Naiku means “teacher” in Lao.
At Naiku, our mission is to positively impact education. We believe that all students deserve the opportunity to reach their full potential. When teachers understand the needs of individual students and students are engaged in their own learning, the results are higher achievement for everyone. That is why we have built the next generation learning and assessment platform for teachers and students. We believe that better assessment leads to better learning. Let us show you how.
