ZipGrade: A Best App for Grading
Summary : Grading Made Instant!
ZipGrade is designed to assist users with grading multiple-choice quizzes. To begin, users must choose to create an account or continue without creating an account. Next, users can create a class, add students, or begin grading quizzes. To create a class, users must tap the “Classes” button on the bottom of the screen, and then tap the “New” button on the top right of the next screen. Here, they will be able to add a new class name. To add students, users must tap the “Students” button on the bottom of the screen, and then tap the “New” button on the top right of the next screen. Here, they will be able to add students and enroll them in an already-created class. To grade papers with ZipGrade, users must tap the “Quizzes” button on the bottom of the screen and then tap the “Create New Quiz” button. Next, users must select the 20-, 50-, or 100-question answer sheet. On the next screen, users can tap the “Edit Key” button to enter in their answer key. At this point, users should visit https://www.zipgrade.com/forms/ to download the corresponding answer sheet and have students use them to record their responses to questions. To grade student work, users must tap the “Scan Papers” option. When scanning answer sheets, users need to ensure that their iPad’s camera and answer sheet are correctly lined up. After all answer sheets are scanned, users can see the results by tapping the “Review Papers” and/or “Item Analysis” options, which are available under the “Quizzes” option.
Please note: Users are only able to use ZipGrade for a limited time before being required to subscribe.
