Our Story

GradeMaker is a young company, passionate about using technology to solve challenges. Our starting point was the belief that while exams should be demanding, making them shouldn’t be.

In 2014, we put together a dynamic team of exam and technology experts and challenged ourselves to deliver the best possible system to help exam setters globally. We wanted to create a tool that would really empower authoring teams to create the highest quality tests, work more efficiently and keep their content very secure.

Seven years in, we think we have the best tool anywhere, supporting innovative and secure approaches to test development. We now have customers around the world, large and small, and we continue to look for new ways to deliver more – helping to make the business of exam development better. And what’s more, along the way we’ve made it easier for authors to work remotely together – and helped organisations take their exams online.
