ZipGrade is an iPhone grading app that let’s teachers grade papers before students even leave the classroom. It is being used to grade over 25,000 papers a week (10/15).
Quick, Accurate, and Organized
ZipGrade knows when a paper is in focus and ready to be graded. The phone will vibrate when an image is acquired to let you know it’s ready to scan another. Scan, grade, and organize up to 20 tests a minute!
By grading papers quickly where ever you may be, we hope to make gathering data from assessments and quizzes as efficient as possible. The hope is to free up time for additional lessons and to be able to make your curriculum more focused. Understand incoming knowledge deficiencies, break the class into functional learning groups, and assess as frequently as you see fit with minimal pain. Overall, “Teach more. Grade less.”
ZipGrade is free to download and use 100 times. The full version can be had for the price of a cup of coffee. And answer sheets are free to download form the website. There is no more cost effective way to grade multiple-choice quizzes as quickly and accurately.
With multiple answer sheets sizes and forms, ZipGrade can be used for everyday exit tickets, weekly quizzes, or longer exams. The answer sheets are also licensed via Creative Commons (BY-NC/3.0) which means you are allowed to customize, update, and distribute to others. Many teachers have already done this to meet specific needs in their classroom.
