Empowered Teachers are Reclaiming Their Time and Rediscovering Their Freedom

There’s simply no denying that the demands placed on teachers continue to steadily increase. From standards and reporting to accountability, what once was all in a day’s work has become all consuming. Lunches. Nights. Weekends. Holidays. Even the hardest working and most experienced teachers struggle just to stay on task and on target while trying to meet so many competing expectations.

Fortunately, teachers have found an easier way. GradeCam, an education solution created by teachers, for teachers, simplifies and streamlines every step of the assessment process. It enables teachers to create and customize their own forms, scan and score answer sheets for immediate feedback, analyze and share information with their peers and administrators, and automatically record grades with the touch of a button.

And this added ease and efficiency does more than just save valuable time. It also empowers teachers with individual and cumulative data across categories like question, score, student, class, and existing or custom standards. This puts actionable data in the hands of teachers right when re-teaching can be most impactful. In other words, GradeCam supports teachers inside their classroom and helps them have a life outside of it, too.

Perhaps the most surprising part is that GradeCam does all this without requiring any special software, equipment, or forms. Teachers simply print on regular blank paper; scan and score with their own computer, tablet, smart phone, or document camera; and transfer into whatever digital gradebook they already use—including Excel.

Assessment forms are completely customizable for any grade level or subject matter, with answer options including multiple choice, true/false, number grids, rubrics, credit assignments, and more. GradeCam also offers a handwritten numeric question type that literally reads and scores number answers—like 3.14, 1776, or 867-5309. And the form options are flexible enough to incorporate as form code identifiers on regular assessments, embed into existing worksheets, or print as multiples on a page. They can even be laminated and re-used.

The answer has been there all along. Teachers don’t need to work harder. Or longer hours. They simply needed the tools to work smarter.
