How I Use It
I use it to award points when students participate in class. Participation can be a very nebulous thing to grade, and this lets me see exact acts that I can reward when I sit down to figure up a grade.
Classdojo allows me to track participation in class by using points awarded for behaviors I select. At the same time, I can track behavior separately. And at the end of the week, parents are sent a pie chart of their student's positives and negatives.
