Description

Oncore is a new, teacher-created classroom management system that helps teachers create learning environments that are fair, focused, and feedback rich.

Oncore doesn’t just track behavior, it tracks learning, and it integrates seamlessly within a teacher’s existing workflow, saving teachers hours of planning time while reducing their paper load.

By using the seating chart as the classroom interface, Oncore helps teachers collect color-coded, one-touch data on student learning, integrating formative assessment and feedback into their daily practice.

Oncore focuses any K-12 classroom on mastery learning by helping teachers engage all students, check for understanding, create collaborative groups and communicate learning and behavior progress to parents.

Unique to Oncore is its integration of Common Core and Next Generation Science Standards. Teachers can tie a standard to classroom activities, groups, assignments, or individual participations with students.

Oncore is created by a teacher who saw the need for a tool to make him a better instructor, a tool that would help him engage all of his students in learning.

Not Quite There

Bendom

I pay for the annual subscription. Though Oncore is indeed a beautiful app, it is currently missing important make-it-or-break-it features.

The following fundamental abilities are absent from this app and must be implemented:
* It is not currently possible to add an assignment to multiple classes. If you teach four blocks of geometry, you must add the same assignment four times.
* There is no spreadsheet or table view of student grades. Why bother with grading categories and category weighting?
* The library of standards is limited.

Things I like:
* UI. This is a fantastic User Interface.
* Seating charts and seating chart assessment. Say you have a few hundred students and have trouble learning names. This feature is indispensable.
* Groups. Great feature!

Thing I’d like changed or improved:
* The ability to hide Archived classes.
* Hide daily snapshot.
* Have a view to see all classes.
* Have a sidebar for assignments when you’re in class view. That way, if your students are submitting multiple assignments, you can switch more quickly.
* Ability to mark students absent from assignment or participation windows.
* Class groups. Say you teach a few Freshman English classes, and a couple AP English Classes. Group them!

I look forward to using this app more, after it’s been developed a bit more.

Missing key features, frustrating

Fisherwe

I want to love this app because it looks great and has potential, but it is missing key features to actually make it useful. First, the reports are a joke. I use it to track quality of my students homework, but there is no report that lets me view a single student and their scores for all the assignments. What's the point of inputting in scores if you can't view them easily? Second, the seating chart feature is less than stellar. You can't simply click on a student and drag their name to the spot you want them. It gets cumbersome clicking on every student and then clicking again where you want them. There is also no"random" seating chart assignment. Third, when you input a note in for a particular student it populates to to the notes section for ALL students. Fourth, if you accidentally hit a positive behavior instead of a negative one, there is no way to delete or change it.

Good idea... Awful start

Purpleshrub

Ok, to start this was a great idea and could really be turned into something amazing. However, this app just isn't ready to be used. The UI is clunky and takes a great deal of time to acquire any basic familiarity with it. You can't see the students in certain modes when you should be able to and there are a host of other serious issues that need to be addressed before they should be considering this app ready for the public. This is barely qualifiable as a beta program let alone something to sell for $7. Don't waste your money until they do some serious updates and overhaul. The whole point of this app was to save me time with student growth goals data and it definitely cannot do that yet.
