Content/Features: A Quick Start Guide provides the user with the ability to create a class, build a quiz, upload student papers, grade student work, and analyze results for reteaching.
The iPhone app allows the user to snap pictures of assessments and upload the scans into the Gradeable system.
Scans and uploads can be completed in two ways—through a document feeder or a mobile app.
A grading editor window provides access to scores; a no credit option; grading of multiple students on the same question; an annotation tool box; a “comment” feature; and pen tool for adding underlining, check marks, symbols, and star stickers.
When building the test, the user decides how much each question is worth. Rubrics and answer keys can be created. Open-response questions are viewed in the grading editor.
A quick response code is a bar code that contains information and organizes each class. It is assessment-specific and is not tied to a particular student.
Scoring results can be printed and returned to students. Results can be presented as summary feedback, listing incorrect answers and individual comments, or as an annotated copy with mark-ups and scoring included. Content/Features Rating: A

Recommendation: Gradeable makes grading papers faster and more precise. Student papers can be graded anywhere, anytime as long as there is internet access. Multiple-choice questions are automatically scored, providing fast student feedback. I like having the ability to track student progress. Student work can be stored for inclusion in a paper or digital portfolio. Student grades that are exported in Excel can then be placed in a teacher gradebook.
The program supports all types of assessments, including multiple-choice, response, graphs, charts, images, and more. I like the flexibility of the program, which gives the user the option of deciding how many points a question should be worth. The teacher receives immediate feedback on each student’s progress, enabling the teacher to analyze student results.
Students also have the ability to email completed digital assessments or scan their paper assessments using a printer/scanner or the iPhone app. Gradeable eliminates the piles of papers that accumulate and definitely speeds up the time it takes for students to receive feedback on their results. This is one program that a teacher shouldn’t be without. Highly Recommended
