How to Create Worksheets You Can Grade With Your Phone (Or Any Device)

Teachers work hard to create worksheets customized for their students and now can save time by grading them with a phone, iPad, document camera, or any other device.

GradeCam empowers teachers to quickly and easily customize, score, and record assessments – without special forms, equipment or buy in. You create your own tests or quizzes with our online software and print on plain paper. You can grade the assessments in an instant by scanning them with any web camera, iPhone or Android device. Then, you have all the data at your fingertips. You can view detailed reports of class or student progress, and transfer scores instantly to any electronic gradebook.

 

Worksheets That Scan

When you create your own worksheets in Word or Google Documents, you can embed a Gradecam scan form to save time and paper!

You can save your scan form as a PNG file. Similar to a .jpg file, a .png file is a picture or image of your scan form that can then be placed in your worksheet document.

3. Insert form into your worksheet

The PNG file acts just like any picture or image file. You can then insert this file into your document.

For example, in a Google document, you can drag and drop your image right into the document. Or, select Image under the Insert tab to upload your PNG file.
