CLASSES: Create a New Class / Add or Remove Students / Add a Date Range / Add a Sign Up Code

How do students create or access their forms and other learning plans?

Students have the ability to create and/or contribute to their learning plan or other forms such as WEAs, OYAP forms, etc.

The process for creating a form or plan is the same for students and teachers. The main difference being, students only see their own information whereas teachers have access to their entire class.

#1: Click on the Forms tab in Hour Republic to create a new form

#2: Select a form(s)
Select one or more forms that you wish to create by clicking the checkbox beside the form (e.g. check off Learning Plan, WEA and OYAP)

#3: Click the Create Forms button in the top right corner

NOTE: If your teacher has already created a learning plan or form for you, then please skip this step (Step #4)

#4: Begin filling out or editing the form

If you don't have a semester or teacher selected at the top of your form, then you can set it by clicking the Edit button next to appropriate field.  


#5: Some forms will have the option to Add Course Details and/or Add Employer Details.

Click the Add button to view and select from a list of all the Ministry of Education courses. Click the Add button again to add multiple courses.

#6: Add the Employer information

There are 2 ways to add an employer. You can either search for an existing employer or add a new employer. Before adding a new employer, please ensure that you have searched for your employer first, in order to avoid duplicates.

Add an Existing Employer
The search bar is smart. If you type in a few letters, it will find a match. Once you have selected an employer, select the Contact and Student Position (i.e. Cashier).
Adding a New Employer
If you are unable to find an employer via a search, click the Add Employer button to create a new employer. You can follow this FAQ to add a new employer.

#7: Fill out the remainder of the form.

#8: Once the form is complete, you can either
– Save, Finish or Export PDF
– Print
– Sign electronically
#9: Email a request(s) for e-signatures

Students can e-sign forms directly from their accounts, or via email.

Students only have access to their own signature field and to send an e-signature to their parents (so that they can sign electronically that way).

All new forms that you or your teacher create for you will appear under Recent Forms (right-side of screen). Click on the plan or form you just created to Edit, Copy, Export or Delete.

A Student is Missing When Creating Forms

If you are having trouble locating a student when creating a form, then please read below for possible reasons.

A) The student is being filtered out

Remember to check your filters! This is one of the most common reasons a student cannot be located when creating forms. It’s possible that students are being filtered out by one or more of the following filters:

The most common culprit is the Semester filter.

  • Students who were previously enrolled in co-op may still be associated with their previous semester.
  • The student may be associated with a different semester in the file that your IT department shares with us.
  • Our semester filter defaults to the current semester (i.e. around Feb 1st, the semester filter switches to Sem 2). There is a time period, close to semester change, where you may want to locate students for an upcoming semester. Students may be associated with the upcoming semester.

You can remove filters by clicking on them and setting them to All or by clicking on the x located inside the drop-down: 

TIP: You can update a student's semester by going to their profile and updating their Semester field:

B) Student data has not been shared with us yet

If the student is still not showing up after the filters have been cleared, this means that they probably are not in our database.

If the student has just joined your co-op/ class, it can take up to 24 hours for their data to become available in our system. It depends on when the data is captured by your IT department and when it is subsequently shared with us.

If 24 hours have passed and the student is not accessible when creating a form, then we recommend reaching out to our customer service team at info[@] Please share the full name of the student and their OEN.
