Minneapolis, MN, February 20, 2012 - Naiku, a leader of cloud-based balanced assessment software K-12 education announced version 2.0 of the award-winning Naiku Platform.  Naiku is a best-in-class SaaS platform that enables teachers to make "real-time" instructional decisions to improve student achievement.  Version 2.0 is available for immediate use and requires absolutely zero "app deployment" to get started.

* In-browser "what you see is what you get" (WYSIWYG) math formula creation

"I'm excited to announce version 2.0 and further build on our leadership in the mobile assessment space," said Corey Thompson, CEO of Naiku. "The market reaction has been so positive ... our marketing and development teams just keep delivering the features our customers are requesting."

As technology becomes more affordable and ubiquitous, many schools across the United States have started a "one student-to-device" (1:1) or Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) program.  As these programs spread, it is critical that these devices are used to improve instruction and increase student achievement. Our mission is to work with schools to make these initiatives wildly successful.
