Being able to determine which groups of students have the highest balances for the month can be helpful when incentivizing classrooms or other student groups to accrue the most dollars or points for a monthly reward.
To find this information, click on the Students tab on the top left of the screen.
Adjust the date range for which you want to analyze the data. Click on the Time Period dropdown in the top right, then click on any two dates to select a range. Once the start and end dates are selected, click anywhere outside the dropdown to apply the date range filter.
Double check that you have all the groups you need selected. When you first log in to Kickboard Answers, the student selection will be filtered to only your default group. If you want to include all groups, click the arrow on the Include dropdown then click Check All.
Next, click the graph icon to bring you to the graph visualization of the data.
You will see a graph that includes data points for each day in the selected date range and a line representing the average positivity ratio for all of your groups. You want to view the balance, so change the Metric dropdown to the Balance option. From the Unit dropdown, you can select whether you’d like to view the graph by Days, Weeks, or Months. To find the balances for a single month, select the Months option.
Then, hover your mouse over each data point to see the total balance for each group for the selected time period. In this example, the group 1st Grade Bobcats had a balance of $175.
If you select a date range longer than a month or select a unit other than “Month,” you’ll need to manually add each point on the graph to find the total for the selected time period.
