How can I observe my students progress in Buzz using an Observer Account?

  • Observer Accounts are issued to each school who has students currently enrolled in courses.  An announcement with the login information for this role will appear in the announcement area in Maestro.
  • As an observer, you can view course content and grades for a particular enrollment, but cannot submit assignments or take assessments.  
  • Students on the observer account are updated each week by 5pm (EST) Tuesday for the school.
