To edit a class rule, click Edit Portfolio Simulation Rules under Admin on the main menu.
If you would like to set-up a new class and need some assistance, please go to Setting Up Your Class Guide.
You can edit almost any parameter in your session, with the following exceptions:
Under the admin menu is where you can:
When you create a team the individual student portfolios are averaged together in the class rankings. You can elect to have one student place all trades, while the other team members login to their accounts to advise them. Otherwise, all the trades placed in each student account will be averaged together in the team portfolio. The team account login exists to allow team members to login and view their combined portfolio, however they cannot place trades from that account.
Lastly, students should use their individual accounts for the Budget Game and to complete any/all assignments. The Budget Game feature will only be available if you selected Personal Finance when setting up your class. For more information about setting up your next class, please Click Here.
Once you’re on the Manage Teams page, you should see two columns: Users Without Teams and Active Teams. Make sure to check the session name (in the orange button) in the top menu is the right one before proceeding.
If you haven’t already created any teams, you can do so by clicking + Add New Team. Please keep in mind that like usernames, the system will not allow duplicate names for teams.
To add a student to a team, select the team name from the Add To Team dropdown menu next to their name. You can view students already in a team by clicking on View Team. If you want to remove a team, you can click DELETE, and the students in that team should reappear in the Users Without Teams column. If they don’t appear right away, you can refresh your page.
The reports menu is where you can access both the premade and custom reports for your class or session. If you have more than one active session, click the orange button in the top menu to choose the right one.
The summary report has some overview information for your session; such as total registrations, total activations (a student account which has placed at least one trade), and the total number of trades placed so far. You can also review which security types and exchanges have been enabled.
The Registration File report will have all of the registration information for each student. If your students are working in pairs, the name of the second user on each account will also be listed here. To give your TA the permission to access reports and view student activity, change the answer to Yes under the Is TA? column.
The rankings report includes portfolio value information for each student. This report updates at midnight each day – if you want to see the intraday rankings, click Portfolio Ranking from the Portfolio Simulation tab on the main menu.
From the Ranking Report, you can:
The User Summary report will contain more granular information for each student’s portfolio. Including:
This report will graph the number of trades and number of orders over a 7-day, 14-day or 30-day period. You will also be able to view more detailed activity per student along with recent orders and their symbols.
Find out the breakdown of investments across the different types of securities over the last 7 days displayed as bar graphs.
You can filter the most commonly traded securities in your class by date, type of order (buy, sell, short, cover) or by user.
The report contains larger Excel files that you can export for all students registered in your session.
If you haven’t been able to find the information you’re looking for, you can generate your own Custom Reports. To create one, click Create Custom Report from the Reports dropdown menu. Your report can be as simple or as robust as you need.
Choose from the following items by clicking on Add and your list should automatically populate in the Included Fields column. Whenever you’re done give your new report a name and click create.
