    Do you have any templates or ideas for how to create an ongoing scoreboard? We are starting a “tribes” schoolwide competition between our students that has them earn/lose points together as a tribe. (Think like — Harry Potter and the way they earn/lose points for their house) We’re wanting to create something that is easy for all of the teachers to select the tribe and just plug in +/- points.

    • Hi Jessica,

      I’ve used Class Dojo for score-keeping in this way. Just set up a class for your competition and then create a “monster” for each tribe. Then set one positive behavior and one negative behavior. When you select the tribe and choose the positive behavior, it adds a point. If you choose a negative behavior, it subtracts a point.

      I hope this makes sense and is helpful!
