Back in 2014 Edulastic launched at ISTE. Fast forward to now and here we are celebrating 5 years of Edulastic!  What a journey it’s been! When Edulastic launched into the EdTech scene, it was a modest platform with a new way to do assessment. Since then, Edulastic has grown to support both teachers and school leaders, educators across all 50 states and internationally, and our community of users is officially over 9 million! Since 2014, over 1 billion questions have been answered. That’s powerful!

While Edulastic has evolved in many ways, the core is still the same: we aim to help teachers evaluate and support student progress. With a robust platform and a variety of options for finding and developing assessment, Edulastic is a trusted tool in schools everywhere.

Edulastic has gotten where it is today not only by the dedicated engineers and team behind the product, but also by the incredible educators who believe in Edulastic. These educators include teachers, school leaders, consultants, customers, and the Edulastic Innovator Team who have continued to share their thoughts and suggestions with us. This feedback helps keep Edulastic on track to becoming even better year after year. We wouldn’t be who we are today without this dedicated community of support!

5 is a BIG milestone. We are so thrilled to be here that we want to make it a memorable year. We are celebrating our birthday in Philadelphia, and we are kicking off a contest with a BIG prize!
