Kitten stopped pooping everywhere!!

My kitten Samara has finally stopped using everywhere BUT the litter box to do her business. We had a total of 6 cats and 3 litter boxes before, and now we are down to 4 cats. I think the problem was, that there was too many cats using the litter boxes. Now I scoop every other day, and I put fresh clumping litter in the boxes (before it was the normal kind). She appears to be using the litter now...but she doesn't quite cover her business :? I think one of the other cats does it for her now lol
Maybe this story will help any other people who have a problem similar to my old one :lol:

Would you believe that now there are cat experts telling me that there should be one extra litterbox besides the 1 litterbox per cat rule? I have 3 cats and 3 litterboxes and they use 2 out of 3 per day so I was wondering if the extra box is really necessary?
Thank you AngelZoo! :D Your answer clarified my question about the extra box. However, you did say 1 litterbox/cat/level of house? My house is 3 levels! Now I need 9 litterboxes AT LEAST! :shock:
Just kidding! I do and will keep my boxes clean. Thanks again!
