The tool allows each student to have an avatar which can be customized for personal use. The teachers also have their module where they can come up with goals and habits to monitor. These goals and habits include issues such as how active the student is in class and how they submit their homework among others. The teachers then award points during the school day which are easily displayed on a smart board for viewing. By the end of the day, the teachers produce a report and send it to the parents. This tool has been of great importance to most schools as it acts as a direct link between the teachers, students and also parents.
