Setting a Start Date (and Re-Starting the Competition)

The House Points Dashboard will only show points earned on or after the start date.

Set the start date for the first day of your competition, and repeat these steps if you'd like to restart the games for a new quarter.

The start date updates the dashboard for everyone in the school.

From the House Points main menu, choose Options, then click the date next to "Competition Start Date:". Choose a new date and click back, and the Dashboard will be updated automatically, and for the whole school.

Do not click "Reset House Points" unless you'd like to reset house points to default settings. But if you do, don't worry! You can re-link your house rosters to House Points using these steps.

Subtract Negative Points from House Totals?

You can choose whether negative points earned by individual students deduct from House totals.

This setting is separate from the Subtract Points for Negative Behavior setting that affects student point balances.

From House Points main menu, choose Options, then click No, Don't Subtract to make your choice.

When "Yes, Subtract Points" is chosen, the Dashboard will update for the whole school with what negative point (behavior) was recorded, but will not show which student earned the negative point.

Display The Dashboard!

Displaying the House Points Dashboard can add an exciting, and rewarding, element to your competition. Every time a point is earned, the student's name is recognized on the Dashboard -- including which point they earned.

Your dashboard also displays the real-time standing for each House in your competition. As each house earns points, the totals change in real-time. We recommend that you display your dashboard throughout the building in common areas so that students are more engaged with your competition.
