Abilene Christian was looking for an easier way to take attendance so that their staff could focus more on their students and their areas of expertise. After the first full year on the platform we received word that their students set records for their academic performance. Read the full testimonial below:
SpotterEDU has changed the culture and trajectory of our program. We’ve been using SpotterEDU for two years, and we’ve seen a direct correlation between our student-athletes attending class and their GPA. The app increased staff efficiency as we were able to know when a kid was present, late, or absent for class. We then had a laser focus on our players who were struggling to make it to the classroom, as SpotterEDU provided data we were unable to accurately track prior.
I’m proud to say with the assistance of SpotterEDU, we reached the highest GPA ranking in consecutive semesters, hitting a 2.98 GPA mark in the fall, followed by a 3.01 this past spring. In addition, we received the Southland Conference most improved APR award due to our academic success. 51 of our athletes were on the Southland Conference’s Commissioner's Honor Roll for placing a GPA above a 3.0! The platform has given our staff a renewed energy, as we have seen more athletes stay eligible and on track to graduate. The high rankings and awards would not have been possible without the assistance of SpotterEDU. The platform and their staff proved to be easily accessible for both the players and coaches. Not only is it ease to use and efficient for athletics, it’s proven efficient across academia in general.”
