App Reviews

  • Needs proper update

    By notyaverage
    There have been 5 updates since I reported the loss of getting notifications on my iPhone 8 plus. I was told to reinstall the app despite this issue being recognized as a bug that needs fixing. It still has not been fixed and these vague release notes leave a lot to be desired. As for the app use, it's a mom's nightmare if you have special needs children. If you can not ask your child what happened at school this app will leave you even more baffled. Teachers are allowed to leave unexplained negative feedback. Yes it is teacher responsibility to use it fairly but I feel this app and it's setup makes poor communicating teachers even lazier. I am expected to write *them* notes that they do NOT respond to when they mark points off, cause simply telling me makes too much sense 🙄 So how about this- stop letting teachers just lazily leave negative feedback WITHOUT notes. It should REQUIRE a note. If my child isn't doing anything worth writing about it shouldnt warrant losing points either. Messages should have a priority setting because I am starting to think my child's teachers can't read the way they dodge messages. It's ridiculous and there should be more accountability built-in to it's use cause students are not the only bullies at school. Now we just have a bunch of lazy teachers content with bare minimum forms of communication. This app could require more of teachers, otherwise it's worsening communication and behavior problems.

    I’ve used this app for 3 years now. As a parents I see a lot of room for improvement. 1. I am not notified via text and no way I have found to be notified- I am very busy and I don’t enjoy needing to go to yet 1 more app to look at my kids progress or homework etc. adds more work for me and not worth it. 2. It’s very elementary. As my son moved to upper elementary - they still use it but now there’s no progress on him- they find it’s too beneath the grade level which I agree on. 3. I like the anonymity other apps gives me and still allows me to communicate w other parents - like to remind them it’s the teacher bday etc. this app offer nothing like that. 4. I have to have the app! I have plenty of storage space now but some parents don’t! And I hear complaints often that they don’t have room for yet another app- other programs allows communication via text and no need for the app! They send sms! My kids are 3rd and 4th grade. This apps has potential to grow w the students yet it has not!! Please consider adding features for age progression. And I’m trying the at home feature- would have been great when my kids were younger but at their ages the monsters and points don’t mean near as much as the cool Games they could be playing. Over all- the younger the kid the better and only communication with teachers and no way to make a play date w a classmate even between students! Please consider adding features !

    I love the most recent changes to the student accounts, especially the ease in switching for students now. I would like to see a more streamlined process of posting pictures and videos. Right now, they can take a picture or video, add a caption, talk over the picture explaining or draw on it. Once they click the little blue airplane, they have to select their name again (even tho they are already on their own account) and then click post. I think the airplane on the previous screen should suffice in posting it. If there were to be another screen, maybe just give the option of being able to post the same picture to another student account like before. Sometimes my students are partners and they shouldn’t have to take two separate pictures for their work. I also would like some sort of feature where I can toggle on a record keeping of who is posting. For example, I might want to have students post a picture or video of their center for the day- I’d love to see a quick easy way to filter who has and has not posted to their own account during that time frame. It would be so helpful, especially when I have some centers I give students two or more days to do. Just some ideas! Thanks.
  • Fun and effective

    I'm a first year teacher in a special education 5th grade class and the behavior system I was using just wasn't cutting it. It wasn't effective for me to cross the classroom and stop my lessons to give my students reinforcements. Now I keep class dojo connected to the smart board at all times. The tap their naps in the morning to clock in for attendance. I give them points and demerits that I designed according to my needs which play a positive or negative sound. If a student earns three points in one day I give them a ticket to the classroom store. If the class gets more then 30 points I give them a class reward. The students see where the stand when it comes to their individual behavior and can see the effect they have on the group. The records they keep make report cards a breeze when it comes to marking students behavior. Parents stay connected and send messages through the app. This is all just the features of the website! The app offers added bonuses when used in tandem. The toolkit is a lifesaver with so many amazing things that it would take all day to describe them. This app is worth it a thousand times over!
  • Participation test grade

