Tests, assessments, quizzes and other ways to assess students determine the understanding of subject from students’ perspective.
The more educators get to check the understanding level of students, the better they can deliver the education students need. Unfortunately, time consumed to correct all the assessment of class shortens the time and teachers may fall short of time leading to fallback in the number of assessments that could have been done.
One quick solution to this can be the cool tool “Quick Key”. Meant for grading, educators will find this tool very handy as it eliminates hand-grading of quizzes, tests, and formative assessments, even for teachers working in paper-based classrooms, without a computer. With Quick Key, you can spend your time addressing the different learning needs of your students, not messing around with grades and grade books.
Quick Key is easy to use, and doesn’t require you to change anything about how you teach. Quick Key turns your phone into an optical scanner to grade quizzes, tests, and surveys on paper, up to 30 questions long. Then, Quick Key allows you to run analytics right on your phone, and then upload the data to your electronic grade book.
The solution is available for educators and schools.
