Why did GoGuardian acquire Edulastic?
Our teams both believe that education is the most effective lever for transforming society, and together we can imagine a future where every student is ready and inspired to solve the world’s greatest challenges. We are inspired by this shared vision and are confident that you will see this relationship as a continuation of our commitment to serve educators and students.
This strategic acquisition brings Edulastic’s comprehensive, standards-aligned online assessments to GoGuardian’s award-winning suite of digital learning technologies like GoGuardian Teacher and Pear Deck. Combined with GoGuardian’s existing solutions, Edulstic’s best-in-class formative assessments further GoGuardian’s mission to create the ultimate learning platform.
