What is Gradecam? 

  • Gradecam is more than just a scantron replacement. It is more like a scantron upgrade. 

 

Why would i use Gradecam?

  • Gradecam allows you to grade your papers without having to wait to get to a scantron machine. 
  • Gradecam allows item analysis. You can tell how many kids missed each question and what answers they put. You can even analyse by standards to see which standards they're missing
  • Gradecam allows numerical answers. Students can bubble in their numerical answers (see the picture to the right and it will even allow for a range of answers to be considered correct.
  • Gradecam can grade by standards
  • Gradecam can share assignments across teachers so that a department could give a standard test
  • Students can login to the portal and see what they missed and the correct answers.
  • Automatically scan multiple versions.
  • Using Gradecam can save the school money. (each scantron form costs ~$0.14. So a class of 100 taking 20 tests a year costs $270.
