What is On Task?

On Task is the most powerful, most flexible, behavior data collection tool available on the App Store. On Task's easy to use interface intuitively helps you collect data about the behavior of your student. Where On Task really shines, however, is in its data presentation, combining easy to read raw data with polished charts and our exclusive Timeline technology.

Who is On Task for?

On Task is designed for use by a variety of professionals in a range of settings. Whether you're a teacher, a behaviorist, a psychologist, or a parent, On Task's high level of customization allows you to tailor fit the app for your and your student's goals.

Why should I use On Task?

Simply put, there is no other app available on the App Store that does what On Task does to the degree it does it. Other apps are available that collect data, but we put our focus into turning your data into something immediately useful! On Task was built by experienced educators, who know what this app needed to make it the most powerful of its kind on the App Store!

On Task has been carefully crafted to be incredibly intuitive to use. Right out of the box, On Task is easily used by even the most technologically illiterate with no training. However, once you get under the hood, you'll quickly see how powerful On Task can be when used to its full potential.

If you like to tinker, we've got good news! Almost every aspect of On Task is customizable! Compare your observed student to a peer, or don't. Change the session length. Fine tune the time interval as short or long as you wish, or let On Task pick at random. Confidentiality a concern? Lock away the data with a personalized PIN. Choose your own tag colors (and names!) Even down to how On Task numbers the pages of data, On Task can be altered to fit YOUR personality. Not a tinkerer? That's okay, On Task will work flawlessly with the default settings!

Without context, data is just a bunch of numbers. Turn the raw data into something immediately useful with On Task! View your data in a variety of formats, from text to charts to our EXCLUSIVE Timeline technology.

Timeline is a revolutionary way of looking at your data and ONLY On Task has it. Rather than seeing how often your student was offtask, see WHEN he/she was offtask, and what conditions precluded it. Timeline enables you to see patterns that are simply invisible when dealing with pie charts and percentages.

Great tool for classroom observations

I am new to iPads and was looking for an app for classroom observations. This app is easy to use and has many great features. It immediately provides data that you can share by emailing, it provides pie graphs for the on task percentage for type of classroom activity or instruction, but the feature that I like best is the timeline. This has been a fantastic way to show parents what is going on in the classroom over time. I have had a couple of glitches pop up, mostly related to local server issues and update, but Ryan has been amazing in answering questions and helping me work through those glitches.
