Point Card for Check in Check out

Linda Tyrrell May 17, 2018 05:15PM PDT

When entering data, your system only allows to enter from 0 to 6.
Our children do not respond well when receiving a 0, even when we have conferenced with them about the reasoning for receiving a 0.
Is it possible for our school to set up a system where we can have 1 / 2/ 3 for our system.
Many thanks.
I look forward to hearing from you.

It’s not possible to change the CICO point scale from 2,1,0 to any other scale at this time. CICO-SWIS is designed to work with a 0-2 rating scale. The key piece to remember is that the point values will not be equal and may appear to be meeting goal on their card but not in the CICO-SWIS system. In our 7 Dos and Don’ts article (which you can find here) we recommend using a 0,1,2 point scale instead of a 1,2,3 point scale. Students who struggle to receive negative feedback often need help managing that skill. Using the preferred scale forces us to address how we give feedback as well as how our students learn to receive that feedback.

Optionally, you could change the rating system that you use on paper before transposing it into CICO, but the rating scale would need to fit within a three point scale that can be converted when doing data entry. For example, we’ve seen schools have a lot of success with younger students by utilizing a picture-based point card, where a caterpillar, cocoon and a butterfly correspond to different point values. For more example point cards, you can find them under our Point Card Examples item in our CICO-SWIS materials, which you can find here.
