Navigating the main interface
In this article, you can learn more about:
- The game dashboard
- Viewing class events
- Using the sidebar
- Switching between classes and students
The game dashboard (pictured above) shows your child’s character and progress. You can also see their pet (if they have one equipped), team crest, and team background.
Before you can view your child's character, the teacher will need to approve the request. Once you create your account, the teacher will be notified and can link your account to your child.
The game dashboard also enables you to reward your child for good behavior at home, such as finishing their homework. Just click on the big bag of treasure to award them Gold Pieces (GP).
Click here to learn more about the four colored bars, which represent the game points.
As your child progresses in the game and exhibits good behaviors in class, they will level up and learn powers that give them real-life privileges. You can see what powers your child has learned by clicking on the bubbles below the GP button.
Powers are divided into three types: game-based powers (help them and their teammates in the game), personal powers (give them perks like eating in class), and academic powers (support them academically, such as getting extra time on an exam).
The teacher can customize these powers to suit their classroom.
Sentences are special tasks your child must complete. Students receive a randomly selected sentence when they "fall in battle," or lose all of their Health Points (HP). Typically, students lose HP for doing negative behaviors in class.
Teachers can customize the sentences to suit their classroom.
If you click the newspaper icon (i.e., the game feed) on the top right of the game dashboard, you can view every game action related to your child and a time stamp of when it happened.
Use this to start conversations with them about what’s going on in their school day!
The sidebar is the menu system in Classcraft.
The sidebar buttons enable you to:
- View the game dashboard and your child's character (using the face icon)
- Access posts in Quests (using the map icon)
- View messages and announcements from your child's teacher (using the speech bubble icon)
- Turn game audio on or off (using the audio button in the bottom left corner)
You can switch between your child's classes using the menu at the top of the screen.
You can also click on their name beside it to switch to a different child's character.
