In my search for inspiration from projects and startups that do some sort of edTech related apps and webservice I stumbled upon Smarterer. Smarterer scores and validates digital, social, and technical skills, using crowd-sourced test design and an adaptive scoring algorithm similar to the one used to rank chess masters. You can contribute by creating tests of your own.
The picture above shows how a test provides feedback with points for how many correct answers you have.
Some of the things I like:
- Easy to use
- Nice look and feel
- Good embed features
- Offers API
Pluralsight Acquired Smarterer for $75M in november 2014 so one would have to rate this as a promising Tech-startup.
PS! You have to logg on to Smarterer if you want to take my test. You can sign up for free at www.smarterer.com.
