uPoints in uTheory

Let's get right to the point – here's how we calculate uPoints:

-       Each lesson video watched = 10 points

-       Each correct answer = 5 points

-       Incorrect answers that eventually lead to correct answers = 2 points

-       Each day skipped practicing = 10 point reduction

Why Points Matter

Points are a tool to provide students with a concrete perception of their progress. While points don't impact student grades, the idea is to foster intrinsic motivation within students to develop their skills through steady practice over time, rather than cramming just before an assessment. It may be helpful to set point goals for students (or perhaps even a little friendly competition?) to encourage continued achievement.
