Education technology company Lead School has acquired student assessment and practice startup QuizNext for an undisclosed amount as it looks to bring new features to its platform that is targeted at affordable private schools.
The acquisition will allow Lead School to offer schools a gamified assessment and practice platform to their students, tying in with the companyâs promise to help schools to monitor and improve learning outcomes using technology.
âLead School is committed to providing complete, seamless schooling irrespective of whether schools are physically open or shut. Integration of QuizNext into our platform is another step in this direction,â said Smita Deorah, cofounder and COO at Lead School.
In August, Lead School had raised $ 28 million in Series C funding led by WestBridge Capital, along with participation from its existing investor Elevar Equity.
âWe look forward to joining hands with LEAD School and fulfilling our vision of making learning engaging and effective. With an integrated system like LEAD, Quiznext can become more effective in serving studentsâ practice needs,â said Guruprasad Holla, cofounder and CEO at QuizNext.
Lead School has developed its own high-quality learning content for students, teaching resources for teachers, technology integrations for schools to monitor the performance of students and a platform where parents can monitor their child’s academic performance.
The company sells this as an integrated solution to schools, especially affordable private schools in small towns, with 80% of its customers coming from Tier II, III and IV cities across India. It claims its platform is used by over 4 lakh students and 16,000 teachers at over a 1,000 partner schools across the country.
