Ratings and Reviews

A good app so far

I just bought this app to streamline the process of marking essays. It's early days and I am still figuring out the interface.

It is relatively logical and seems to be well ordered but in the Edit screen it seems that every time you make a change to a category you have to SAVE otherwise if you move to another category it loses and changes you have made. And then hitting SAVE gets you a restart for changes to take effect and the app closes.

This will make customisation a very lengthy and somewhat frustrating process as there are so many fields to navigate and change. There should be a save progress button because I can see that this will cause a lot of angst, especially in the early stages of setting up your fields.

If this was seen to by the developer, I would definitely rate the app higher.

Excellent app

As an academic I have found this app to be incredibly useful. It speeds up the process of commenting on essays dramatically, the students love the depth of comments they are receiving and the addition of the new edit mode is exactly what I had been hoping for, making the app much more customizable. I have been using this app for sometime now and wouldn't mark without it.

Streamlining feedback

Great app that contains copious amounts of feedback to choose from. The feedback also serves as a guide for all the essay features and potential errors to look out for.
