As you’re headed back to school this year you may want to check out ZipGrade. It’s a great product for teachers who are tired of grading multiple choice tests by hand or waiting their turn to feed each student’s answer sheet through a Scantron machine. This provides answer sheet templates (20, 50, or 100 questions) that you can print out and distribute to students with their next exam. After they finish their test you’ll input the correct answers into the app and scan each sheet using the camera on your iPhone or iPad – You don’t need an Internet connection to scan the tests. Not only will you see how each individual student performed but you’ll have the ability to view an item analysis report with class data.
ZipGrade lets teachers export CSV and PDF versions of each report to their email, Dropbox, and Google Drive. It’s completely free to try, with a 100 scan limit to their demo. After that ZipGrade is $1.99 for 2 months or $6.99 a year. Download the app or visit the website to learn more.
The Android version of ZipGrade is coming soon!
