Lecticalive for schools

Optimal learning for every student

In Beta! Contact us if you would like to participate.

If you are a K-12 school leader or a curriculum decision-maker, the school pages are for you. Here, you'll find information about Lectica, its mission, our first electronically scored Lectical Assessment—the LRJA—and our low-cost subscription service for public and nonprofit schools.

Current offerings

In August of 2019, we began Beta testing the platform that delivers Lecticalive for Schools in both K-12 and College contexts. We'd like to expand to additional testing contexts during 2020. If you are interested in participating, please contact us.

Lectica, Inc. is a 501(c)(3) charitable corporation. Its mission is to build and deliver learning tools that help optimize learning while supporting the growth of skills for thinking, learning, and relating. These learning tools are backed by a strong learning model—the Virtuous Cycle of Learning (VCoL+7™)—and a comprehensive vision for educational testing and learning, in which assessment exists to serve optimal learning. You can learn more about this vision in our white paper—Virtuous cycles of learning: Redesigning testing during the digital revolution

We have spent decades developing our methods and the technology required to deliver our learning tools—known as Lectical™ Assessments or DiscoTests®—at scale. These assessments are backed by a large body of research, including ongoing investigations of their validity and reliability. Here are some links to research reports:
