Want to Give Points to an Entire House?

You can award points to a House without the points going to a particular student, by creating "students" with your House names and placing these "students" in the appropriate House roster.

The Houses will show up as a Roster in your Points app, and points can be awarded to the "House Student" on behalf of the House itself.

You can also create custom behaviors on your rubric specifically for awarding points to Houses, for example, a point for a House vs. House "Tug-of-War," and make these points worth 100, 200, 300 points!

You first need to create the House as a student, then add that "student" to the appropriate House roster. Learn how below!
