Always Prepped is tackling the big data problem in education by aggregating and analyzing the most important elements of a student's classroom performance on a single dashboard.
We provide a free tool for teachers to connect existing web based accounts such as Khan Academy, Engrade and others in to one centralized location.
AlwaysPrepped is built by a small team in Bethesda, Maryland. We strive to build a product and a company that teachers love. We are obsessed with data and have a penchant for simple design. If you are interested in joining us, check out our careers!
