Enabling Classwize Block Rules Only Mode

About Classwize Block Rules Only Mode

Block Rules Only Mode (BROM) is a Classwize configuration intended for schools using a filtering solution other than School Manager.  BROM stops teachers from creating “Allow” rules in Classwize by hiding the “Allowed” option from the Add new rule dialog. When teachers create new class rules, “Blocked” will be the only available option.

When you enable Block Rules Only, the Bypass Code and Reward features will be unavailable. This is because Bypass Codes and Rewards will not work without Allow rules. 

Enabling Block Rules Only

  1. In School Manager, go to CONFIGURATION > CLASSWIZE.
  2. Scroll down to the Advanced Configuration section and select Create Blocking Rules Only.  
  3. Select SAVE.
