There are three ways to document behavior in Otus:

Assign Recognitions

Will be visible to Administrators, Teachers, Parents, 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".

  • 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.

Adding a Teacher Note

Visible to Administrators and Teachers (if included on the report card, also to Parents)

  • A way for teachers or administrators to attach notes to students within certain classes. 

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

  • This information is not visible to students or parents (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 will disappear.

Adding Information into the Student Profile

Visible to Administrators and Teachers

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

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