We are excited to announce that Crowdmark has moved out of beta today. Crowdmark helps educators, working alone or in teams, to evaluate and respond to student work better. Crowdmarking provides a cloud-based workflow that makes grading faster, more reliable, and easily referenced in communications among students and educators. Here are some of the features:
- Cloud grading: Grade anytime and anywhere using a tablet or laptop.
- Exam navigation: The ability to jump between questions and students and skip to unmarked exams eliminates the paper cuts and inefficient staple-folds and booklet-shuffles of pen-on-paper grading.
- Referenceable archive: Instructors and students have immediate access to grades and feedback all the time, making it easy to anchor learning conversations around student work.
- Team management: Crowdmark streamlines the organization of large exams and marking teams to facilitate online collaborative grading.
Your feedback improved Crowdmark
We thank our early users for helping us improve Crowdmark. Valuable feedback from these crowdmarking pioneers led to the following improvements:
- A4 paper support: Crowdmark accommodates users worldwide with 8.5″ x 11″ and A4 paper support.
- Paper-cloud synchrony: Exam numbering makes it easy to synchronize the digital and paper page collections.
- Mathematical expressions: Instructors can express themselves using TeX and MathJax.
Testimony from crowdmarkers
Our happy users have expressed how much they like Crowdmark. Here are some of their comments:
“Crowdmark was nothing short of excellent! It worked flawlessly, everytime I logged on.”
“(With Crowdmark)…the potential cost savings for our provincial government would run into the millions of dollars…. Any organization would be foolish to not look seriously at a faster, more effective technology, that could save them millions.”
“It’s way faster than shuffling papers. I didn’t need to tidy up my work area to do the marking. With paper exams, there is always an “organizing” time required just to get started.“
”…the grid format is truly awesome.“
“I really appreciate Crowdmark…far more convenient than marking thousands of paper exams…thank you for your work.”
This is just the beginning
Crowdmark lets educators assemble in teams and work together to help classes of students learn. We are just getting started!
