MasteryConnect, a Salt Lake City, UT-based edtech company, raised $4.5m in Series C funding.
Backers included Catamount Ventures, the Chan Zuckerberg Initiative, the Michael & Susan Dell Foundation, Pelion Ventures, and Trinity Ventures.
The company intends to use the funds to continue to develop the platform, strengthen its core assessment offering and provide new, in-demand features that enable teachers to measure student growth, drive performance-based assessment, and capture evidence of student learning.
Led by CEO Mick Hewitt, MasteryConnect is an assessment and curriculum platform focused on supporting educators as they drive student growth through formative assessment, interim-benchmark assessment, curriculum planning, and collaboration. Using the company’s tools, teachers can identify levels of student understanding in the moment through a variety of assessments, so they can target students for immediate intervention and use data to evaluate their own practice.
The company, which now serves over 2.5 million teachers and 21 million students around the world, recently released mobile evidence capture for performance-based assessment, full support of the LTI integration standard, and the PRO version of its Socrative app.
