Product/Service Summary

Measure is a mobile test-prep app that aims to answer the one basic and recurring question every student has - what must I do to improve?

Measure ascertains a student's grasp of the subject by testing his ability to spot mistakes (if any) in the steps leading up to the answer. The core insight is simple. To spot a mistake, one must know something first. Conversely, the inability to spot a mistake suggests a gap in knowledge.

And so, by looking at how the student treads the path from problem statement to final answer, Measure builds a complete and comprehensive picture of the student's abilities in the subject and of the gaps that must be addressed.

Measure is the result of our experience grading thousands of Math assignments of Class XI students. We noticed (while grading) that behind every incorrect answer was a single root-cause issue in the student's understanding. The key to arriving at the right answer - and hence improving - lay therefore in addressing this root-cause issue
