Register as a teaching assistant (TA)

Updated 19 Jul 2022

Teaching assistants register for a course with a student Pearson account and a student access code. They are then promoted to teaching assistants in the MyLab or Mastering course roster.

A teaching assistant is a student who is promoted to teaching assistant by the course owner and has limited ability to manage course content. For example, a teaching assistant cannot create courses, add assignment or tool links, or sync grades. However, TAs might see student grades. There is no way to completely hide grades and protect the privacy of student education records from TAs. For details, see Help for your Pearson product.
