Bangalore-based assessment conduct and reporting platform Learning Outcomes has been acquired by Liga Edutech for an undisclosed amount. Learning Outcomes was cofounded by Rishi Kar (IIT-Madras) and Aditya Kulkarni (Bits-Pilani & IIM-Bangalore) in 2011. The startup, backed by Morpheus Accelerator had raised seed funding from Aakrit Vaish (co-founder of Haptik), Miten Sampat (Times Internet).
Learning Outcomes has built an assessment conduct and reporting platform on tablets to help institutes successfully gauge and improve their students’ learning process. It captures granular data from routine school assessments and then analyses it to present the story behind the grade.
Instead of reporting students’ grade, they focus on highlighting the skills developed in that subject, personalizing the concept pathway for the child and helping the child focus on the areas where he/she can improve the most. The startup aims to create a better assessments in schools, and ensure that parents, students and teachers understand and become more aware of the learning process.
In 2013, it had launched its own online diagnostic content that is built from the ground up by analyzing the misconceptions and teaching gaps captured by the system. The assessments has in-built remedial content and can identify accurately the exact gap in the thinking process if the student’s answer is wrong. This has been especially successful for standard III to VIII, as per the company.
The startup has worked with over 35 schools across Seven cities and charged an annual subscription fee per student which is inclusive of cost for hardware and software.
