Inside Quizlet

A new milestone for Quizlet: 50 million monthly learners

News & Quizlet HQ ·

Quizlet's mission is to help students everywhere practice and master what they’re learning. When Quizlet started, the goal was to help a single student — our founder, Andrew Sutherland. Today, I’m pleased to say we are helping more than 50 million students per month.

The students on Quizlet are studying everything from basic Spanish to college-level organic chemistry to EMT certification test prep. They’re using Chromebooks in classrooms in Des Moines, Iowa, and studying on the bus with an Android phone in Sao Paolo, Brazil. Quizlet’s usage around the world is amazing to see and, at the same time, humbling for our team. For example, in the U.S., we’re used by 2 in 3 high school student and 1 in 2 college-age students.

Quizlet's Impact

We’re so proud to be helping over 50 million students study and learn each month, but we know that number only tells one part of our story. It tells of our scale, but not of our impact on the world. Reaching millions of students is half of our focus; the other half is making sure we’re helping them be successful and hit their learning goals. To help tell that part of our story, I’m excited that we are publishing our first ever Quizlet Impact Report. You can download it here or read it below.

Our report highlights a variety of ways Quizlet has impacted teachers and students around the world. In the report, you can read about how Quizlet helped two non-verbal students in Buda, Texas, gain new confidence in the classroom and eventually pass their district assessments with fantastic scores. You’ll be impressed with the work of 12-year-old Ananya Vinay, who beat out 11 million other contestants to win the 2017 Scripps National Spelling Bee — with the help of Quizlet. And, you can discover how Quizlet is aiding refugees in Austria to learn their new home’s native language.

We also share the results students are experiencing in reaching their goals. Of note:

  • More than 92% of students surveyed report that Quizlet helped them improve their test scores.
  • Three in four students say their overall grades improved after studying with Quizlet.
  • One reason for these results? 90% of students surveyed use Quizlet for more than one subject and 35% use it for five or more classes.

We are inspired to see that every day, new students start learning on Quizlet. From Argentina to Zimbabwe, people all over the world are empowering themselves to master their studies both inside and outside of the classroom. 50 million studiers a month is a great start, and it’s only the beginning.

    Congratulation on 50 million monthly students, Quizlet! I've been using this site since middle school and it has done wonders for me. This site does wonders for people who struggle in school and it is so great to see this website come this far. 2018 has been a good year for this site and I hope that it keeps getting better as we slowly inch closer to 2019. Great job, Quizlet! Keep up the good work! ;)

    This is so huge for you guys! Huge, huge congratulations! I've been using this site since about 2014, and my grades have gotten better ever since. I have to get in the right mindset when I'm using Quizlet, so that it's not just in one ear, out the other, but it's been so great! In the car waiting for my family to be done with an activity? Quizlet. In line at McDonalds and need something to do? Quizlet. On a long airplane ride and sitting there bored? Quizlet. In a long line at Disneyland, and I felt like I needed to be productive? You guessed it, Quizlet.

    This app has helped me so much, and I wanted to let you guys at the Quizlet HQ know that! And that not everyone just comments to say that they were 1900823.24th comment.

    50 million but you can't even add pictures to both sides of flash card? come on seriously..... you advertise people use quizlet to study organic chemistry, but its so restrictive and hard to make good chemistry flashcards when you can only add 1 picture to one side of the flash card. Organic chem is all about visualising chemical structure, and you can't portray this easily when you can only add WORDS to one side of the flashcard? im quizlet plus user for years and have been asking for years, but you never listen.
