Comprised of rich note-taking capabilities and a versatile gradebook, Chronicle is an iOS app that enables teachers to easily implement best practice methodologies. Using all the features of the iOS platform, Chronicle is a transformative device designed to efficiently inform instruction and chronicle student growth.
Rich, Meaningful Data
Chronicle surpasses traditional anecdotal notes by utilizing multimedia technology, allowing teachers to quickly capture and share student progress via text, photo, video, and audio.
Discover the possibilities in using this data to drive instruction, provide meaningful feedback, enhance communication, and foster student growth.
Customizable Text Fields
The format of notes may vary depending on teacher or administrative preferences. Therefore, the text field descriptors for one class, such as Reading, may differ greatly from those of another class, like Mathematics. This is why Chronicle offers easy text field customization from one class to the next.
Chronicle also enables teachers to easily import Speed Notes - a text field's previously inputted notes. Save time by tapping any text field's Lightning Bolt to quickly access and reuse these notes.
Provide an impressive narrative of student growth by selecting any note (text, photo, video, or audio) and designating it as an artifact.
An artifact is any note that the teacher would like to recognize as a benchmark achievement, milestone, or some other indicator of student progress.
Formative Assessment Made Easy
Use the unique "Traffic Light" design to quickly assess understanding, achievement, or progress. Based on proficiency, assign students the color red, yellow, or green by tapping their corresponding traffic light signals. Attach a descriptor of whatever is being assessed and store it in a dropdown list. Sorted according to proficiency, this data can be accessed at any time for future reference and instructional decisions.
Common Core Standards
If you teach in a state that has adopted the Common Core Standards, Chronicle allows you to easily activate and incorporate them into your daily teaching routine.
Chronicle is intentionally designed to support educational standards in any school, district, or state, not only those in which the Common Core Standards apply. We welcome inquiries regarding Chronicle's ability to support your standards.
Transcending the limitations of a traditional gradebook, Chronicle offers a number of extremely helpful features, including easily accessible comments, color-coded tracking of student progress, and quick calculation of class or individual averages.
Chronicle's integrated gradebook also enables quick navigation between a student's notes and grades.
Various other features are found within Chronicle's user-friendly design, such as iCloud and Dropbox integration, the management of groups, and the ability to view student data in multiple dimensions.
