NEW YORK, NY (July 5, 2016) –DigiExam, the leading provider of digital tools to administer and grade academic tests, today announced that five more K-12 level schools in the United States and Canada have partnered with DigiExam to administer efficient, secure classroom testing. The North American schools are part of DigiExam’s rapid expansion and adaptation which has surpassed 100 new schools in the past three months.

The newly announced schools to sign on as paying partners in the DigiExam testing platform in the US and Canada are:

  • Crystal Springs Uplands School in Hillsborough, California

“DigiExam is a very exciting tool for our students and teachers as we continue to see it's use grow,” said Nick Anastos, Director of IT at the Dwight School. “It enables the school to further leverage our 1:1 laptop program while providing a secure and reliable digital test taking environment without additional dedicated hardware or hours of IT preparation.”

DigiExam CEO and cofounder, Johan Hägglund, was frustrated and performing poorly on handwritten long exams during business school so he created DigiExam while studying at University Stockholm School of Economics, which became the company’s first customer. Officially launched in 2014 with headquarters in Stockholm, DigiExam has grown ten-fold in teacher and institutional adoption in the last 10 months and has a 100% retention rate with users who pay for advanced features. DigiExam already serves over 1,100 schools across 50 countries.

Unique to the industry, DigiExam is an intuitive and easy product for teachers and differentiates itself from the competition by being: - The DigiExam platform works online and offline where all data is continuously saved to avoid any form of data loss.

  • 100% Reliable
  • Anonymous - The DigiExam platform keeps student responses anonymous, eliminating any possibility of teacher or grading bias
  • Collaborative - DigiExam allows teachers to co-create and co-grade exams.

“Secure, efficient, and reliable digital testing is the best possible option for schools because it helps teachers and students and saves money,” said Hägglund. “We’re delighted by our early growth in North America and are looking forward to helping even more schools improve their testing systems and help their teachers.”

Cincinnati, Ohio (June 7, 2016) ­– From a safety perspective, South African schools are in crisis, overrun with violence, physical and sexual abuse, and gang-related activities.

In addition, 1.46 million students reported being threatened with violence and teachers and staff members are not immune from violence during the school day either.
