Count how many laps each of your students has run and automatically calculate the total distance. Export the results.
Everything happens without a single click and without entering a single name! The app counts how often a QR code is shown. The students have their QR code scanned after each round. Enter a lap length and the app automatically calculates the total distance run and creates a ranking list. This can be exported as a .csv file for further processing.
This app is based on the popular QR Counter and has been adapted to the wishes of sports teachers. The highlights are the automatic distance calculation, the prevention of cheating and the acoustic lap counter.

-> CREATE MULTIPLE QR CODES ONLINE AT http://www.teaching-apps.com
Simply type in all names/items at once and get multiple QR codes in a PDF, which you can then print and save. It couldn’t be any easier! Each QR code is embedded in a student ID card in a credit-card size. These cards can be used for different apps and uses.
Ratings and Reviews
Paid and downloaded, nice concept except that it does not scan codes quickly. I found that you have to have the QR code completely still and centered on the scanner which is hard for my younger students. This slows down the running times and students get back up at the scanning station. At this point it is not useful for me in the class room.
Not there yet!
You need to combine this with the stopwatch...I need to be able to keep track of laps/distance and time for my PE classes.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
