Exit Exam ELA - How To for Students
You will log into the COE system at https://apps.coe.k12.wa.us/coestudent. Your teacher can give you your username - it can be found listed under your name in the "Manage Groups" section. Your username is not case-sensitive. Your default password will be coestudent (all one word, all lowercase). Once you log in for the first time you will be prompted to change your password to something you can remember.
Using the Online System
When you first log in, check to make sure that the information listed after "Account Summary for" is correct. If your name or birthdate are not correct, alert your teacher right away. Your teacher should give COE tech support a call at (360) 464-6708 to get the issue sorted out. When you're ready to begin working, click on "View Submission." If you get a message that says "Access to your collection is currently not available" that means that your teacher needs to open group access.
This is what the student dashboard looks like. To begin working, click on any task with a hyperlink. You will not be able to open up your on-demand assignments until your teacher has opened on-demand access for you.
Read through the prompt, (and download and read the included tasks if necessary) and click the "Respond" button when you are ready to begin typing your answer.
A text box will come up for you to type your response in. You will see the question and prompt on the left side of the page. Your work will auto-save three seconds after you stop typing. When you are finished typing, click the Save button. If you need to go back and edit your response later, you will be able to click on the Edit button.
Mark Task as Complete
If you have completely finished your response to this prompt, click the "Mark Task as Complete" button. If you decide you need to go back in after all, click the "Reset Task to Incomplete" button.
Submitting for Teacher Approval
When you're finished with all your tasks, and each one is marked Complete (green circle icon), and the submission window is open, the "Submit for Teacher Approval" button will become clickable. Click on this task and your work will be sent to your teacher for his or her approval. Your teacher may ask you to revise your non-on-demand tasks, so be sure to ask him or her if any additional work is necessary on your end.
