Tier 1 Intervention — Viewing and editing School Kits

School Kits provide you and the teachers in your district or school with a list of behaviors, powers, pledges, and settings used for all the students within the grade it’s assigned to.

  2. Find the School Kit you want to edit in the list
  3. Click on the School Kit’s name to view it

Behaviors

The behaviors in a School Kits are the expectations for all the students the grade or grades that this kit is assigned to. This is what we call Tier 1 (or universal) intervention.

These behaviors can be positive (what you expect students to do) or negative (what students shouldn't do). Negative behaviors can only be used in classes that have reached Chapter 4. Learn more about class progression and chapters here.

Behaviors with the same goal are grouped together. This is the goal they’re assigned to.

6. Goal image

7. Behavior description

This is what you expect students to do (in the case of a positive behavior) or not (for negative behaviors). Teachers, students, and parents can see the behavior description in their respective log.

8. Positive behavior

In the Type column, a + sign indicates a positive behavior for which students may earn Experience Points, Gold Pieces, or both.

9. Negative behavior

In the Type column, a - sign indicates a negative behavior, which causes students to lose Health.

10. Priority

You can decide each behavior’s priority. The higher the priority the more rewards students will receive (for positive behaviors) or Health they will lose (for negative behaviors). Try to have few Highest priorities behaviors so it’s clear to students what they should be focusing on.

Adding behaviors

To add a new behavior to a School Kit:

  1. Click Tier 1 in the sidebar navigation
  2. Select the School Kit you want to add a behavior to
  3. Click the purple Add behavior button
  4. Decide if you want to create a positive or negative behavior
  5. Enter a behavior description
  6. Optionally, choose the goal this behavior is connected to
  7. Select the behavior priority (which will adjust how many Experience Points and Gold Pieces students can earn or how much Health they will lose)
    Note: Click Advance to view the fields and fill in this information yourself.
  8. Click Save to create this behavior and add it to the list or Save and create new to create this behavior and start creating another one immediately after.

When adding behaviors for your district or school, it’s a good idea to:

  • Have more positive than negative behaviors
  • Keep the number of high priority behaviors low so students know exactly what to focus on
  • Consider that these behaviors have to make sense for all students in the grade (instead use Tier 2 & 3 intervention for more

Powers

Powers are special abilities that students can use, granting them advantages in Classcraft or in real life. There are different kinds of powers. Some are:

  • Universal, meaning that every student has access to them
  • Specific to a character class
  • Game-based so they give advantages in game (like restoring lost Health)
  • Collaborative, which means that they benefit another student

To use powers, students need to have Crystals. Learn more about powers and Crystals here.

Settings

As an administrator, you can edit various settings that affect every class in the grade of a School Kit. Teachers can’t edit these settings on an individual basis so that students have a consistent experience across all their classes.

Here are the settings you can edit:

  • Maximum chapter in class progression: Teachers can’t progress any farther than this chapter with any of their class. This is a great way to lock features they may not need to have access to. Learn more about chapters and class progression here.
  • Experience Points needed to level up: This is the amount of Experience Points students need to earn in order for their level to go up by one.
  • Experience Points per Crystals gained when a student uses a collaborative power: Collaborative powers benefit other students than the one who activates it. This mean that the student who uses a collaborative power gains a little bit of Experience Points for their good deed. The amount of Experience Points depends on how costly the power is.
  • Amount of Crystals that regenerates every day: Regeneration unlocks in Chapter 4. Every day at midnight, students automatically regain this amount of Crystals, enabling them to use their powers without having to level up … eventually.
  • Amount of Health that regenerates every day: Regeneration unlocks in Chapter 4. Every day at midnight, students automatically regain this amount of Health.
  • Amount of Health that students have after falling: This setting unlocks in Chapter 4. When a student loses all their Health, they fall and have to complete a pledge. This is the amount of Health a student has after they fall and resume playing Classcraft.
  • Amount of Health lost when a teammate falls: This setting unlocks in Chapter 4. When a student falls, all their teammates will lose a little bit of their Health, possibly causing more students to fall, creating a cascading effect.

Click the Save changes button when you’re done making changes. After making changes, use the Reset to default to return to the settings provided with your School Kit.
