To give encouragement in the classroom, teachers can award students with feedback points (also known as Dojo points). Teacher can customize the feedback types to any skill they like, such as “grit” or “curiosity.” A student and his/her parents can view all the feedback points he/she received by creating a student account using the unique access code provided by their teacher. These codes can only be passed out by the teacher. They cannot view other students’ feedback points unless the teacher chooses to project the class (for example, with a Smartboard or interactive whiteboard), then other students in the class will be able to see aggregated total points of other students.
ClassDojo sets limits on how long feedback points on student profiles are retained. For all students, feedback points older than 365 days are automatically deleted, unless the student or their parent chooses to retain them by creating their own associated account. For example, if a teacher sets up a class on ClassDojo on January 1, 2016, unless students or parents create accounts, on January 1, 2017, any feedback points given in that class on or before January 1, 2016 would be deleted. After an account is created by a student or parent, the feedback points associated with that student’s account will be kept until the teacher deletes his or her account, or upon deletion by both the student and parent of their account (only for feedback points 365 days or older).
