Meet Rick Kubina, one of co-founders of Chartlytics. Rick has worked as a Professor at Clarion University (1999-2000) and The Pennsylvania State University (2000-present) teaching courses on, and researching, the science of individual measurement and performance/learning improvement. Before becoming a Professor, Rick did his undergrad at Youngstown State University where he first learned about Precision Teaching and how to best measure and display individual behavior. Then he went to The Ohio State University were he earned a Masters degree in special education further learning about measurable superior educational practices and how to best understand effective change procedures. After working for three years as a behavioral specialist and special education teacher he went back to Ohio State and earned his doctorate. Rick has conducted research, mentored students, and published papers and books on the science of graphical display and powerful performance change methods. Rick has an awesome wife, three children in college, and boatload of student loan debt he still pays 15 years after his glory days as a student.
Meet Dave Stevens, the daring, well-grounded, and tech-savvy co-founder of Chartlytics. Dave has extensive experience with computer technology and many things we find in the land of the Internet. Dave worked as an independent consultant helping technology startups grow their businesses, chief architect of a .com company, and founded and sold his own service content management company. Dave spent many years and many dollars at The Pennsylvania State University majoring in computer science (and Rick suspects beer drinking). Dave has spent much of his professional career carefully navigating the emerging technologies of growth in our growing digital community. Dave’s computer science experience ranges from working with hedge funds to construction equipment companies. Dave, like Rick, also has an amazing wife, and three equally awesome children, one who just arrived on planet Earth within the current calendar year.

The Standard Celeration Society - Since 1990 the Standard Celeration Society (SCS) has comprised a collegial organization for all persons who use Standard Celeration Charts to monitor and change human behavior frequencies. The society’s heritage lies greatly in Precision Teaching and its founder Ogden R. Lindsley, who in 1972 (p. 9) named Precision Teaching because "what was really new in our procedure was precision, we decided to use that as an adjective in front of whatever it was one was doing: hence in our case, "precision teaching." Lindsley (1971) hoped that the standard recording and charting system would be used throughout the behavioral fields as Precision School Psychology, Precision Social Work (Green & Morrow, 1972), Precision Speech Therapy (Johnson, 1972), and so on.
