Our History

In 1995, a group of talented educators and information technologists at the Communications Research Centre in Ottawa, Canada developed the first web-based ePortfolio, assessment and reporting tool. We were, at that point, the only company operating in the integrated field of web-based learner assessment and multi-level analytics.

Countless hours of development and innovation has resulted in the Chalk & Wire ePortfolio and Assessment Platform. It has been successfully used at hundreds of academic and organizational institutions all over the world. We continue to lead the industry in the development of elegant, transparently applied tools and workflows that enable best-practice assessment of outcomes and competencies.

Chalk and Wire provided us with a System Analysis Report (SAR) and follow-up meetings that helped us use our assessment tools more wisely.
