How do I stop moderating a student?

My students are under 13

Any student under 13 is required by law to have a valid adult moderator. It is not possible for a moderator to break the link with a student without first ensuring they have an alternative moderator, either a parent, teacher, or guardian who can carry on moderation activities once you stop moderating the student.

If a student is already connected to additional moderators, those additional moderators will appear in the Other Moderators column and a Stop Moderation link will appear on their record on the Moderate Kids Dashboard.

(in the image below you can see one student with an alternative moderator)


Description of rows in the image above:

  1. Breckin-Student: is an under 13 student connected to an appropriate second moderator.
  2. is an over 13 student who already has a valid email address connected to their account.
  3. Kate-Student: is an under 13 student who does not have a valid second moderator.

Note: The break moderation link will only appear when a student meets the requirements to stop moderating. Students can add a second moderator via a teacher’s Invitation Code by following the instructions in the following article:


My students are 13 or older

If a student is 13 years of age or older and has a valid email (an email address that can both send and receive email) connected to their account the break moderation link will be available to for teachers to disconnect from the student.

If a student was being moderated and has turned 13, they can go to and complete the instructions in the following article to connect their own email address to their account.


Last Resort

Delete the student account.
If a student is no longer in your class and/or is unable to be connected to a valid moderator the student account can be permanently deleted. This is a permanent delete and removes the student account and all their designs from Tinkercad.


By editing the student profile a moderator can suspend or permanently delete a student account to remove the connection with their account.
