Clever

  • Clever Icon Clever is a Single Sign On (SSO) tool that will allow staff and students to have one location that stores all usernames and passwords.

     

    CLEVER FOR STAFF:

    • To access Clever, it is highly recommended that you use Chrome and that you install the Clever Extension in your browser.  Open Chrome and Google "Clever Extension" then add it to your laptop.
    • Type the name of your school in the box
    • Choose the option to "Log in with Google"
    • Enter your Pembroke Google Credentials
    • The first time you click on any link in your Clever portal, you will be asked to provide your login credentials for that application.  Thereafter, you will be automatically logged in!

    See the instructions below for student use of Clever.

     

Students: Clever on Chromebooks

  • When using Clever on Chromebooks:

    • Students can log into Chromebooks with their own username and password or with your school's generic login.
    • The Clever Icon is available on the Chromebooks at the bottom of the screen, or students can also navigate to Chrome and click the blue Clever Extension icon at the top right of the screen.
    • IMPORTANT: If using your school’s generic student login to log into the device, students must be taught to log out of any application they use on the device and log out of Clever or other students may access their accounts.

Students: Clever on Windows Computers

  • When using Windows Computers

    Students must log into Windows computers with the generic school login (eg. besnav).  A Clever Icon should appear on the desktop.  If there is no Icon, follow the instructions below:

    • Enter their own Google username and password – (NOT the generic one)
    • IMPORTANT: Students must be taught to log out of any application they use on the device and log out of Clever or other students may access their accounts.

Clever on iPads

  • When using iPads grades K-1

    • Clever can be cumbersome on iPads, so you may certainly have students log directly into Lexia and iReady rather than using Clever.  Please note that Lexia now has an underscore in the student usernames (eg. Firstname_lastname), so it will be necessary to teach them how to access the underscore – the student password is lexia.  For iReady, you will need to use the login cards to log in directly to iReady.
    • IMPORTANT: Students must be taught to log out of any application they use on the device and log out of Clever or other students may access their accounts.

     

    When using iPads grades 2 and Up

    • Clever may still be the best option for logging into iReady because of the difficult system-generated usernames.
    • Students can log directly into Lexia. Please note that Lexia now has an underscore in the student usernames (eg. Firstname_lastname), so it will be necessary to teach them how to access the underscore – the student password is lexia.  For iReady, you will need to use the login cards to log in directly.
    • IMPORTANT: Students must be taught to log out of any application they use on the device and log out of Clever or other students may access their accounts.
