Classcraft vs. ClassDojo Overview


With behavior management software backed by ESSA level 1 research, Classcraft is designed to improve student behavior, academic engagement, school culture, and attendance in any setting.

Its modern, relationship-based approach to PBIS helps teachers, schools, and districts engage and intrinsically motivate students using interactive learning, storytelling mechanisms, student avatars, and other game-based mechanics. Classcraft includes an online learning platform, Quests, enabling teachers to use interactive maps as lesson plans with multiple points representing learning goals, activities, and resources.


ClassDojo is a simple classroom management solution using positive feedback and parent communication. Its technology helps teachers engage with students and parents via images, videos, and personalized messages.

The platform enables teachers to create and share digital portfolios, allowing parents or students to log in by scanning a QR code and recording videos, writing journal entries, or submitting work using images. ClassDojo excels in its practical teacher/parent communication feature and can also be a tool to build positive classroom culture, and practice positive classroom management. It also lets students showcase their work on their digital portfolios with their teachers and parents.

Engaging PBIS and SEL for schools and districts

You might be reading this because you’ve tried ClassDojo and it hasn’t met all of your needs. You may want data-driven insights into student motivation and behavior, as well as tools to keep your students engaged and thriving throughout the year.

Designed by educators, Classcraft provides robust analytics into behavioral insight for school-wide and district-wide motivational support to collaborate and grow in one empathetic learning environment.

Deeply Data-Driven

ClassDojo’s lack of in-depth analytics can leave your educators wandering in the dark without a flashlight to measure positive behavior.

Across classrooms, schools, and districts, Classcraft gives administrators all the real-time data they need to promote and measure student success — in-person or online

Low lift, high reward

After a time, students might lose interest in building ClassDojo’s avatars because the points are not tied to their character. With Classcraft’s classroom management app, students have avatars that they can customize as they gain points and make progress, which fosters intrinsic motivation to become school leaders.

Equipped with powerful integrations including Canvas and Google Classroom, teachers have access to its benefits such as rostering, seating charts, and strong parent communication and engagement, along with automated tools to drive academic engagement and performance without extra work.
