How do I sign up?
Click on the “SIGN UP” button and select “Student”. Follow the prompts to create your account: add your RTS Desk Number (from your teacher), invite a guardian, etc. If you want to add an optional email address to your account, make sure it’s your own email and NOT your guardian’s. They’ll need their email address for their own account to work. Finally, click on “Go To Dashboard” and away you go!
How do I sign in?
Go to rtsutah.com and select the “STUDENT” button. Then, enter your username and password, and click the “SIGN IN” button.
How do I reset my password or find my username?
1 - Tell your teacher or parent/guardian your username and they can reset your password for you. 2 - Ask your teacher or parent/guardian what your username is, they will have it recorded.
Where do I get my desk number from?
Your teacher has print-out instructions with your unique RTS Desk Number. Ask your teacher if you have not received it yet. You can add your classroom desk number at any time. Just click on “Account” in the menu once you’ve signed in.
How do I log time?
On the dashboard, select the date, choose a book (optional), select the number of minutes you have read (in increments of 5 minutes and for a maximum of 60 minutes), and press the “SAVE” button. If you need to add more than 60 minutes, just keep adding time until you get your total number. Way to go! If your book does not show up in the list, you can add a new one under “Library” in the menu.
How do I remove time?
Just like logging time! On the dashboard, select the date, select the “REMOVE MINUTES” button, and pick the amount of time to remove in increments of 5 minutes. Then, press the “SAVE” button.
Why can’t I log time?
There are two options: 1 - You haven’t joined a classroom OR 2 - The classroom you joined is inactive. 1 - You need to join one before you can log any reading time, earn coins, and make progress in the game world. To join a classroom, click on “Account” in the menu, go to “Add a classroom”, and enter your RTS Desk Number in the text field in the “Join a classroom” section. If you don’t have an RTS Desk Number, ask your teacher to print one out for you. 2 - If you have already joined a classroom using your RTS Desk Number, your teacher needs to edit their classroom End Date so you can start logging those minutes!
Are you trying to log time for days longer than 2 weeks ago? You can only log time for the past 14 days. Let's get in the habit of logging every day! That way, you’ll be sure to get the coins you’ve earned, be able to purchase awards, and make progress in the game world.
How do I play the game?
Go to “How to play” in the menu, or click on the “Program Overview” link at the bottom of the page.
How do I level up?
You must spend at least 7 days on a level. If you've reached 100 minutes of reading time, earned enough coins, it has been more than a week since you last leveled up, you are ready to take it to the next level. A red banner will show up at the top of your account when you are ready to level up and you can always view your status in the “Game Progress” section on your dashboard. The best way to make sure you’ll able level up is to read and log your minutes every day!
How do I buy badges?
Select “Game world” in the menu. If a level has badgesavailable for purchase, they can be found at the bottom of the world map by clicking on the “Collectibles” button. You can buy collectibles with coins you have earned by reading. Visit your “Collection” to view them all!
How do I get to my Collection Page?
On the right-hand side of the Game world, you will see a menu with three buttons. Click on the “Collection” button.
How do I add or remove a Parent/Guardian?
Go to “Account” in the menu and click on “Add a Parent/Guardian”. At the bottom of the page insert your parent/guardian’s email address and press the “INVITE” button. If you want to remove a Parent/Guardian, select the “remove” link next to their name. If your Parent/Guardian did not receive an email after you invited them to RTS, you can have another one sent to them. Just click on “Resend invite” next to their name.
What if I change schools or classrooms?
Ask your new teacher for your new RTS Desk Number. Then, go to “Account” in the menu and click on “Join a classroom”. At the bottom of the page, enter your new RTS Desk Number and press the “JOIN” button. You can update your RTS desk number whenever you need to, but you’re only allowed to be in one classroom at a time. Just so you know, the time you log is linked to your classroom. So your reading log will start over at zero any time you switch. However, your coins and badges will move with you whatever classroom you move to.
