The ProblemTo create useful quizzes and assessments for students exploring their options.Current assessments and quizzes are more geared towards novelty than practicality. Aptitude tests require at least an hour to take and often result in generic answers.Quiz builders are limited in their feature sets for the special criteria we needed.

SolutionSince we gather pretty extensive profile information on signup we can ask a set of fewer questions in a simple format to make the process much shorter and more valuable to students.Backend for building quizzes with the ability to provide different weights for outcomes.

The ProblemTo create a seamless and tangible scholarship application and submission process.Current scholarship sites are often riddled with spam and take a long time to signup. Plexuss was not offering scholarships at this time either.

SolutionMonthly recurring essay prompt based scholarships offered in a variety of categories so anyone could apply. A contained experience where students only need to have their profile completed once and can apply to as many scholarships as they please.Backend and CMS for on the fly reviewing and creation of new scholarship categories and scholarship details.

ProcessPrior to the conception of this idea we knew we wanted to offer scholarships but did not know exactly how to offer them. So we started with some research of current scholarship sites and experiences.User
