Using LanSchool "Classes" to monitor students computers and chromebooks

Many of our teachers (at least 3rd-5th and some primary) have had LanSchool installed on their teacher computers.  LanSchool is an application that allows the teacher to monitor the students on their computer and chromebook devices.  Ms. Tegethoff uses it every day and a few others have used it on occasion.  It's especially handy during state assessments.  Chromebooks have the application installed automatically and computers/laptops have to have the application installed by either Rene or me.  Below is some information about how to set up your class lists so that LanSchool will be able to "find" all of your students' computers/chromebooks.  I've also included a link to a quick tutorial about the basics of LanSchool.

UPDATE (3/31/17)-Travis said that he doubts it could be used to view Chromebooks during testing since they're not actually logged into their accounts.  I may attempt it during testing, but it's unlikely to be able to find their device since there is no login name to search for.
