We take student data privacy seriously at StockTrak – with constant innovations to keep student data secure. However, we work with more and more schools that have their own restrictions on what kinds of personal information can be gathered, even for administrative purposes.
To help make sure that all schools have access to StockTrak, we just released our new “Account Generation” tool. This new feature is an entirely new way to get students registered into your class – instead of using our classic registration link and inviting students to create their own username and password, professors just request however many accounts they need and we generate semi-randomized usernames and passwords.
Professors then distribute these generated accounts to their students, keeping records of which account belongs to which student outside the StockTrak system. This ensures that schools with even the strictest privacy policies can still take full advantage of the StockTrak platform.
Please note that the “Generate Users” feature is only available for schools with a StockTrak site license – if you normally have students pay by credit card/book code, or we invoice your school on a per-account basis, this feature will be unavailable. If you have any questions, please reach out to our sales team for more information!
