FETC News:Scan tests and speed grading process, online

Providing teachers with a way to conduct frequent assessments enables schools to ensure mastery of key skills long before standardized tests are taken. The new online version of GradeCam gives districts a tool for teachers to conduct assessments and to collect usable information in time to affect the learning in progress.

When a paper-based test is scanned by a document or web camera, GradeCam Online compresses the image and sends it to a server for analysis by its proprietary image recognition code. Item-by-item results are displayed immediately and stored for generating real-time reports, and any reports needed in the future. GradeCam Online also integrates with all electronic grade books.
