Apps for Tracking Student Progress
Christine R., Kansas
I am struggling to find a clean, quick, useful, and portable method for taking notes at my student’s lessons relating to their progress. I do not teach at my home or studio, I go to their homes. The notebook I’ve been using is falling apart and not doing the trick. I thought I’d try a laptop with an Excel spreadsheet, but think that the iPad would be better to carry around – I just want to make sure there is an app that would work before investing in the tablet itself.

I use Bento on my iPad for keeping track. You can create your own forms. There’s a bit of a learning curve if you aren’t used to database programs, but I use it every day in teaching.

I use an iPad. I keep records on an Excel spreadsheet that I’ve created on my MacBook Pro and saved to Dropbox. Then I use an app called Docs2Go to access it and edit it on my iPad. You could also easily use Evernote, a free app.
