Re-imagining formative assessment for early education

Every child develops differently.

Using an Android tablet synced to the cloud, we track the developmental progress of young children and help teachers identify which children need help in which learning areas. Our initial focus is on mathematics and executive function skills.

Easy and Affordable

An assessment tool is only a “tool” if teachers actually use it. Unfortunately, teachers all too often avoid using traditional assessment instruments because of concerns around the cost and hassle of hiring third party assessors.
With Trackosaurus, there are no assessors! Instead, children self-assess by playing games that require little to no adult supervision. This innovative approach is fueled by a combination of behavioral insights and light machine learning.
The net result is that teachers receive reliable, real-time information on how each child is progressing across a range of developmental skills, without having to sacrifice valuable class time.
