GradeCam Corporation has announced the new version of GradeCam Online, giving districts an easy-to-use, affordable tool for teachers to conduct daily, weekly and monthly assessments and to collect usable information in time to affect the learning in progress, according to the announcement.
When a paper-based test is scanned by a document or web camera, GradeCam Online compresses the image and sends it to a server for analysis by its proprietary advanced image recognition code. Item-by-item results are displayed immediately and stored for generating real-time reports, and any reports needed in the future. GradeCam Online also integrates with all electronic grade books.
GradeCam, when paired with an affordable web or document camera, allows classroom teachers to scan and grade multiple-choice tests and other assignments instantly. Regular assessments provide a framework for understanding each student's challenges and successes; the assessment data provided by GradeCam allows a teacher to tailor instruction to meet each student's learning needs.
GradeCam Online, the web-based version, also is designed to allow textbook publishers and content developers to integrate its technology into their offerings. For example, executives at Illuminate Education will be including GradeCam Online capability with their product offerings.
GradeCam Online is available at $1.50 per student per year.
