How to Use the Random Name Selector with Students in Your Class

Once you get the hang of this software, it couldn't be easier to use!  Let's take a look.

Adding Names to the Name Selector

  1. First thing's first, download the Name Selector to your computer.

  2. Open the downloaded zip.

  3. Copy the files to a new folder on your computer or USB drive.

  4. You will see the actual software application file and a namelist.txt file.

  5. Open the namelist.txt.

  6. Enter the number for how many students are in your class.

  7. Edit the names.

  8. Save.

  9. Open the name selector software file. 

  10. Once opened, the name selector tool sees the namelist.txt file and automatically uses that when you run the software.

  11. And that's it!

Extra Notes

  • Don't change the name for the namelist.txt file.

  • Keep the namelist.txt and the application file together in the same folder.  If they aren't in the same folder, the application file will NOT be able to see the txt file.

  • If you have multiple classes, keep separate folders that contain their own namelist.txt and software application files.

The student selector tool can help choose random students when doing any class activity...including these games!  Check them out and enjoy!
