Crowdmark: Humans Grading Humans, Efficiently

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Crowdmark is a platform for organizing and grading student work. It is not automated grading; humans grade humans. However, it saves a ton of time (homework grading takes TAs less than half as long as usual) and allows for more feedback. Scores are added automatically; students see graded work fast; and there are no more bogus regrade requests. Furthermore, this requires no change in the format of how you ask questions. Whether on exams or on problem sets, students still use paper and pencil to provide their answers. In short, Crowdmark eliminates much of the drudgery of grading without handing anything important over to mindless robots. In this session, you will have the opportunity to submit an assignment as if you were a student; turn around and grade the assignment as if you were an instructor; and look at your graded work, all in under 25 minutes. (Grades will not be curved, but do not expect an easy A!)
