App crashes in custom class mode
When I try to change my students’ reading levels in the roster (in custom classes) the app crashes every time.
This is the only problem I’ve found so far after using the app for about a month.
it is makes sense. I have used it for 1 year. I love it. “Efficient” is how I am described.
BEST Conferring App available!
Chronicle is the most functional, easy to use, and comprehensive conferring app I've ever used. The ability to group and take notes by skills and strategies as well as to record progress for individual students is priceless when time is at a premium. Color coding for proficiency levels lets you pull strategy groups at a glance, and the coloring for days since your last conference enables every teacher to ensure no one falls through the cracks. Love, Love, Love it and have purchased it for my entire staff!! Thank you
