. Reporting and Alerts in Bug Club

6.1 What data can I access on the reporting screen?

To get to the reporting screen, click on the ‘My Class’ tab, click on the ‘Reporting’
tab, and select your class from the dropdown menu. Here you will be able to see the
progress of each child in your class on their last ebook read. To access more detailed
information about a child’s overall reading progress, click on their name:




                                                                                    The child’s rating –

6.2 Why are their only graph icons next to some of the eBooks?

The graph tracks the pupil’s progress over the whole of a Book Band Level, so the
graph icon appears against only one eBook of that Book Band Level.

6.3 How do I print a parent report and what does it show?

To print a parent report, click on the ‘My Class’ tab, followed by the ‘Reporting’ tab
and select your class from the dropdown menu. Click on the pupils’ name you wish
to generate a report for. Once you are on the pupils’ screen, click the ‘Parent Report’
button.




A screen will appear asking you to decide the dates which you would like to report to
run between:




Select your dates using the two calendars, and click ‘Create Report’. A report will be
generated showing the child’s 5 most recently read books and their feedback, the



19                            Bug Club FAQ – February 2012
number of books they have read overall, the number of quizzes correct on the first
attempt and the child’s current reading level.

6.4 What is an alert, and where do I find my alerts?

Bug Club has built in alerts to let you know if a child is running low on ebooks. These
alerts appear on the homepage when you first log in to Bug Club:




Alerts only appear when you first log in to Bug Club. Once you have done a book
search these alerts will disappear until the next time you login.


7. End of the Year in Bug Club

7.1 What is a cohort move and when does it take place?

A cohort move is the process by which pupils are moved up a year group at the end
of a school year. Within Bug Club the administrator for your school can set a date on
which all pupils will automatically be moved up a year (the cohort move date). If a
date is not set by the administrator, pupils will automatically be moved up a year on
the default date, which is the 15th of August.

You will be alerted 6 weeks in advance of the move taking place via an ‘alert’ notice
in the Home tab of Bug Club. This message will be available for all to see even
though it is only the administrator who can set and change the cohort move date.
The alert message will read ‘Year end is approaching. Pupils will be moved up to the
next year on [day] [month] [year].’

The cohort move will happen automatically, however if you are not teaching the
same class next year you will need to manually transfer your class to their new
teacher, so their new teacher has access to all the pupils’ data and can begin
assigning work.

7.2 How and when do I transfer my existing class to their new teacher?




20                            Bug Club FAQ – February 2012
To transfer your class to their new teacher, log in to the platform and go to the ‘My
Class tab’ and then the ‘Class Management tab’. Click on the class which you wish to
share.




The class will open and the pupils in the class will be listed. To transfer the class click
the ‘Share’ button:




A popup will appear with a drop down menu containing the names of all teachers
registered to use the platform at your school. Select the new teacher for your class
from the drop down menu.


                                                                          Select the new class
                                                                          teacher from this drop
                                                                          down menu




You now have two options:




21                             Bug Club FAQ – February 2012
   Share the class: this means both you and the new teacher will be able to see
         the pupils in the class, assign them work and see their history.
        Transfer the class: this means that only the new teacher will be able to see
         the pupils in the class, assign them work and see their history. The pupils will
         disappear from your ‘My Class’ tab.

To transfer the class, tick the box below the drop down menu which reads ‘Transfer
ownership e.g. at the end of a year’. If you do not tick this box you will share the
class rather than transfer it.




You can add a personal message to the new teacher by typing in the ‘Email message’
box. Once you have finished, click the ‘Share’ button and based on your choices the
class will then be either shared or transferred.

The new class teacher will receive an email letting them know you have either
shared or transferred a class to them. They will then be able to log in and see their
new class, and begin assigning work to pupils.

If a teacher has left and has not transferred their class, the administrator will be able
to make the transfer for you using the method detailed above.

7.3 What happens if my classes have mixed years?

If you have mixed classes you will need to delete your class at the end of the year, so
both you and any teacher taking your pupils, can remake classes with the correct
pupils. Wait for the automatic cohort move to take place first. Once the cohort move
has taken place, log in to the platform and click on the My Class tab, followed by the
Class Management tab.

In this tab you will see your classes. To delete a class or classes, check the box or
boxes relating to that class (or those classes) and click the ‘Delete Selected’ button.




22                              Bug Club FAQ – February 2012
A warning popup will appear asking if you are sure you wish to delete the class. If
you still wish to delete the class, click ‘Delete’.




This will disband the class. The pupils will now be available for you and other
teachers to assign to a new class in the usual way.

