  1. music

    Every time a child meets the weekly goal, they get 100 coins. Then they can spend the coins on music to listen to as they do their questions.

  4. Full audio needed--especially for Kindergarten

    I love the concept of ScootPad but it is still lacking what Kindergarteners need most--full audio. It does not read comprehension based texts and often doesn't read answer choices.
    I would love to recommend ScootPad to my district over IXL but this is deal breaker for us.

  5. Allow teacher to add more than 100 coins to bank accounts and remove any amount as well.

    Allow teacher to add more than 100 coins to bank accounts and remove any amount as well.

    I already do auctions with my students but it would be amazing to use Scootpad to be the main platform for my classroom economy.

    I would need to be able to manage paychecks and fines. Setting up automatic deposits would be great as well. I know this is a lot of work but starting with the ability to add any amount of coins and remove any amount would be a start.

    Hi there,

    Thanks for the suggestion! Teachers can give students bonus coins in increments up to 100. Therefore, to give a student 200, simply repeat the process :) For the removal of coins, this is something we are going to review. Keep the suggestions coming!

  6. I think you should have a more comprehensive library. Many of the books are very boring, and not easily relatable for my students.

    I love your ebook feature, but my students find many of the books to be very boring. I would like to see a wider variety of genres, especially nonfiction, and books that students would find more interesting.

  9. Assessment Times

    When assigning an assessment, we like the availible time feature. Could we get it to be custom times? Such as 8:26- 9:20. This is the actual class time. Or could we at least add half hour slots as well? Thanks

  10. Add an "I don't know this yet" option in diagnostic

    Students really struggle with the idea of "guessing" in the diagnostic - not understanding a question and being asked to "just guess" is very deflating and messes with their confidence. Instead, why not add an "I Don't Know This Yet" button to give them a way to opt out without feeling dumb. We use IXL - who does this and it really empowers the kids to plug through the diagnostic.

    Hi there! Thanks for the suggestion! Our team will be starting to review this as an enhancement to the platform for SY 19/20. As always, we are appreciative of your feedback!

  11. Teachers should be able to set the timing/number of facts in fact fluency BY STUDENT - rather than for the entire class.

    We all have kids who are either stressed by timing or need accomodations for number of facts - but the whole class does not need that same setting change.

  15. Removing Goals for Classrooms without ELA or Math

    You guys implemented the aspect below - but now in addition, we need to have Goals for these subjects removed if we are not using the main topic, it is frustrating for kids to see goals for a subject they do not have access to! Thank you!

    Custom Classroom set up for clubs and afterschool activities

    I would like to be able to set up a classroom and choose what subjects to include in the dashboard. An afterschool club would use the class wall for planning and discussion but would not need ELA, Math etc)

  18. Disable scratchpad option

    Allow Scratchpad to be disabled. I have a couple of students who use it as a drawing pad instead of doing their work.

  19. Longterm Leaderboards/Leaderboard History (archive)

    The Leaderboard is currently updated weekly with no ability to see prevoius Leaderboards. I would like to be able to see an accumulation of problems solved/coins/time spent/etc over time. My class is in competition with another class and we are looking at overall problems solved over the course of several months.

  20. Performance Tasks

    I would like to see some performance assessment style assignments that require the use of multiple standards and steps. The assignment might require multiple steps, but it would be just one assignment.
