You can create rewards to celebrate your pupils' achievements in Doodle. These can be anything of your choosing, from an extra 10 minutes golden time to a space on the termly pizza party!

Designed to celebrate each child's hard work and determination, rewards will help to inspire them in their learning, encouraging them to use Doodle for a few minutes each day. Rewards give your pupils even more opportunities to spend their hard earned DoodleStars.

You can choose how many stars you’d like each reward to be worth, making them a great way to promote positive learning behaviours and help each child progress in their learning. And best of all, you can create them in just a few clicks 🎉

How to create a reward for your pupil

  1. Log in to the Teacher Dashboard

  2. Hover over Manage and press Rewards

  3. Select the programme you'd like to create the reward in - DoodleMaths, DoodleTables, DoodleEnglish or DoodleSpell by selecting the corresponding subject icon in the top right hand corner

  4. Select Create reward

  5. Enter a reward of your choosing - the more creative, the better! (there's a 20 word limit for this)]

  6. Enter the number of stars required to unlock their reward

  7. Select the pupils you’d like to set the reward for - you can choose to assign to a whole class or individuals within a class

  8. Press Create reward; the goal will then appear in your child's chosen Doodle app

How to view rewards set

You can visit the Rewards page at any time to see the rewards you’ve created and whether your pupils have unlocked them. From this page of the Teacher Dashboard, you'll be able to see:

  • What rewards you've set

  • How many stars each one is worth

  • Who the reward is for

  • Its status (available to buy or purchased)

  • The delete reward button (the blue x icon)

  • A tickbox to mark rewards as redeemed. This will mark a reward as ‘used’ in your student's app

If the child has not purchased the reward it will say 'available', if the child has purchased the reward it will say 'bought'. Where children have 'bought' the reward a box will appear in the redeemed column which you can tick when you have given the reward to them, to help you manage the rewards more easily.

How to edit a reward

To edit any reward details, simply click on the row of the reward and this will bring up a Edit reward box. Any changes made will be reflected in the child apps.

*Only available rewards can be edited and deleted. Bought or redeemed rewards can’t be edited or deleted.

How can my pupils view Rewards in their app?

Your pupils can view these rewards by visiting any of the Doodle apps.

  1. Log in to Doodle

  2. Select the arrow icon in the top left-hand corner of the Learning Zone

  3. Click on Stars and press Rewards

Any rewards you’ve created for them will automatically appear on this page. The Rewards Shop tab will show any rewards that have been set for the child. The Purchased tab shows any rewards that have been bought by the child.

  • A grey box shows rewards that your pupil hasn’t yet unlocked

  • A coloured box shows rewards that your pupil has unlocked

  • Any rewards that have been redeemed will be marked as 'Used'

When a user taps on a reward they have enough stars for, it opens up a box that includes more detail about the reward (title, number of stars needed and who created it) and a Buy Reward button.

Once purchased, the reward will now move from the Reward Shop tab to the Purchased tab.
