Set realistic expectations
Bedrock Learning users are expected to earn 20 points a week to make optimal progress with their literacy - this sets a clear target so teachers, parents and learners are able to monitor progress.
Through Bedrock points, learners can see expectations set for their Bedrock usage, encouraging learners to self-moderate their work and take control of their own success.
Encourage healthy competition
Bedrock Learning’s point system helps bring literacy into student communities. Watch as learners discuss their progress when competing with other classes!
Why waste hours convincing learners to do their homework? Bedrock points provide a great incentive for motivating learners to improve their literacy.
Create your own competitions
Bedrock points provide a clear metric for classes, schools and trusts to make their own competitions. Bedrock’s point reports provide a variety of metrics schools can use to stoke up healthy competition.
In a society where schools are competing with social media for learners' attention, struggling readers may need more of a push to love improving their literacy - why not use Bedrock points to incentivise your students?
View data in an instant
Quickly see learners’ progress through our at-a-glance smile system, making it easier than ever to praise learners with 20 points a week and encourage those with lower usage.
Save time crunching the numbers - understanding learners’ progress data has never been simpler with the Bedrock points system.
Bedrock points work by converting the activities learners do on Bedrock into points that add up over time! For example, starting a Bedrock lesson is 2 points, and successfully completing it is 8 points.
These points provide a useful metric for viewing learners’ engagement with Bedrock, making it simpler than ever to praise learners for their hard work.
The best way to earn Bedrock points is by doing activities on Bedrock Learning. From something as small as recapping words (one point) to completing an entire Bedrock block (30 points), everything learners do on Bedrock adds up to their total points.
We use the weeks in a half-term to calculate the points needed to be entered into the prize draw. In a seven-week-long half-term, learners must earn 140 points to be entered - the equivalent of 20 points a week, the Bedrock target for optimal progress. This number may be lower or higher depending on the length of the half-term, as we are aiming for that two lessons per week goal.
While the Bedrock prize draw works as an incentive to motivate learners, you could extend that to your own prizes within your school! By running your own Bedrock competitions and prize draws, learners are guaranteed to see a winner amongst their peers, which is incredibly motivating.
Examples we have seen from Bedrock schools have been pizza parties for classes with the highest engagement, gift vouchers for the learners who spent the longest amount of time on Bedrock - there are so many ways to encourage your learners!
