Free Student eBooks Questions:
Under normal circumstances, the eBook gives students who received the print Student Book access at home. The free access gives you the ability to only view the Student eBook and Teacher's Edition. Therefore, eBooks cannot be printed or downloaded.
The Free student eBook is not interactive, but the students can use it to read and answer the questions on paper or on a Google Doc to turn in to their teacher. Under normal use for existing customers, our online curriculum is designed for each student to have their own login and they can interact with the content using many features available. During the Free shared generic login, those capabilities are not available.
For existing customers of Gallopade that are already setup with the full curriculum and unique Student and Teacher accounts, these features are accessible and will allow teachers to access the content to help students complete the current school year.

Tips for Accessing and Completing Assignments
Viewing and Opening Assignments: "Invalid Date" or "You Have No Assigned Content" Message:
On some devices, such as phones, you might log in and see an image that looks like this. Click the red X next to the words "Invalid date" and this should allow your assignments to appear
Viewing Clickbook on a Small Screen:
On some small screens, like those on smartphones, Clickbook might be a little difficult to see. An easy way to enlarge what you are seeing is to click the three horizontal lines to close the navigation menu on the left.
Then use the navigation on the bottom of the screen as shown
Remember to Save Progress as you work through digital activities. This way, if something stops you while you are working, you can come back and know that you don't have to restart your work from the beginning
Verifying Answers are Submitted in Clickbook:
As students are working through Clickbook content, they can verify that answers have been submitted by clicking on the Correction button
This will open up a report that shows data as students are completing Clickbook. If data is not appearing on the report and students have clicked on Submit the Teacher, contact your teacher.
If students are using assigned digital curriculum like Clickbook or ExperTrack, they can check their scores on the student Statistics page.
