Archive or unarchive a Class within a Subject

Remove students from a Subject and its Markbook without deleting their work.

Archiving a Class is the best way to clean up a Subject so that you can use it again with new students. When you archive a Class, the students within that Class will be removed from your Markbook and they will no longer have access to the work in that Subject, unless they click on old notifications. All of their work is preserved, and it can be restored at any time by unarchiving the Class. The best time to archive your Class (or Classes) is at the end of the term or year, when you have completed the course and you are getting ready for a fresh cohort. Learn more about the Archive and what it means for you and your students here.

Before you continue: Your students' work is directly linked to the Lessons within your Subject. If you make any edits to the Lessons or delete Lessons after archiving your Class, then you risk altering the way the student work is displayed upon unarchiving. Consider archiving the whole Subject and then duplicating it if you plan to make changes to any of the resources.

On the Students page, select the class to be archived from the left column and then click Archive class from the top of the page. This will move the class to a new Archived section below the class list in the left column. If you archive all Classes in the Subject, then a new, empty Class will be created automatically.
