Turnitin acquires assessment platform ExamSoft

Turnitin, a provider of academic integrity and assessment solutions, has recently acquired ExamSoft, a software-based assessment platform based in Dallas, Texas, from Spectrum Equity. “By joining forces, Turnitin and ExamSoft become a single destination for institutions to uphold integrity at every stage in a student’s journey, from book reports and problem sets to high-stakes exams and professional licensure,” said a statement of the company.

Turnitin has been building and broadening its assessment capabilities since its 2018 acquisition of Gradescope, an assessment platform that streamlines grading workflows across a range of assignment types and subject areas. ExamSoft further expands Turnitin’s portfolio of leading academic integrity and assessment products to include a broad assessment platform serving education, certification, and licensure programs. Together they will offer institutions further flexibility when delivering assessments at all educational and professional levels.

“Turnitin and ExamSoft are both committed to safeguarding integrity in education,” said ExamSoft CEO Sebastian Vos. “We look forward to working with the Turnitin team to continue to advance integrity solutions across all levels and modalities of education to improve learning outcomes. We would also like to thank Spectrum Equity for their support and partnership over the past six years.”

Spectrum Equity Managing Director Steve LeSieur said, “We are confident that together, ExamSoft and Turnitin will continue to make a meaningful impact in improving outcomes in education. We wish ExamSoft continued success as part of Turnitin.”
