Education Innovation

We at NEEF believe that the education standards need to be raised across the country for better economic growth in the country. We aim to integrate innovative and effective ideas in the Education System with cutting edge technology to ensure merit and transparency.

NEEF believes that the existing Education System not only needs new ideas and inventions that shatter the performance expectations of today's status quo; to make a meaningful impact, these new solutions must also "scale", that is grow large enough, to serve millions of students and teachers.  NEEF has taken first steps to this ideology in form of a Degree Review Examination that shall ensure transparency and equal opportunity.

Assessment Solutions are where the integration of our expertise in Education and Assessment comes in.

We are also working on enabling distance-based marking of assessments through IT solutions.

We provide the information required to assess the quality of the activity implementation and measure the development results.
