the Prestigious 2016 Tyton Growth50 List

Questar Assessment recognized as a top 50 growth-stage
company in education sector achieving impact at scale


Location: Minneapolis, MN

Date: September 7, 2016

Questar Assessment Inc., a K–12 assessment solutions provider focused on building a bridge between learning and accountability, has been recognized as a 2016 Tyton Growth50 company. The Tyton Growth50 celebrates innovative organizations achieving impact at scale through a combination of strong financial performance; market awareness and adoption; and demonstrated customer outcomes across the preK–12, postsecondary, corporate training, and consumer education markets. As one of 50 organizations selected this year, this achievement marks a significant milestone in Questar’s evolution.

“During a year of unprecedented company growth, the Questar team did an amazing job to support existing customers while launching several new statewide assessment programs without compromising the high-touch, high-trust level of service for which we’re known. We are honored that those efforts earned us a spot on the Tyton Growth50,” said Jamie Post Candee, President and Chief Executive Officer of Questar Assessment Inc. “What makes this award especially meaningful is that the attributes Tyton uses to evaluate companies — financial sustainability, market awareness, customer engagement, and learner/stakeholder impact — are the ones we use as a measuring stick for our own success.”

Each year, experts on the Tyton Partners team review nominated companies in the space, evaluating each against the Tyton Growth Framework to narrow the field. That analysis is used to select the 50 companies that best exemplify the impact, engagement, awareness, and sustainability necessary to have lasting impact.
