I use this app for my classes. It's great for tracking an individual student's progress, but it needs a feature that allows you to view all students with similar categories or assessments at a glance. It already gives a timestamp for every update to each individual student, so it would be helpful to be able to list all students within a specific group or category that share a particular assessment on a specific date. It's great to be able to track the students' progress individually, but it would be great to be able to see the whole class' progress at a glance, sorted by date, group, category or assessment. Wonderful database, not so user-friendly interface. Great concept! Almost there!
Useless as wheels do not work. I am a beginning teacher looking forward to my first year. This app looks like it would be effective if the wheels worked, disappointed as it is so difficult to sort through all the teaching apps to find what you are looking for.
Not ready for primetime. Wheel function doesn't work. Could be useful for teachers if it worked properly.
