Why Crowdmark?

Crowdmark is a grading and assessment solution that enables educators to grade paper-based and digital exams and assignments 3× faster than traditional workflows while leaving richer feedback for students.

Why is Crowdmark different from my LMS assessment tools?

Crowdmark's signature grading tools are designed to facilitate grading as part of the ongoing dialogue between students and instructors. Grading teams can work seamlessly and collaboratively within the digital grading suite, streamlining instructor oversight and providing the ultimate consistency in grading. Our fully-Markdown- and LaTeX-friendly Comment library allows you to retain commonly-used feedback, calculate scores automatically and provide your students with additional resources. Best of all, you never have to change comments manually - editing it once makes a change across the entire assessment.

Does Crowdmark work with my LMS?

Crowdmark is able to integrate directly with learning management systems to provide student roster and grade sync with Canvas, Brightspace/D2L, Moodle, Blackboard and Sakai. For other LMS inquiries, please contact support@crowdmark.com.

Does Crowdmark work with accessibility tools?

Crowdmark is WCAG 2.0 compatible with small exceptions that do not affect usability. For full details on accessbility, including our VPAT, please contact sales@crowdmark.com.

Can I use Crowdmark for multiple choice bubble sheets?

Yes! Crowdmark offers fully auto-graded multiple choice options for both in-person and digital assessments. Our Multiple choice analytics provide in-depth analysis of student responses along with difficulty, discrimination and distractors, to help enhance the quality of your multiple choice assessments. For a demonstration of Crowdmark's multiple choice assessment workflow, please fill out this form and our Sales team will be in touch.

Do I or my students need special equipment to use Crowdmark?

Crowdmark is a browser-based application that's accessible anywhere, from any device with an internet connection. Digital grading and assessments are completed fully online, even when students are submitting handwritten work. In-person assessments require high-volume printing and scanning.
