Can you believe it? We are swiftly approaching 4 Million students that have taken SmarterMeasure Learning Readiness Indicator. As of this morning, we are at 3,961,830 students. Do you remember when we celebrated hitting the 1 Millionth student? Let me refresh your memory…it was September of 2011. We ordered tshirts that said “I’m one in a MILLION” with the SmarterMeasure logo on it. It was a milestone and accomplishment for our company. It wasn’t just about the number though. We’d had a hand in helping improve success for 1,000,000 students across the country. Identifying their strengths and weaknesses, providing resources, support, and feedback, so they would be better prepared to complete their courses and obtain a degree. It was an exciting time. Then less than 2 years later, we reached 2 million students.
Here we are a few years later and the ticker continues to go up and up and up. The core of our company is comprised of people with the heart of educators. These “people” know that a moving ticker means one thing. STUDENTS are being empowered with knowledge about themselves and connected with valuable resources to support them in their success! We realize it’s not just a number. It is people making their educational dreams come true.
So WHEN will we reach 4 million students? To make things more interesting, we had all the team members enter their guess. The winner gets lunch! Stay tuned and we’ll let you know what happens! When is your guess?
