Only Admin users can edit the Behavior Rubric. When an Admin updates the Rubric, it updates in real time for everyone at the school. You do not have to “save” or “publish” the Rubric for the changes to take effect.


Go to the "Edit Rubric" Screen

From the Rewards screen, click on Record in the top, left to open a dropdown menu.  Click on Edit Menu.



Starting Fresh – Deleting Categories and Behaviors

From the Edit Rubric screen, click the Red X to delete the category or behavior.

LiveSchool comes pre-loaded with an example Rubric, but you can clear it out by clicking the red “X” on the Category names and deleting the three Categories.

A few notes about deleting Behaviors that have already been recorded for Students:

  • When you delete Behaviors and Categories, Students do not lose any Points

  • The behavior will show as "Deleted Item" on Timeline, but the full Behavior name will be visible on your Points Logs

  • You will not be able to filter for this Behavior in Timeline or Scoreboards

  • You will not see the Behavior on your Behaviors Scoreboard

If all Behaviors are deleted, others need to be added before logging out. A blank Rubric will prevent logging into LiveSchool since it's required before awarding Points. If you're experiencing log in issues after clearing your Rubric, email


Create a New Category

Click on New Category and type the Category name you'd like to see.

Creating a new category allows you to create a new group of behaviors. In our Insights data reports, you can view data for a whole category of behaviors.

Keep in mind that all users will be able to view these categories while recording points BUT users can also hide whole by clicking the "Hide" button to the right of each behavior name when issuing points.

Categories are sorted alphabetically, or add a number in front of the category name to sort categories numerically. For example, if your rubric is based on a "PRIDE" acronym, you can keep the categories in the P-R-I-D-E order by labeling them as 1. Patience, 2. Respect, 3. Ingenuity, 4. Diligence, 5. Excellence.


Add a New Behavior

Creating a new Behavior updates all teachers’ and admins’ rubrics, and it will be a new Point you can view in your data.


Set the Behavior Name

Enter a behavior name up to 32 characters.

You can name a Behavior whatever you’d like. This will be the name of the Point on the Rubric, and in your Insights reports.

Behaviors are sorted alphabetically in each category, or you can add a number before the behavior name to sort them numerically.


Set the Behavior Type

Set the Behavior to Positive/Negative, Positive Only, or Negative Only

You can set Points to be both positive and negative, or just one or the other.

Since you can clearly track when students are or are not on time, you might make “Being on Time” Positive/Negative. But you might not want to give negatives for “Outstanding Participation,” so you could make that Positive Only.

Keep in mind that you have the option of subtracting points for negative behavior, but this is turned off by default.


Set the Point Value

Enter a numerical amount for point value.

If there are certain Behaviors your school is focused on reinforcing, make those behaviors worth more points so students earn extra for following those expectations.

LiveSchool supports any point value from 0-999.

STEP 8 (Optional)

Set Behavior Notifications

Click on "Add teachers or administrators" to set behavior notifications.

You can send email notifications to any LiveSchool user at your school each time a certain behavior is recorded. Notifications are generally used for negative behaviors that need immediate attention, like office referrals or bullying. Learn more in our article, Behavior Rubric: Set Up Staff Notifications.


Complete your Rubric!

Repeat steps 3-8 until your rubric contains all your school’s categories and behaviors! Congratulations, you’re ready to start recording points!
