POP QUIZIZZ: It may not be the easiest name to spell, but investors likely got the spelling on the check right. Quizizz, a Santa Monica, Calif.-based startup that offers tools for teachers to make, well, quizzes, has raised $3 million in a seed round led by Nexus Venture Partners. The company, which also operates in India, has raised a total of $3.5 million in venture capital.

Founded in 2015, the company lets teachers create, distribute and share quizzes that incorporate game design and gamification mechanics.
