This extension will help connect multiple platforms teaches need to use to properly educate and engage with different students and cascade information into a single dashboard.

TEACHER TOOL & RESOURCE

The teacher dashboard helps bridge the gap between student performance and required action items. This saves time and keeps all information in one place. 

Using the Treehouse dashboard, teachers can save up to 90 minutes per week.
