Oncore Classroom Productivity
Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
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.
What's New in Version 2.0.58
critical bug fixes
UI updates for iOS 9
A good start
I like what I've seen so far. I wish I could just move students freely around the screen to change spots
Missing key features, frustrating
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.
Really useful; could be indispensable with a few additions
This app is great for tracking standards mastery, randomization, and taking roll. A few fixes and additions would make this indispensable in the classroom:
Email notifications need way more information than a simple icon.
A web portal would be a great way to access a student's history
The ability to color-code or add symbols to a student's info would be helpful for IEPs, 504s, etc
Ability to access class roll records, or any records, online or even on app.
Ability to generate PDFs of various reports.
I know this app will only get better with each update. I look forward to seeing what comes next!
