Create a PLG using the Web Console

Here's a video that shows an example of how to create a set of individualised outcomes for 1 Learner (EHCPs, IEPs):

On a computer, use the Web Console. The Web Console URL and the domain is unique to your school.


Here are the steps to Access the PLG Manager Screen:

NB: If you have not yet set up the Web Console for your school please see this set of articles in the EfL Resource Centre (https://resources.evidenceforlearning.net/category/199-setup-your-web-evidence-console)

2
Enter your schools "domain" in the 1st box and in the 2nd and 3rd box enter your unique Username and Password (the same as you use to enter into the assessment area of the App). 

NB: For quicker access, use your school's customised URL: https://web.evidenceforlearning.net/efl/login/"yourschoolsdomain"

To find out your schools domain please see this article: How do I find out my school's domain?