    By murnanator
    I use Dojo in my middle and high school classes. It allows me to track how students are participating in my class. I can keep track how often students come to class unprepared or are off task, and I can also reward them for working hard or persevering. At the end of the quarter, I run a report through Dojo, which gives me a percentage for each student. That percentage is used for a test grade called Participation. I can also connect parents. They see how their kids participate in class, so there are no surprises. I can also post private pictures that only the parents I think had particular class can see. I share pictures of students doing fun activities in class. Also, if they learn something particularly interesting, I post about it So the parents know “what happened at school today.” I enjoy giving parents the opportunity to increase communication with their student regarding school. This app also helps me with group work in my class. The tools option gives me ability to randomly split students into groups. The students respond well to Dojo, and this extrinsic motivation really gets them going.
  • Editing points remains elusive after all this time

    1
    By Grape Julius
    Apparently, “More things still to come :)” can be properly translated as: look forward to dozens upon dozens of future update notes that will continue to read “More things still to come :)” without the developers delivering any change of substance whatsoever. We’ve been waiting for years for a very simple tweak: the ability to edit/subtract points directly without using the “needs work” feature in 1-5 point increments. As it stands right now, it is virtually impossible to use Class Dojo with a classroom store or token economy. For example: if a student purchases an item that costs 150 points, then the only way to subtract that number of points from his account is to create a special category within “needs improvements with a value of -5, and then hit that button 30 times. Now multiply similarly priced purchases by 20 or more students each week, and the impracticality becomes overwhelming. This app is a great concept and is a powerful, fun motivator. But we have suggested the “edit points” feature for years and have received plenty of “we’ll take that under advisement” promises from customer reps, only to receive countless updates without this game changing tweak included. Until the developers take customer feedback seriously, I will forever be searching for a viable replacement.
  • Great app for quick communication!

    By jerseybird
    Excellent way to communicate any quick thing btw parent and teacher whether it is an FYI or "Brian didn't sleep well last night so he may not interact as much". Especially helpful for parents of special needs kids to keep close communication with teacher and parent to help regulate a child's routine. I've been able to get feedback from my son's teacher about his behavior throughout the day which is very helpful for me when giving him adhd medication when i need to note it's effects and what time of day. The teacher is more likely to have the convenience to give me a quick text to inform me that my son had a meltdown at 10:30a right after so I could troubleshoot with her via text. Only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is because i wish we could download data to save the progress. Like the ratings the teacher gives daily are only available for like a week. It would be nice to download to excel or something to see the progression and identify weakness or patterns in behaviors based on external factors.
  • Effective Teacher Tool

    By Dcolato
    Class Dojo is a great classroom management tool that also allows for students to safely post their accomplishments for their classmates and parents to see. Like the fact that we can message parents about issues at school, and that we have the OPTION to write a note for any positive or negative feedback. Which teacher on the planet has time to document EVERY moment in the day? The messaging system is great for a blast to all parents or individual ones. I’m happy that you can sent photos and videos of student work and participation in class. If you’re a mentor at your school, then you have the option to communicate with all parents not just the ones in your class, this is great for school-wide announcements. The app has improved over the years, BUT I wouldn’t mind additional icons - even though you can upload your own.
  • Overall okay

    By Amanda Megan
    This is the second app of its kind I’ve had for school-related stuff. My kids had Seesaw in years prior at a former school, and I really enjoyed that I only saw info that pertained to my kids in particular, unless it was something the whole school needed to see in Seesaw. In dojo, I see everything from every teacher, it seems. I also wish I had the ability to unfollow some people, as in instagram, in order to not see some of the overzealous school personnel who share things that have nothing to do with my kids whatsoever. With 4 kids in 3 different schools, who each have their own list of extracurriculars, and my spouse and I having our own multiple responsibilities outside of home and work... The unnecessary info sharing is just tedious, which leads me to ignoring the app and therefore occasionally missing vital information, as it seems to be the elementary school’s primary form of communication.
  • Classroom Management at its best!

    By AbbyDarby
    I teach 4Th. grade. At first glance I thought this app would be too childish for my students. However, I was surprised to find they absolutely love it. Their parents can see their behavior in real time. They challenge each other to top score of the day. The tool kit is amazing and I use so many of the tools they provide. I love the growth mindset videos, they are short and easy to use. The best part is the discussion points. I share pictures on our classroom story of projects, or helpful hints for parents with homework which make communication with all parents at once simple and quick. Finally, the installation and adding or removing students is super low tech and absolutely anyone can do it! Thank you ClassDoJo for creating such a helpful app that teacher like me can use to positively impact change in our classrooms!
