Student Goals (RTI, IEP, etc) Tracker
eDoctrina’s Student Goals Tracker can make monitoring individual student progress a snap. Educators — especially support teachers (Special Education, AIS, etc.) — love this tool which allows them to track RTI, IEP, or even individualized behavior goals with ease.
- Customize. School/districts can customize the tool to track only those goals staff members wish to keep tabs on. Users also choose the start/end dates, criteria and even the tracking method (points, percentages, etc.)
- Track. Add updated information as often as you’d like — weekly interventions, daily behavior checks, etc. The tool stores progress reports (including attendance and any special notes) all in one convenient place!
- Monitor. Each time data is entered, the tool’s graph is updated. Easily keep an eye on overall progress as it relates to a stated goal. This is also a great place to watch for notable trends that may develop over time.

Positive behavior intervention system.
Are you looking for a quick, simple way to track and reward positive behavior in your school? eDoctrina’s BeHAVE module provides schools with an easy way to configure and administer a positive behavior intervention program. This tool allows teachers and other school staff to quickly record behaviors and award points to students using eDoctrina. The system then allows students to redeem the points they’ve earned on rewards they choose.
How does it work?
BeHAVE is a very simple tool to use. The foundation of BeHAVE is the development of behavior codes that can be set up for a specific school or district-wide. The behavior codes represent student behaviors that you would like to reward. Each behavior code can be assigned a point value. Note that behavior codes can also be negative behaviors that deduct points from a student total.
Examples of behavior codes may include “Courteous to others”, “Helpful to staff”, “Clean table in cafeteria”,… The behavior list is only limited by your imagination!
Once the list is created, teachers and other staff members can use any WIFI enabled device to quickly find students and assign a behavior code / reward to them. The picture to the right shows a screen shot from an iPhone where student, Ted Ainslie, is being rewarded for Exceptional Work in Class. Each behavior code can have an optional description area so staff can provide details about the event that caused them to reward the student. Once events are assigned, emails can automatically be sent to students to notify them and indicate how many points they have earned. YES – it is as simple as that!
How are the points used by the student?
Students can redeem BeHAVE points in the BeHAVE store when they log into their eDoctrina account, Progress. The store is very easy for districts to configure and can include both tangible items (pencils, hats, stickers, tickets to a dance, …) and intangible items (Free pass to front of lunch line, late homework pass,…). Students simply scroll through available items and click the “Buy this” button.
Students can then print a reward certificate that can be redeemed for the purchased items.

Student Online Learning Experiences
SOLe is the missing link for eDoctrina to be a full-fledged learning management system. The eDoctrina SOLe module allows teachers to create engaging online learning experiences for their students. Learning experiences can be used as part of a teacher’s core instruction, as enrichment for gifted / talented students or as a Tier 2 intervention activity for students who require a little more practice. The module is only limited by the creativity of teachers and curriculum staff.
What is a Learning Experience like?
A learning experience typically consists of a variety of online content that students can navigate through as directed by their teacher or at the student’s pace. Learning experiences can include plain text, pictures, videos, hyperlinks, discussion forums, linked documents and assessments. Teachers have full control over the content students are required to access in order to move to the next step in the learning experience. Examples of the controls include:
- The student is required to open the screen for a certain period of time.
- The student is required to click on selected hyperlinks.
- The student is required to download selected documents.
- The student is required to watch a video.
- The student is required to make posts / reply in a discussion forum.
- The student must answer a certain percent of questions correctly.
Is it easy to manage?
Teachers can easily see how students are progressing using the SOLe Activity Monitor.
Is it easy to use?
Ease of use for both teachers and students was very important in our design. For teachers, we decided to use the existing unit plan editor that many teachers are already familiar with to build learning experiences from. From the student’s perspective, SOLe has the feel of many of the social networking sites they are already familiar with. Check it out for yourself:
Professional Development when you want, where you want!
Does your school district struggle to find the time to provide high quality professional development to your staff members? Do you struggle to find funds to pay for substitute teachers while also paying the high cost for on-site presenters? Have you tried instructional videos and find they were not able to engage your teachers? PD30 has been specifically designed to address all of these issues. PD30 is an affordable platform where professional development is delivered in short (30-minute) segments so teachers can participate before school, after school or during their free period.
What is a PD module like?
Typical modules will include LIVE INTERACTIVE webinars that are held on multiple days / times and are recorded for those who are not able to attend one of the live sessions. These sessions will be followed by self-directed online learning activities and discussion forums. Each module will have a LIVE INSTRUCTOR who can be contacted by participants to answer questions and facilitate discussion forums. Typically each credit will include one 30-minute webinar and about 30 minutes of self-directed activities. Modules will typically culminate with an end-of-module assessment that must be passed prior to receiving a completion certificate.
