Oncore Classroom Productivity
Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
Oncore is a classroom productivity and instruction tool aligned with the Common Core State Standards
Oncore helps teaches do what teachers do: taking roll, stamping (“apping”) homework, creating groups, communicating with parents, and engaging all students.
With Oncore we want to do one thing well, effective classroom instruction. The creators of Oncore, a public school teacher and a computer programmer, looked closely at the Common Core and asked one question: How can we help teachers meet this remarkable challenge?
The result is an app that helps teachers minimize their paper load, streamlines their instructional process, and most importantly, gives tons of feedback both to the teacher and to the students in class.
Oncore will work in any k-12 classroom with one ipad. Oncore's one touch assessment automatically updates student profiles, informing instructional choices: data informed instruction every day, no spreadsheets or online reports necessary!
From the seating chart to a student interaction to a student history report, teachers get simple, visual feedback about how students are learning, every day, several times a day.

Great classroom app
This app makes a lot of sense. I use it in many ways in my class. I can take attendance, track discipline, call on students, and evaluate their work quickly. It takes me about 20 seconds to create groups. I have not used the standards linking feature much. I'd like to see better data reporting in the classroom reports mode. The best part of Oncore is that my students are so focused, and I'm more focused too.
Just what I needed
I was scared to pay for an unrated app. But I was pleasantly surprised. Super easy to import class list, assign seats, and keep track of participation. Love the attendance has several options for tardies. Would be perfect if I could download PDF Reports and write my own notes. Otherwise I love it. Also like that you can push a button and it randomly selects a student.
Great but needs more
Two things this app needs to be killer:
1) A way to export grades from an assignment or to just export a spreadsheet of all the students with a Column for participation, attendance, and each assignment.
2) A way to include standards besides CCSS. Such as the new science standards.
