Follow these steps to access your students’ QR or Amplify login credentials:

How to distribute login materials

Our login cards help make it easier for students to log in to Boost Reading+. When not in use, store the login cards for safekeeping.

Note: We recommend laminating or printing login cards on cardstock to prevent damage.

Student login

We offer a variety of login methods to support the unique needs of students and classes. Use the following recommendations to choose the best login method for your class:

  • Integrated solutions: Clever, ClassLink, Schoology, District SSO, etc.

    • If your school uses a supported, third-party integration, this is the easiest way to streamline the login experience for your students.

    • Best for: Efficient student login on devices with cameras

    • Not recommended if: Your students’ devices do not have cameras

  • Amplify username and password login (for mCLASS users only)

    • Best for: Students who use mCLASS whose devices do not have cameras

    • Not recommended for: Younger students who do not yet have typing skills; students who also do not use mCLASS
