Updating Student Counters to the Correct Step in your Progressive Discipline Framework

This article discusses how to update a student or students to a specific step (counter) in your progressive discipline automation group sequence in Minga.

If a student has received a consequence by mistake or has reached the final step in your progressive discipline framework, you can reset them to the correct or desired step in your discipline framework by updating automation counters. 

Update Automation Counters

Step by step:

1. Navigate to the Behaviors tab in Behavior Manager and select Automations

2. Select the Automation Group that contains the Consequence for which the student needs reset

4. To reset specific students or one student click Select student(s) 

5. Search for the student by name, Group, List, Grade, or Role. You can also upload a CSV file or scan the student's Digital ID with a scanner or device camera

6. Click Apply filters and select the student(s) you wish to reset

7. Enter the new automation counter value (the new behavior threshold for the student)

To reset the behaviour completely enter 0, meaning no automatic consequence will occur. To bring a student to a different portion of the automation enter the behaviour threshold number that would trigger that step. For example, to trigger a Lunch Detention using the Tardy Policy above, we would enter 3, this triggering the Automation Group to continue from this behaviour threshold onward

8. To reset the counter for ALL students, click All Students on the drop-down and then enter the desired behavior threshold number
