Paychecks include a spot for parents to “sign off” after they’ve reviewed their child’s Paycheck. You can encourage this behavior by awarding points if students return a Paycheck with a parent’s signature.
Add a new behavior named "Signed Paycheck" so teachers can record points as they check for parent signatures.
If you want to track when students don't return a signed Paycheck, make the behavior both positive and negative, and record negative points when students return an unsigned Paycheck.
Use our Select All feature to make recording points for signed paychecks quick and easy! You can then record a negative point for students with an unsigned Paycheck.
You can filter and sort Students Scoreboard to see the total Paychecks students have returned signed, or unsigned. To do so, take the following steps:
Daily bonuses are a great way to facilitate buy-in for your points system, especially if your school is subtracting for negatives. Bonus points ensure that all students are earning points, even if some teachers struggle with regularly recording points, making rewards and incentives more obtainable.
When you set a daily bonus, the amount you choose will be deposited into each student's bank account, every weekday morning.
You can use Students Scoreboards to organize your data and see students that may need additional supports. For example:
There are many ways you can provide support, and some can include ways to earn extra points. For example:
You can create a category on your rubric called "Supports" and add your specific supports as behaviors on the rubric. Consider making the behaviors worth more, which can help build buy-in for your supports.
Sometimes teachers giving too many points can inflate a small group of students' bank accounts, which can throw off the economy of your school store.
Admins can access a Teachers Scoreboard to view the total points each teacher is recording, and add "More Than" logic to the merits column to see teachers that have recorded more than a certain amount of points.
Teachers can also access their own Teacher Dashboard to see their total positive and negative points, and additional info like for which students they're recording the most positive and negative points. For more on Dashboards, view our Introduction to Dashboards article.
