Self-Scoring Class Behavior

I have this idea written on a sticky note, and I’m not sure where it came from, but it’s something I’d like to try some day.

At the end of the day, have students agree upon a score to give themselves as a class based on how well they followed expectations of working quietly, on-task, efficiently, etc. Maybe develop a rubric (1-5) to make scoring more concrete.

Scores may be posted each day, not so classes can compete with each other (which might lead to students giving higher scores each day even when they don’t deserve it) but so they can see how they, as a class, are improving. A reward may be given once the class reaches a satisfactory number over a period of time. For example, the class may get a reward if they get excellent marks (5/5) all week or if they get 5s three times for one week.
