My BrainPOP offers students and teachers the tools to record learning accomplishments from game play, activities, quizzes, and more. We encourage you to review this FAQ for information on how My BrainPOP works. We've also created a series of detailed screencasts to get you started with this new feature.

My BrainPOP: The Basics

My BrainPOP Overview

My BrainPOP lets students and teachers keep track of learning. Teachers invite their students to join "classes" they've set up on My BrainPOP. From there, they can create custom quizzes with the Mixer, correct quizzes, comment on activities, and more. Students can see a history of the movies they’ve watched and activities they've tackled. Additionally, a selection of GameUp titles offers a "snapshot" tool so players can capture and reflect on key points. Currently, those games include Guts and Bolts; Chronopticon; Crazy Plant Shop; You Make Me Sick; Prisoner of Echo; Reach for the Sun; and Cell Command.

To use My BrainPOP, students will need to create individual usernames and passwords. They'll log in using these usernames and passwords instead of their school's or district's.

Why do I see a BETA designation after some references to My BrainPOP?

The "BETA" designation you see after some references to My BrainPOP indicates that the resource is not yet in its final form. While the feature is live and accessible to qualified subscribers, we're still refining and improving upon it.

Who has access to My BrainPOP?

My BrainPOP is available to BrainPOP Educators with 24/7 district- or school-wide subscriptions, including virtual school subscriptions. District-wide subscribers should contact us at 212.574.6000 to get started. School-wide subscribers can begin using My BrainPOP right away; teachers will just need to ensure that their BrainPOP Educators accounts and their school's BrainPOP subscriptions are linked.

Please note that right now, My BrainPOP is not available on BrainPOP Jr., BrainPOP Español, or BrainPOP ESL. We'll continue to hone it and add new features; thanks for your continued support as we grow!

1. Log into BrainPOP Educators.* (Remember, your Educators username is different than the subscription username you use to log into BrainPOP.)
2. Click "Link Subscription" from the user drop down menu on the upper right-hand corner.
3. You'll be prompted to enter your BrainPOP subscription username and password, and the Educator Code from the account administrator to verify your account.
* If you do not have an Educators account yet, go the BrainPOP Educators homepage and click the Join BrainPOP Educators button. It’s near the top right of the page.

Is My BrainPOP available on BrainPOP Jr., BrainPOP Español, and/or BrainPOP ESL?

Right now, My BrainPOP is not available on BrainPOP Jr., BrainPOP Español, or BrainPOP ESL. We'll continue to hone it though, and add new features down the road. Thanks for sticking with us as we grow!

Setting Up Classes

What is a My BrainPOP class and how do I set one up?

My BrainPOP "classes" are essentially virtual classes that teachers set up to manage different groups of students. They can correspond to actual classes, but they don't have to. For example, you might set up a My BrainPOP class for all your Period 3 students; for a pull-out group; for a certain subject area; or even for an after-school club.

To set up a class, log in to BrainPOP using your BrainPOP Educators account and click on “My BrainPOP.” Then click on “My Classes.” You’ll be prompted to create a class. Name the class and assign it a special code. Your students will use this special code to join the class.

How do I invite students to join my class?

After you set up your class, you’ll see instructions that explain what your students need to do to join that class. You can access these instructions anytime by selecting a class tab and clicking on “Class Management.” We’ve also provided a handy print-out on which you can write your class code and then share with students. You may also want to write the class code on the board, post it on your LMS, or send it out via email.

Can I have more than one class?

Yes! You can create as many classes as you want. They’ll show up in different tabs. In fact, your My BrainPOP classes don't have to correspond to your actual classes. You can set up separate tabs for pull-out groups, different subject areas, or even after-school clubs.

Tracking Students’ Progress on My BrainPOP

What is the Timeline View?

The Timeline View shows you all the work students have submitted to you, with the most recent activity at the top. You can filter the information by date range, topic, or student.

What is the Spreadsheet View?

The Spreadsheet View shows you a spreadsheet containing the work students have submitted to you. As with the Timeline View, you can filter the information by a date range, topic, or student. You can also “hide” columns from your view. (Your hidden columns will reappear when you refresh the page.)

You can export that spreadsheet as a CSV for use in the gradebook program of your choice. We recommend filtering the data before exporting it.

What is the “All Scores” button on the Spreadsheet View?

By default, the Spreadsheet View shows the initial score or activity a student submitted. For example, if a student takes and submits a quiz twice, you'll see only the first score. To see both scores, click the "All Scores" button. You may find this option particularly helpful when assigning the same quiz pre- and post-test.

How do I score a quiz that was created with the Mixer?

Students can submit their answers to a mixed quiz; your account will reflect that they have done so. Simply click on the red pencil icon to score it. You can assign a point value to open-response questions, and you can comment on students’ answers. Multiple choice questions are scored automatically.

How do I change or reset a student’s personal username or password?

Select the appropriate class tab, then click on the “Class Management” button. Clicking on the "Edit" icon next to the student’s name will give you the option of changing the username and password. You'll have to let the student that you've made the change; there is no automatic notification system.

How do I remove a student from a class?

Select the appropriate class tab, then click on the “Class Management” button. Clicking on the "Edit" icon next to the student’s name will give you the option of removing him or her from that class. You'll be able to indicate whether the student has left the school, or just your class.

How do I delete a class?

Click on the "Class" tab, then click on “Class Management.” You'll have the option of deleting a class. Students who are in that class will no longer be able to submit their work to you, but will still be able to access the work they've done in the past. Be careful: class deletion is permanent!

What does it mean to archive a class?

When you archive a class, the class becomes inactive. Students can no longer submit their work to you, but they'll still be able to access the work they've done in the past. Archived classes will be deleted automatically after two years. You can archive a class by clicking on a class tab and then on “Class Management." To view archived classes, use the dropdown menu.

Student View

What does My BrainPOP track for students?

My BrainPOP tracks students’ movie watching history and their scores on quizzes, including those created with the Mixer. My BrainPOP also tracks their work on Activity pages. On select GameUp titles, students can take snapshots of their play and then write a reflection on what they've done or answer a prompt. These snapshots are also tracked by My BrainPOP.

How do students join a class?

When teachers set up a new "class," they create a unique code for it, then share that code with their students. Students then go to BrainPOP.com and enter the code in the “Enter Code” field at the top of the screen. They'll be prompted to create individual usernames and passwords - "personal accounts" - or to log in with their existing personal accounts.

Be sure to remind your students that they should start logging in with their new usernames and passwords - their personal accounts - instead of their school's account.

Can students join multiple classes?

Yes! They can enter different class codes to join different classes. They only need to create one personal account in order to do this.

How do students submit work to a teacher?

At the end of a quiz, students will be prompted to submit scores to the teacher. If the student is part of more than one class, he or she can choose which teacher receives the responses. Students can also save and submit Activity pages, or send snapshots of and reflections on game play through GameUp.

Can a student submit the same quiz or activity to more than one teacher?

No. While a student can be part of multiple classes, specific work can only be submitted to one teacher.

How do students receive scores and comments from a teacher?

After a teacher scores or comments on a student's work, he or she can send it back to the student. When the student logs in to My BrainPOP, the feed will include an alert that he or she can click on.

Can a student pause while working on an Activity page and then come back to it later?

Not at this time. A student can save work done on an Activity page and then come back to it later, but he or she won't be able to edit the work and save it again.
