Using GradeCam in the Classroom

Welcome to our September Linky!! Thank you for stopping by my blog, make sure to read all the way to the end for EXCLUSIVE FREEBIES and an AMAZING GIVEAWAY!!!



Today I am here to share about an awesome app I discovered and used all of last year: GradeCam. Grading papers, tests, and assignments... oh what joy!! Before GradeCam I used to stay late to grade and even then I'd take home manila folders full of my student's weekly assignments and Friday tests to grade over the weekend (which translated to Sunday night grading parties) :/



Since using GradeCam, my 2nd graders started to take their assignments and tests home that SAME Friday afternoon... already graded and recorded in my gradebook. Yayyy!!! Happy teacher and happy parents that knew their child's test score that same day.

I LOVE that all this data is instant. I can download reports and easily access during 504's or parent/teacher conferences! Honestly, this app helped me immensely throughout the year, and I am definitely going to continue using it.
