Student names

Some of my students appear with a number instead of their name on my dashboard. I can see who they are by clicking on the number (which is kind of annoying). Is there a way to change the students' usernames? Thank you!

Hi! This must be their username, which they can change by logging in and going to their settings https://www.duolingo.com/settings/account They have to select a username that has not been taken, that must be why they ended up with numbers, but this can be changed whenever they like.

At the moment there is no way for a teacher to change another account's username. Hope this helps!
