The funding news comes on the heels of new MasteryConnect feature releases, including mobile evidence capture for performance-based assessment, full support of the LTI integration standard, and the PRO version of the wildly popular app Socrative. It also follows MasteryConnect’s announcement that the company is poised to achieve profitability in 2017, ensuring long-lasting stability and further enhancement for the growing community of educators it serves.
Millions of teachers already use MasteryConnect for access to real-time data around student learning so they can inform instruction for better student outcomes.

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. We enable teachers to 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. We now serve over 2.5 million teachers and 21 million students around the world.
