Student Login and Forgotten Passwords

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

Accessing e-asTTle

There are separate URLs for teachers and students to access e-asTTle:    Student Login


Teachers log in via the Education Sector Authentication and Authorisation application (ESAA). If you do not have an ESAA login, contact your Organisation Administrator to apply for one.



Usernames and passwords for students

Student change password

The student website is where students must log in to sit onscreen tests and view their reports. Usernames and passwords for students are controlled within e-asTTle.

Click here to see how to find your students’ usernames and passwords.

When logging on for the first time, students will need to enter their usernames and the default password (always ‘password’) then click ‘Sign in’. On the next page students will be asked to create a new password, which they will need to use from then on. Once a student has changed their password, you will no longer be able to see it – it will appear as a series of asterisks when you download logins and passwords. Students will need to remember their new passwords themselves.

Password rules:

Students must set passwords with:

• A minimum of 3 and maximum of 20 characters

• They can use alphanumeric characters and special characters such as !@#$%

The student can not use the default ‘password’ as their password, and can also not use their username.

If these rules aren’t followed the student will be asked to enter a different password.

Forgotten passwords

If your student forgets their password or gets locked out of e-asTTle, you will need to reset their password. Click here to find out how to do this.

Students get locked out of the website if they enter a wrong username/password combination six times. Make sure that students are aware of this! For system security reasons, an “account locked” message will only come up if a student gets the combination correct after their account has been locked. If a student repeatedly receives an “incorrect username/password” message, you should check your student’s details to see if their account has been locked and their password needs resetting.

Expired passwords

For system security reasons, at the end of each year on December 31st, if a student’s password has not been changed from the default it will change to ‘expired’. When this happens the student will not be able to login with ‘password’. If they do attempt to login with ‘password’ they will see the following message: “Your password has expired. Ask your teacher to reset your password”. To find out how to reset their password click here.

Tracking students across multiple schools

 In order to track students across multiple schools they must have been added to e-asTTle with an NSN (National Student number).

If a student is active in more than one school, the student will be directed to select a school during the login process. Once a school deletes the student from e-asTTle the student will no longer have access to this school, except as a filter on the report screen so they can view old reports.


Can my students use their previous passwords or do they need to create a new one if they get locked out?

Students can reuse previous passwords.
