Great to track tardies!
My high school has been using the HERO system now for the past three school years. The app makes it very easy for us to track tardies and assign immediate consequences. It’s been great at processing students through what used to be a lengthy process. It’s also great for giving immediate positive behavior points. There’s nothing like whipping out your phone to give HERO points to really get students working.
However, there are a couple things I wish it did that it isn’t currently capable of: 1. It would be great to have a student picture associated with each kid. That way they can’t give someone else’s name when they are tardy! 2. For the love of all things, please find a kid’s name even if there’s a space after the first or last name. 3. It would also be great if it found similarly spelled names. For example, the spellings of Dishaun and Deshaun are remarkably similar. If both could pop up after I search the name that would be great. It helps to find students a little more quickly.
Tl;dr: Useful app & great program!
What a sorry for an excuse of an app. I can't believe my school paid for them and then they promoted this lame companion app.
As a teacher I should be able to quickly scan a barcode, image, or name and give them positive reinforcements. Instead, I am left to search for their names or ID number. This is precious time that I do not need to be looking at my phone or tablet! It should be simple and fast.
Compared to their online website, this app is lacking in nearly every useful information. Seriously, who at this company does the QA check? It must be a 4 year old cause that is sure what it looks like.
This app makes giving hero points very cumbersome. Teachers have to award points individually and it is time consuming because you have to keep going from one screen to another. I wish there was a way for the app to allow for multiple students to receive points in one sitting. For example if I wanted to give points to all the students who remembered their reading book, I could walk around and scan their ID cards quickly and then hit submit. So...that’s why it’s a bit difficult to get teacher buy in on this program.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
