System 44 Help!

I am a high school ELA - ESL teacher and this is my first year teaching ESL. I have 23 years of experience teaching middle school English and, for years, I had ESL students mainstreamed into my classroom, but never an entire class of ESL students. My district has instructed me to use System 44 with my students who are struggling but I have received no formal training. I've been reading up on System 44 as much as possible but I do have some questions. 1. Where are the quick writes and graphic organizers located? 2. Are the QW/GO different for each book? 3. Once the students are logged into System 44, does the computer just automatically know where to take them? Is there some info I need to be adding? All of my students have taken the SRI and most of them have BR for their Lexile score. 4. I'm seeing tickets for quizzes mentioned, is this something I can print or do I need to make these? 5. Do the quizzes need to be printed? 6. Where are the videos for Anchor Understanding located? I'm sure I will have more questions as I go along but for now, any help would be appreciated. Thank you!
