ClassHub Pre-deployment Testing
Once your first Clever data import and initial ClassHub setup are complete, you can test ClassHub from different user perspectives. This will ensure you understand how ClassHub works for each user and that everything is configured properly from end-to-end, prior to classroom use.
Manually Enroll Student Device(s)
Prior to deploying ClassHub to all student devices, you will need to manually enroll and install the ClassHub Student Companion app on the devices you plan to test. Instructions for individual device enrollment and app installation can be found in the guides below. Warning: Once the ClassHub Student Companion app is pushed to student devices, ClassHub will be live for those users and will prompt them to sign in. This step should not be completed until after IT testing and teacher training is completed.
Refer to the enrollment guide for the specific OS you're enrolling.
Create a test class
There are two ways to create a test class. Option one is preferred.
Option One (preferred method)
Create a test class and assign yourself as a teacher and student in your SIS. We recommend at least two test students.
Once ClassHub syncs with Clever, the test class will appear in ClassHub and testing can begin.
Launch ClassHub Teacher and sign in to ClassHub with the Clever teacher you assigned in your SIS.
On an enrolled student device, sign in as a student through the ClassHub Student Companion app. We recommend testing this step on at least two separate devices.
Option Two (See IT Admin User Guide)
If you are unable to create a test class in your SIS, you can assign your Clever District or School Admin users as teachers and students in ClassHub. This can be done through the IT admin portal.
Go to https://app.classhub.com/settings and log in with your Clever District Admin account
Select “Classes” in the sidebar
Select “Add Class”
Enter a class name for the test class and select “Create”
Click the plus symbol next to teachers and students to add test admin users
Search for the admin user in the search box by name or email address and click “Add”
Open ClassHub Teacher and log in as the teacher added to the test class
On an enrolled student device, sign in as a student through the ClassHub Student Companion app. We recommend testing on at least two separate devices.
Note: If the Admin user is a Clever user, they should log in to ClassHub through Clever. If they are not, they should log in to ClassHub with a ClassHub account.
Testing ClassHub (see ClassHub Teacher Guide)
Prior to deployment, you should test ClassHub from each type of device your teachers and students will be using. We recommend you test the following:

In the Classroom Manager, check that the test-student desk is online.The status indicator next to the student will turn from red to green indicating that student is present in class.
Verify on the student device that it appears in the correct class.Open the ClassHub Companion app and confirm the correct student is listed in the correct class with the correct teacher.
Test Screen Peek.Screen peek is automatically turned on once class is started. The student screen should appear above the student’s name in the Class Manager on the teacher device. You can verify screen peek is on by checking that the screen peek icon in the top left corner of the screen is green.

If successful, a “Prompt to Approve” dialog box will appear on the teacher device. Approve the mirroring request and the student screen will be displayed on the teacher device.
