Quick Key eliminates hand-grading of quizzes, tests, and formative assessments, even for teachers working in paper-based classrooms, without a computer...and even without a network connection of any kind.
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. But you might, once you discover what you and your students can accomplish when assessment is effortless!
What does Quick Key do?
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, then upload the data to your electronic grade book.
What's New in Version 0.4.4
-Fix crash during quiz scanning in tutorial mode
-Fix data synchronization issues for quizzes created when application is not connected to the internet
Far Better Than ZipGrade!
Quick Key is far better than any other grading apps like ZipGrade! One of the biggest problems I have with ZipGrade is that each answer sheet is a full page, Quick Key on the other hand can fit two per sheet so you can do a full class with half the paper! Not to mention that Quick Key's answer sheets have the students name and ID already printed on it so the student doesn't have to remember another number just for tests. Quick Key also uses a unique cloud system that can be used without Internet so that's a big plus too! For anyone looking for an inexpensive fast and easy way to grade tests I would strongly recommend Quick Key!
Like an answered prayer!
As a former ZipGrade user, I must say Quick Key gets it right! With Quick Key I did not have to find just the right light, the answer sheet did not have to be printed (could be photo copied) and scanning was very reliable. Also, the itemization exports I get from Quick Key are spot on. It's worth every penny!
The kicker, is that I press one button and send my grades into my Gradebook. NO MORE STAYING LATE THE NIGHT BEFORE GRADES ARE DUE!!! Whoohooo!!
I would have given it 5 stars if they allowed you to make exams for more than 30 questions.. 30 questions is the max number per quiz at the moment. They will be fixing it and adding support for that soon though.
