We hope 2018 is off to a great start for you and your students! In January, we've been focusing on several changes that will make your Freckle experience smoother without changing your workflow too much. In the meantime, we're cooking up some bigger improvements for future months, so stay posted for more exciting updates!

QR code sign-in on iPads

Students using iPads can now sign in to Freckle with QR codes! This will make signing in easier and faster for students. Teachers can find and print the QR codes in their Roster page by clicking on Class Options.

You can now choose whether to sort your class roster by first or last name. Just visit your Settings page to choose your preference.

Easier sorting of Activity Feed

When you're viewing your Activity Feed, you can select the type of practice you'd like to view in each subject. Selecting "only" when you hover over a type of practice will deselect the others so you can focus on one at a time.

Search for a standard in Target Practice

When you're assigning a Targeted Practice session, you can now quickly search for the standard you want students to work on. Simply type your standard into the text box.

School administrators will now see a new report in the school dashboard which shows Freckle usage by subject and by practice type.
