Sometimes the Best Answers are the Simplest

Here at GradeCam, we are always working on new and innovative ways to be responsive to the needs of our teachers and empower them to be more efficient and effective with the methods they already use in their classrooms.

At last year’s International Society for Technology in Education (ISTE) conference, for instance, we introduced a revolutionary feature that could scan and score handwritten numeric answers with remarkable accuracy. No bubbles required!

This year, we’re expanding those capabilities even further to include handwritten letters and words up to twenty characters in length. Yes, you read that correctly. GradeCam can now read and grade number, letter, and word responses that have simply been written out by hand. This remarkable functionality makes an array of assessment types possible – short answers, fill-in-the-blank, and more — it simplifies the grading process by leaps and bounds.

Current GradeCam users will soon be able to subscribe to the new handwritten question type as an add-on to their School/District GradeCam Go! license. As always, this new feature will not require any special equipment or forms to use.
