  Sikshana Foundation

The Sikshana Foundation is supporting over 50 thousand schools in India with their programs, as part of this they use SDAPS in their infrastructure. In addition to this work, they are also cooperating with the Karnataka state Government on a State Achievement Survey (SAS) which has been run twice as of 2019. This unique data collection effort was powered by SDAPS at its core. In 2018, 4.2 million students from grade 4 to 10 were assessed for their performance in different subjects. Using this information, the Sikshana Foundation was able to send colorful motivating report cards with feedback to each individual student. In addition to this the collaboration resulted in valuable data for the Government of Karnataka to improve the quality of education in the future. For their collaboration with the Karnataka Government the Sikshana Foundation has been recognized as the “IT Backbone to Edu Dept”.

After working with Benjamin on some changes we needed for our project, we deployed to production.
