An Example: The Students App

The Students App helps all stakeholders gain the full picture of a student. It provides a centralized dashboard that combines data from student information systems, 3rd party assessment tools, and additional Abre Apps.

A central goal is for educators to understand their students quickly, effeciently, and with little fuss.
