Xello provides a recommended grade for each lesson based on the topic area and the complexity of the content.

Administrators at your district can modify the recommended grades, or shift the order of priority for how the lessons are shown to students based on the district's goals and objectives. Individual lessons can also be deactivated if the content is not a priority for your district.

noteNote: Only those with administrator access can create or make these changes. To learn more about educator access and permissions, read the article on Educator Permissions.
