  • After you create a goal in the Percentally Pro 2 goal bank, you can assign the goal (as a copy of the goal in the Goal Bank) to a student. At some point, you may want to edit the goal title for the student. For example, you may have added a general goal to the goal bank, but then you want to specify it for a student’s needs. The following steps will allow you to edit a student’s goal title: 1. Tap the Students tab 2. Select a student previously added 3. With the Goals segment selected, select a goal (e.g., 3-4 word sentences) previously assigned to the student 4. Tap the title of the goal (e.g., 3-4 word sentences) 5. Edit the goal title (e.g., 4-5 word sentences) 6. Tap Done For more information, check out the Percentally website page.

  • One of the central features for Percentally Pro 2 is the schedule of sessions. Sessions are found in the primary tab of the app, and sessions must be scheduled first before running them. After you schedule sessions, you will want to know how to edit them, too. The following steps will allow you to schedule a single session and a repeating session, and to edit a session. Single Sessions If you want to schedule a session for one day only, schedule a single session via the following steps: 1. Tap the Sessions tab 2. Tap the + button to add a session 3.

  • Percentally Pro is back with version 2! In full disclosure, this means there's a separate app for the 2nd version of Percentally Pro. You might be asking yourself why is that. Well, the 1st version included dependencies on the iOS calendar and iCloud integration, both of which turned out to be very detrimental. First of all, users had to agree to let the app access their calendar in order to schedule sessions in Percentally Pro. Then, data in the app was not reliably transferred across devices by iCloud. Finally, and worst of all, users were losing student data. As a result, we had to build a separate app that removed the destructive dependencies. We built our own scheduling system, and we implemented local storage to store data in the app. Through testing, we found the 2nd version to be a[...]

  • Percentally Pro 2 is coming soon! Before it arrives, check out this video preview showing the iPad version. In the video, you’ll see how to collect data during a session, and how to export a student’s data for a select range of dates. Exporting data for a range of dates is very exciting, as it greatly improves the ability to report student progress quarterly and annually.

  • We have wanted to revamp the original Percentally app (released in 2009) for sometime now. When we had a chance to work on it, we thought Percentally could be greatly improved with several new features. Users had requested features for conducting group sessions, indicating prompting, and tracking session time, just to name a few. As we began working on adding these new features in a modern, updated interface, we realized it would be best to completely overhaul the app to make Percentally a more comprehensive data collection tool. As a result, we created a robust data collection app that is a Pro version of Percentally. At its core, Percentally Pro revolves around the notion of sessions. Since we know a majority of the work for special education staff such as SLPs, OTs, and special [...]
