About & Pics
The PBIS Rewards System is a tool and tracking system for schools that follow a PBIS framework and utilize rewards to encourage positive behavior. The PBIS Rewards System simplifies giving rewards and redeeming rewards by taking advantage of the scanning capabilities of smartphones and tablets.
Teachers and Administrators give students points by scanning a bar code or QR code assigned to the student. The process is fast and simple. The bar code can be on a nametag, desk sticker, class roster sheet, or a student ID badge. Students can then redeem points for privileges and/or items using a similar process.
The backend system supports the concept of events and a store. There is a simple interface for creating and managing events and items within the store. The backend system also keeps track of students and teachers and all activity related to giving points and point totals.
Teachers and Administrators can access a desktop system to review a student's history, balance, etc. Administrators have the ability to add and remove students and add and manage teacher access.
No more fumbling around with torn up papers, cutting out reward documents, or keeping track of mountains of tickets…digitize your incentives with PBIS Rewards.

WHAT'S NEW IN PBIS Rewards 3?
* Updated the menu of the Staff app
The PBIS Rewards Staff App is getting better and better thanks to your feedback. This update adds some features to help teachers working at multiple locations and teachers sharing devices.
The new PBIS Rewards Staff app has a more expandable menu that is easier to use and leaves room for future features (hint, hint).
App Authorization: To keep students from guessing a teacher's code and logging in as teachers, teachers now click a link in their email when initially setting up the app on your device. This means that you will only be able to give points from your device when you are logged in, keeping anyone else from giving out points another way.
You can always suggest changes and see what we are working on at pbisrewards.com.
New in this version is the ability to give referrals with a search by name instead of needing to have the nametag available to scan. Also improved group scanning for giving points and checking balances, improved store layout and searching, and some known bug fixes.
The icon has also been updated to fit with our partner apps for students and parents. The PBIS Rewards suite includes the PBIS Rewards Staff App (for teachers and admins), the PBIS Student App and the PBIS Parent App.
Improved user interface when using the store and when using the events. Removed the student lookup so that the users can only assign points or redeem points when the actual barcode is present.
We also added a small prompt that will show which version the user has loaded for easier tech support and testing.
This is one of those updates where we hope you don't notice that anything changed at all, except that your experience with the app is a little smoother.
Some teachers reported the app locking up while scanning, this has been fixed.
