Customizing your class settings

In Classcraft, you can easily customize your class settings. Once you've accessed the settings, you can look into:

 

Accessing the settings

Game rules and settings are customizable on a per-class basis. You can access your class settings two ways:

  1. On your teacher homepage, hover your mouse cursor over the circular bubble (option-menu.jpg) next to your class and click “Settings.”
  2. On the game dashboard, click the gear icon (setting.jpg) in the bottom left corner. This will take you to your settings for the class that you're currently playing with.

Tip: Use the "Rules Customizer" option when hovering over the circular bubble to get suggestions for your different class rules, including presets, sentences, and powers.

Managing students

In your "Students" list in class settings, you can add new students, distribute codes, reset all passwords, and edit each student's account and character information with the pencil button.

You'll find columns here for your students' names, usernames, email (optional), student code (if account is not created), character class, and Multi-Class ("Active" if they're playing in more than one class with the same character).

Clicking the pencil button across from each student's name will let you change their username, email, password, character, etc. You can also remove them from your class.

Managing teams

Drag and drop students to move them onto or between teams. The best team has at least one Warrior, one Mage, and one Healer and is balanced academically, with around 5-6 students. Learn more about organizing teams here.

You can customize team names, backgrounds, and crests using the pencil button.

Inviting parents

You can invite parents by sending them email invitations or by printing handouts with the parent codes. Learn more here

Customizing behaviors

You can edit or delete any preset for XP, HP, or GP.

You can also import presets from other classes, either your own or another teacher's. Learn how to import your settings from another class or how to share settings between teachers.

 

Customizing powers

5E-_Dividing_students_into_teams.jpg

You can change the name of any power in the game. If it's a personal or academic power, you can also change what it does, how much AP it costs to use, and whether or not it's a collaborative power (meaning students earn XP when they use the power to help their teammates).

Note: Game-based powers (i.e., powers that are tied to the game mechanics and affect students' HP and/or AP in the game), like Heal or Protect, cannot be edited because they are closely tied to how the game works.

You can also import presets from other classes, either your own or another teacher's. Learn how to import your settings from another class or how to share settings between teachers.

Customizing sentences

Customizing random events

Game Rules

Change game mechanics including:

  • Level Cap - The amount of XP needed to level up
    (Note: Changing the level cap keeps student levels the same but alters how much XP students have to maintain relative progress. The level cap is the same for every level.)
  • HP Regen - The amount of HP regained every day
  • AP Regen - The amount of AP regained every day
  • The amount of HP a student has after they fall in battle
  • The amount of HP a student's teammates lose when they fall in battle
  • The amount of XP gained per AP spent using a collaborative power
  • The percentage grade over which students gain XP and under which they lose HP (in the Grade Converter)
  • The amount of HP lost for each percentage point under the passing grade (in the Grade Converter)
  • The amount of XP gained for each percentage point over the passing grade (in the Grade Converter)
  • The max HP and AP stats for Mages, Warriors, and Healers

  • Sort students by first name