7.4 What happens to the pupil’s data and their login after a cohort move?

For the Pupil

After the automatic cohort move pupils will appear in their new year group, so a
year 2 pupil in the 2010‐2011 school year will appear as a year 3 pupil for the 2011‐
2012 school year. As the cohort move is automatic all the pupil’s data will move with
them, therefore their login and password will remain the same, and they will still be
able to access their previous work in the online environment.




23                           Bug Club FAQ – February 2012
The online environment will change visually for the pupil, as each year has a
different environment. When the pupil first logs in at the start of the new year they
will be welcomed to the new environment with a message ‘Welcome to Bug Club for
your next school year – there are new rewards to win!’. The points meter will show
the points they earned in the previous year, however their rewards will have
disappeared, as in their new environment there will be new rewards to earn.

                                  Year 6 Reading World

For the Teacher

As the cohort move is automatic, all of the pupils’ data will be retained. Teachers will
still be able to see the work each pupil has completed and the date of completion.

7.5 What if I need to move a pupil up two years, or hold a pupil back a year?




24                            Bug Club FAQ – February 2012
If you need to treat individual pupils differently to the rest of the class you must wait
for the automatic cohort change to take place first. It is essential that you allow the
automatic cohort change to take place first so that pupil data is retained. Once the
cohort move has taken place the pupil will appear in the year above, and you can
manually move them back to the year below, or ahead to the year above.

To manually move a pupil up or down a year go to the ‘My Class’ tab and the ‘Class
Management’ tab, and click on your class name. Once you can see your class, click
on the name of the pupil you wish to move:




A popup with the title ‘Edit Pupil Account’ will appear. Next to ‘Cohort’ there is a
drop down menu, using this drop down menu select the year you wish the pupil to
appear in. Once you have selected this, click ‘Save changes.’ This pupil will now
appear in the year selected.




Pupils cannot be moved in bulk this way, only on an individual basis. If you need to
make a bulk transfer of students, please contact our customer services team and
they will be able to assist you.

Once you have changed the pupil’s year group they can be added to their new class
by their new teacher. To add a pupil to an existing class, log in to the platform and
click on the My Class tab, followed by the Class Management tab. A list of classes you
own will appear. Click on the class you wish to add a pupil to:




25                             Bug Club FAQ – February 2012
Once you have clicked on the class, you will see a list of pupils in that class. To add a
new pupil to the class, click the ‘Edit’ button:




A popup will appear with the title ‘Edit Class’. To add a pupil to the class, start by
selecting their intake year from the drop down menu. Once an intake year is
selected, all the pupils in that year will appear in the ‘Pupils’ box. To add a pupil to
the class select them by ticking the box next to their name, then click the add arrow.
The pupil selected will move to the list on the right hand side of the screen
containing the rest of the class members. Click ‘Save Changes’. The pupil(s) will now
be in their new class ready to assign work to.

7.6 What happens to the profile and data of children in Year 6 when they move
‘up’?

Once the automatic cohort move takes place, pupils who were previously in year 6
will no longer be visible and their data will no longer be accessible.

If you wish pass data for year six pupils to their secondary school or keep it on
record, we recommend that you print a copy of the data for each pupil before the
cohort move.

To print a pupil’s record, click on the ‘My Class’ tab and then the ‘Reporting’ tab. If
you have more than one class you will need to select the class you need from the
drop down menu. Once you have selected the correct class, click on the name of the
pupil you would like to print the record for.




You will then be taken to that pupil’s record. To print a copy of the record, click the
‘Print’ button.




7.7 How do I add my new reception class?

The easiest way to add new pupils to the system is to use the bulk upload process to
upload a ‘CSV’ file of pupil data. A CSV template is available in the platform. To
access the template log in to the platform and click on the ‘School Admin’ tab. Once
you are on the school admin tab, click on the ‘Create Pupils’ button.



27                            Bug Club FAQ – February 2012
A popup will appear with a link labelled ‘Example CSV file’ click this for a template
spreadsheet.




An example CSV file is below – you must fill in firstname, surname and cohort for
each child – username and password are optional, if you wish to re‐use an existing
username and password which the child uses for another system in the school (eg.
Your VLE) fill in these columns. Otherwise, Bug Club will auto‐generate a username
and password:




Once you have filled out your CSV sheet with all your new pupils’ data, log in to the
platform and click on the ‘School Admin’ tab. Once you are on the school admin tab,
click on the ‘Create Pupils’ button. A popup will appear with the option to ‘Browse’
for a CSV file – click this – locate the CSV file you have created, and click ok. Then
click ‘Upload’. The data from the CSV file will be uploaded in bulk, and the new pupils
will appear in the system ready to assign to classes in the usual way.
