Why Set Point Expectations?

Setting Point expectations in LiveSchool is crucial for creating a clear and effective Points system for educators and students. This practice serves multiple important purposes:

  1. Behavior Reinforcement

    Establishing specific Point expectations provides a clear understanding of desired behaviors, reinforcing positive actions and discouraging negative ones.

  2. Consistency

    Point expectations ensure a consistent application of LiveSchool, promoting a fair and uniform approach for everyone involved.

  3. Goal Setting

    Clear Point expectations empower students and educators to set realistic goals, fostering a sense of accomplishment upon reaching targets.

  4. Motivation

    Point expectations act as a powerful motivator, enhancing overall engagement when rewards are understood.

  5. Communication

    Clearly communicated Point expectations facilitate effective communication within the LiveSchool environment.

How to Set Point Expectations?

Setting Point expectations is a crucial step in creating a successful Points system in LiveSchool. Here are some best practices:

Clarity is Key

Clearly articulate behaviors rewarded with Points, using simple language for consistent interpretation.

Example: "Teachers will provide around 50 Points each day - 25 for attendance, and 25 for other examples of positive behavior."

Involve Stakeholders

Collaborate with educators, students, and families to create a system reflecting community values.

Align with Goals

Ensure Point expectations align with overall educational goals, connecting individual behaviors with broader objectives.

Example: If you're trying to increase attendance with LiveSchool, set a daily Point Expectation reflecting the points teachers will provide for students being present and on time.

Be Realistic

Set attainable Point expectations, encouraging active participation and goal achievement.

LiveSchool educators, on average, provide 50 Points per day and 250 Points per week.

Regular Review

Periodically review and adjust Point expectations based on community needs for ongoing relevance.
