About Us

Whereas most educational-technology companies focus on a particular product or market category, teacher-founded AcademicMerit focuses on solutions. That’s why, when we sought to tackle the long-unaddressed area of writing, we spent several years working with our early-adopters to hone a solution that ultimately integrates teacher professional learning, student assessment, and instructional content – not just one of these elements.

In the process, we pioneered competency-based professional learning – providing a long-overdue alternative to the workshop – and brought a practical, user-friendly model for the use of data to the contemporary classroom.

Deliberately placing our emphasis on best practice first – and cloud-based delivery of it second – has allowed us to build a pedagogical and technological platform that is now adaptable to any skill or subject area.
