Tools: Classroom Challenges

Classroom Challenges give you the ability to set Challenges for your students based on questions answered correctly at home or school in a given period. Use it to motivate math practice and encourage friendly competition!

When you create a Challenge, you can filter student progress based on Correct answers, Questions answered at home, and Questions answered at school directly from your Leaderboard.

That’s not all — once a Challenge is complete, print out fun certificates to recognize Challenge winners!

Here's how to create a Classroom Challenge:

1. From your Teacher Dashboard, navigate to the Leaderboard Widget for the classroom you'd like to create a challenge for and click Create challenge.


2. Select the duration of the challenge. Challenges can be between 1-7 days in duration.

3. You will then need to decide what criteria you'd like to set for the challenge. Choose from:

  • Most Correct Answers
  • Most Questions Answered at Home
  • Most Questions Answered at School 

4. Continue to check your Teacher Dashboard to monitor progress for the duration of the Classroom Challenge length.

5. Once the Challenge is complete, reward your top three winners with a downloadable certificate!


6. (Optional) If you need to end your challenge early for any reason, you can click Stop Challenge from the Leaderboard Widget at any time!
