Note: This document references views and actions that are only available to Echo Administrators

Echo lets you easily create IEPs/PNPs for individual users. This content is visible in a read-only form to the users' teachers, but not available to students. Formerly, this kind of content was managed through File Notes; all File Notes have been translated into IEPs.

Admins create IEPs/PNPs

Access the User tool by selecting from the main navigation menu on the left.  

  1. Open the Users tool.
  2. Select the desired student.

    • Check the box if you want to Ignore time limit on assessments for this user.
    • Check the box if you want to Limit number of options on multiple-choice questions and enter the desired number.
