FAQs

Please browse the Frequently Asked Questions listed below to find answers to some common technical support and implementation issues that users have found:

Why am I unable to add students to my classroom page?

Typically a user is unable to add new student when the maximum number of student licenses has been reached. To purchase additional student licenses call 503-297-2864. A user may also archive an existing student. Please note, if a student is archived, the user will not be able to modify or enter new data and will only be able to view the student's existing data and reports.

How do I decide which routines to select?

Initially it is suggested that you select one or two routines in which your student is focusing on increasing his/her level of independence. Stage 1 routines are foundational for all students, Stage 2 routines are progressively more complex and Stage 3 routines include activities focused on skills needed to transition into post-secondary and vocational environments.

What is the difference between the Average Links Score and the Links Adjusted Score?

The Average Links Score is simply the average of the Links Scores across all steps within a specific cue set. The Links Adjusted Score is adjusted to account for the changing cue types over the course of multiple cue sets. Please read the Links Implementation Guide for more information about the Links Scoring Scale and Links reporting features.

What is the difference between a Links Cue and a Links Prompt?

Links Cues are the antecedents to a student performing a specific routine step. Links Prompts represent the level of assistance a student may need in order to perform the routine step.
