Joining a PsychMate class
After registering and receiving a password, students must join a class before using the PsychMate Student software. Joining a class requires a Student Activation Code (provided with the purchase of the Student Guide) and a Class Key (provided by an instructor).
To join a class, go to the PsychMate website (http://www.psychmate.com/account) and log in. Click on 'Classes' and select 'Click here to join a new class.'
Incorrect Class Key
The following error occurs on the PsychMate Join Class page if an incorrect Class Key is entered:
The Class Key is a 9-character string of only letters and is provided by a class instructor. If the Class Key specified is invalid, please verify the Class Key provided with the class instructor.
Not Registered for Any Classes Error
The following error occurs if a student is currently not registered for a class:
This is likely the cause of the error for first-time PsychMate users (i.e., have never used PsychMate in any other classes). A class must be joined before the PsychMate Student software can be used. Joining a class requires a Student Activation Code (provided with the purchase of the PsychMate Student Guide) and a Class Key (provided by your instructor). Go to the PsychMate website (http://www.psychmate.com/account) and log in using the provided email address and password. Click on the 'Classes' link to join a class.
When a registered class expires, a new class must be joined to continue using PsychMate. A PsychMate Student Activation Code allows for use of PsychMate for 1 year from the date of activation or in up to 5 classes (whichever occurs first). To join another class during the 1-year activation period, a new Class Key must be obtained from an Instructor. If the 5 classes are exceeded or if the 1-year activation period has expired, a new Student Activation Code must be obtained.
