Set a Point Goal, Set a Time Frame, Set a Category, and create an Unforgettable Event!

Point goals are a popular Reward system that build relationships, supports your SEL goals, and build community between students and staff.

Point goals are simple:

  • Students must earn a certain number of Points in a given time period.

  • The goal can be for all LiveSchool Points or a specific category.

  • Students who meet the goal get to participate in your unforgettable event.

Pulling Data for your Point Goals

LiveSchool's Insights makes it quick and easy to see a list of who's eligible for your incentive.

Go to Students Scoreboard

Go Insights > Scoreboards > Students to view merits and demerits.

Students Scoreboard shows you every student in your school, and their:

  • Total positive (Merits) points.

  • Total negative (Demerits) points

  • The ratio of their positive to negative points,

  • Earned points (total positive points minus negative points (if your school subtracts for negatives))

  • Spent points (points spent in Rewards Store)

  • Saved points (Earned minus Spent)‍

Access the Appropriate Roster or Grade

Students Scoreboard defaults to show you all of the students in the school, but you can access a specific Roster or grade using the Roster Picker.

Click on "All Students" in the top, left corner to select an alternative Roster.

Choose the Appropriate Time Frame

Click on the calendar icon to edit the timeframe displayed.

Make sure that you're calculating which students are eligible for the incentive based on when you told students your Point goal was starting, whether it was for a week, the month, or maybe even the quarter.

Add Logic to View Students Who've Met the Goal

Click the Merits column header to access the sorting and filtering options.

Click the Merits column header to access the sorting and filtering options.

Choose Add Logic then add a scenario of more than a certain amount of Points.

You can then add the number of merits you're basing your Point goal on, and when you save Students Scoreboard will only show you the students who've earned enough Points (for all behaviors on your rubric) for this point goal incentive.

Add a Filter for a Specific Behavior or Category (Optional)

Click on Merits and then filter.

Adding a Behavior or Behavior category contingency to your Point goal can help you target specific Behaviors in your school.

To see a list of who's earned a certain amount of Points in a specific Behavior or category, we'll add a filter.
