I wish I had this ten years ago! A technical tour de force, unfortunately for the last decade’s curriculum. This is a great way to score multiple choice and is ok for rubric scored items. It was most relevant for secondary application where teachers were not concerned with “tagging” individual standards for mastery. As common core is implemented with a greater focus on these standards, and an increased number of math sections converting to integrated math, this will be a big limitation.
At the elementary level, It has lost relevance because it does not have the common core standards pre-uploaded so you have to manually input them, then associate the manually written standards with each test item one by one on your cell phone, a colossal task. Corrections to the standards database that you have entered manually are not easily accomplished: you have to erase the standard, re-input it, then re-associate the standard with each test item it was previously associated with. In schools where report cards are written to individual standard mastery, this is a big liability.
In the future, the inability to capture images for rubric scored items, i.e. the inability to maintain a portfolio of actual student work images will ultimately render this program to a minor role for the common core teacher.
More variety, flexibility and functions
I love that I can create multi-select questions, make answers worth partial credit or bonus credit, and fix errors to the key with an easy tap of the buttons. Even after tests are scanned, changes are instantly made to all my students' quizzes or tests!
Better still, I can easily fix mis-scans and student errors in the app without a rescan. If I question a student during follow-up 1-on-1, and they orally answer correctly, I can change their scanned answer in seconds!
And since I'm always trying to improve as a teacher, item analysis shows me what I need to reteach (when students answered all over the place) and what questions were worded ambiguously or on which students were unanimously mistaken. Next year, I can teach those concepts better or change the question to be more clear!
My wife and I both use it for small quizzes and large tests, and we recommend this app to every teacher out there!
I decided to use ZipGrade at the last minute for my semester exams and oh my goodness it has saved so much time. The app is super easy to use and very straightforward. The item analysis on the web version is beneficial for grading purposes. It breaks down who answered what for each question. If I were to try and analyze every test for 120 students it would take SO MANY HOURS. All it takes is a few minutes to add your rosters and a couple minutes to scan a class test. I’m super excited to be able to use this a lot more.
