HAVE YOU GUYS HEARD ABOUT THE SPEEDGRADER APP FOR IPAD YET?
IF NOT, LET ME TELL YOU ABOUT HOW THIS WONDERFUL PROGRAM CAN HELP MAKE YOUR GRADING LIFE EASIER.
First, you log in to your Canvas account. Then, it gives you a view of all your current classes. From a computer, whatever you have in your dropdown “Courses” menu will show up as notebooks.
You will notice that anything that has things to be graded will have a little red flag on it with how many items that need grading. Once you click on a notebook, you get a list of assignments that need grading.
Then, you can go student-by-student and grade their items. But wait…there’s one more amazing thing.
You can easily reply with a video comment. Or, if you don’t want to send your students an image of you, you can use the talk-to-text button in your keyboard to dictate your message to the student.
Mind just blown on how easy and quick grading can be with this tremendous app.
I have to tell you that I was so excited to find this that I stayed up late grading in bed. The interface is so easy and even tells me when I have things I need to grade. I’m sold.
