What is this time saving phenomenon?
-These apps take the use of scan-trons to the next level. Grading with a camera gives you access to graded assignments within seconds with the use of technology already found in the classroom.
How does the process work?
-Each app requires a different set-up process, but all require an answer sheet, blank forms for students, and a scanning device.
Is it expensive?
-The apps are either free or very inexpensive.
How does it work?
-It works just like a scan-tron works. Each student has a number ID they bubble and then they bubble answers. Scanning takes place on your phone, tablet, or computer webcam.
What kind of camera?
-Depends on whatever is easier for you to use. With the use of the app you can scan using your phone's camera, a tablet's camera, or a webcam.
Does it generate a report?
-Yes. It gives individual reports for students and analyzes scores for the whole group.
How long does it take?
-The first time you use it, you must assign student ID numbers to students so that is a lengthy process, but after they have their student IDs then it doesn't take long to set up the assignment. It only takes a few seconds to scan each answer sheet.
