Whatever Your Role, CatchOn Empowers You to Make Data-Informed Decisions

Explore the following use cases to learn how CatchOn improves app management for you and your team.

Curriculum Instructor

Alice Smith


Application Renewal Time

Curriculum Instructor Alice Smith has purchased two mathematics applications to help seventh grade students. She has tested out the application across all sections. Now she needs to determine efficacy and whether or not she wants to renew her license.

CatchOn Helps: Using CatchOn, she finds that the applications had different results with different students. One app worked much better with students who came into the school year requiring remediation, while the second app helped overperformers advance even more quickly. CatchOn has now empowered her to feel confident renewing both apps, each with half as many subscriptions as before.

Chief Technology Officer

Morgan Jones


The Digital Divide

CTO Morgan Jones just left a meeting with Superintendent Susan Osborne. They have been reviewing their remote learning plans and are concerned certain students may not have consistent Internet access.

CatchOn Helps: Leveraging CatchOn, Morgan is able to easily run a report detailing usage at the student level as soon as the semester begins. After one week, she is able to see which specific students are only engaging sporadically. She is then able to circulate this report with her teachers and identify which students are possibly being left behind due to lack of home Internet access.


Janet Swanson


Setting the Class Schedule

For Principal Janet Swanson and her puzzle-oriented mind, setting the class schedule is normally a joy. But this year will consist of both remote and hybrid learning and is rife with unknowns.

CatchOn Helps: Fortunately, Principal Janet Swanson used CatchOn and its student level-data all of last school year, including the last two months that were completely remote. She is able to look back at those two months and see which students engaged at what times. This allows her to better tailor her schedule to align with the optimum engagement patterns of her students.

Professional Development Coordinator

Pat Mayberry


Matching Need with Training

Professional Development Coordinator Pat Mayberry wants to align professional development curriculum with courses that will directly, positively impact subject matter instruction, particularly with students who have fallen behind.

CatchOn Helps: CatchOn’s student-level data reporting lets Pat quickly discover which applications helped underperforming students throughout the district in the prior year. She can then make these applications the focus of district-wide professional development.


Mr. Chung


Keeping Kids on Course

Mr. Chung knows Jamal is a whiz kid at chemistry. But writing, not so much. This doesn’t really make sense because Jamal is so studious. What is happening?

CatchOn Helps: In real time, CatchOn offers Mr. Chung reporting that lets him see inequities in learning application engagement. He sees that Jamal spends 75% of his engagement time in the Chemistry app. Unfortunately, he only devotes 10% to his assigned writing lessons. Now Mr. Chung can work with Jamal to better manage his time and not fall behind in writing.
