BOSS™ - Behavioral Observation of Students in Schools™
By Pearson Education, Inc.
This app is only available on the App Store for iOS devices.
Behavioral Observation of Students in Schools (B.O.S.S.) software was designed to enable psychologists to observe students in a school environment and record students’ behaviors in real time. The B.O.S.S. software uses interactive buttons labeled to a particular behavior for the observer to press while observing a student during a given duration. The software keeps track of the amount of times a behavioral button is depressed during an observation. The statistics are calculated and displayed at the end of the observation.
What's New in Version 1.2.0
•Native support for iPad
Great assessment, but the app is lacking in flexibility and could be more user friendly. Please allow a setting that offers the assessor to view the abbreviations for added behavior observations under the template link. Also, the link for "new observation" could stand to be larger. There should be a main screen with all of the options such as "start new" "review past observations" "add new behavior observations." Also, the language should be more plain. Please make changes so that the app can be more easily navigated and flexible. Thanks!
Great tool, bad app
I use this app a lot, and it is generally great. However, I wish you had the option to save students and other demographic info so you don't need to put it in each time. Otherwise great app.
Pros: The app calculates percentages for you, his is a time saver
Cons: The app is inflexible.
There should be an option for note taking.
My template(created to add more options in lieu of note taking) should have the option to be set as my default.
There should be an option to change the default observation duration.
Overall, I loved at the idea of is app. It it is not user friendly and lacks the flexibility that users need. I had expected improvements by now.
A gentle vibration at each time interval would be an added bonus.
