Awarding Behaviour Points

Behaviour points can be awarded for positive or negative behaviour on Arbor. There are a few different places you can record points from. 

Permissions

You'll need the Behaviour: Log Point Award permission to add behaviour points. All business roles will have this permission by default, but if your school manages your permissions you may need to ask your admin team to give you permission using these instructions.

 

Recording behaviour points

From the Homepage

Select Record behaviour points from your Quick Actions.

From a Lesson Dashboard

You may already be viewing a lesson through the lesson dashboard of your class (the page you use to take the register and see class and student details).

On the lesson dashboard, there are three ways you can record points – either click the orange Behaviour button to get a drop-down menu, click the grey button, or tick the names of the students involved and click the little blue pencil on the Students panel.

Update the slide over with the details, then click Award/Deduct pointsWhen logging points you need to include:

  • Who you are awarding the point to - this can be an individual student or a group
  • The reason
  • The points being awarded or taken away

Additional notes can be added including the time, location, staff who gave the points, as well as linking it to the lesson students were in at the time.

You can also upload a file, e.g. evidence such as a photo or copy of a piece of work too.

I can't add behaviour points

If you see a message like the one shown below when trying to log points, this means your school has either:

  • not completed setting up behaviour (ask your admin team to make sure they have added attributes when setting up your point award scales)
  • does not allow you to record behaviour points without a corresponding incident being logged

Please ask your admin team about the policy for recording behaviour points in your school.

  • Hi Sally, there haven't been any recent updates to this area. It may be that you're clicking to create a behaviour incident rather than add points to one of your point award scales, which is why the slide over would look like it does here: https://support.arbor-education.com/hc/en-us/articles/115000183829-Logging-editing-and-resolving-Behaviour-Incidents

    If not, please get in touch with our support team via email or chat, as we may need to take a look at your site so cannot resolve any issues here.

  • Hi Jamie, you won't be able to record behaviour points from within a custom report.

    However, you will be able to record points for all of your custom group at once. Just select to add behaviour points from your homepage and select the custom group in the Student(s) box!
