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!
If your school is syncing with Clever, contact us to set up this option.
Create the House as a Student
Go to Setup
Add a New Student
Name Your Student after a House
Giving your "House Student" the first name of "1." will keep them at the top of your House list.
We also encourage placing all "House Students" in a grade your school doesn't use – this way, if you award points to an entire grade, Houses won't earn extra points.
Repeat Steps 3 and 4 to Add All Houses As Students
Go Back to the Main Setup Screen
Add the House "Student" to Your House Roster
Go to Rosters Setup
Edit the House roster
Go to the Add Students screen and Select the Grade in which you placed your "House Students"
Click the House Student button & Add the "Student" to the House roster
Repeat Steps 8-10 for Each of Your Houses
You'll then have a student button for the Houses in their House rosters, but you can always search for the House too, just like you do for students!
