How can parents give permission for their child to have a Khan Academy account?
Students age 13 and up can create their own Khan Academy accounts. If a student is under 13, however, we take extra precautions by preventing them from creating accounts on their own. We want to support you, as parents, in being involved in and aware of your child’s online experience. If your child tries to create a Khan Academy account, you, as a parent, will receive an email asking you to give permission and create an account for your child.
The process is easy. Parents can create accounts for their children under 13 by following these 2 quick steps:
- Creating a parent account for yourself using a Facebook, Google, or other email account. You’ll use your account to see your child’s progress and manage their Khan Academy account.
- Creating an account for your child. You won’t need to provide an email address for your child or even their real name. No personal information about your child is needed. Just make sure to pick a unique username and password that you and your child can both remember!

- I set up an account for my preschooler about a year ago, but didn't ever get her into working on the computer - she was still a little young for the content offered at that time. She is now 3 and I want to start her but I can't remember her password. Is there a place where parents can access that info? Thanks(3 votes)

- I am a fourth grade teacher and I have enrolled my students this year. They can see that I am their teacher, but on their screen they see 3rd grade skills. Is there a way to change this?
- A very interesting and motivating feature of the Programming skills is the Peer Evaluation. My daughter has a child account in KA. However, there is no "Evaluation" button on the project page.
What should we do? She has been working hard to see other people feedback... :-((2 votes)
