There are three ways to document behavior in Otus:

Assign Recognitions

👀 Visible to administrators, teachers, parents/families, and students

  • Administrators have the ability to create district recognitions that can be applied by staff members across the district. 

  • Teachers have the ability to create custom teacher recognitions to assign to their classes.

  • When a recognition is assigned, it is logged with the date, as well as the option to include a note with that recognition.

  • Each of the recognitions is documented and can be analyzed using the analytics tool. This is especially useful to determine patterns of  behaviors over time. 

  • If students and family members have accounts, they will also be able to see the documentation of  behaviors that are assigned with the recognition tool.

Add a Teacher Note

👀 Visible to administrators and teachers (and families, if included on Report Cards)

  • Teachers or administrators can attach notes to students within certain classes or in general for all classes. 

  • As notes are added, a running record is kept. 

  • This information is not visible to students or families unless the "Include in Report Card" option is selected.

If a class is archived at the end of a term or school year, access to the student notes added under that class will disappear.

Add Information into the Student Profile

👀 Visible to Administrators and Teachers

  • Attach notes, documents, images, or recordings to the student's profile.

  • Information will stay with the student from year-to-year.
