This document is useful mainly for Staff and Prefects, but you shall know the ways you can earn and lose points.
House Points can only be awarded and deducted during official roleplay only. This means that Staff are not allowed to award or deduct points during unofficial roleplay.
Note: Professors may deduct points from any House. However, Prefects can only deduct from their own House and also have to follow these guidelines. In addition, Professors are restricted to 75 Points per day and when they are awarded, a reason must be stated.
Professors may choose whether or not to award House Points, but when doing so, the student(s) they are awarding points to must have done any of the following things.
+5, when a student has shown interest and participation while the rest of the class has not.
+5, when a student has shown excellent demonestration and/or has successfully completed a task given by a Professor.
+5, when a student has answered to a question asked by a Professor correctly AND with excellent detail. (Just answering a question correctly does not qualify in points being awarded!)
Format: +X | USERNAME | HOUSE | REASON
Note: Other reasons are to be permitted if given permission by the Headmaster and School Administrators.
Note 2: When Staff do not use the format to award points their points will not be added to the house.
