Join us on Wednesday, Aug. 14, from 10 a.m. - 12 p.m., in Marshall d'Avray Hall, 249. Facilitator: Patrick Reynolds, Math & Stats.

Crowdmark is a collaborative online grading platform that can greatly enhance grading, feedback, re-distribution, and record-keeping for tests, assignments, essays, multiple choice tests, group exams, etc. It's useful for large and small classes alike. It allows work to be graded anywhere and anytime, comment libraries for regularly-used comments, management and oversight of teams of graders, tagging of problems. It eliminates the need to hand back hardcopies as students receive their marked up work directly via email. The grading process itself is sped up due to the lack of paper shuffling. After a very successful pilot in 2018-19, UNB has renewed the license for 2019-20 across all units and both campuses.

"For what it's worth, I've known about Crowdmark for some years and was very skeptical of its utility, until I tried it in a real marking setting and was thoroughly impressed; when I asked a colleague at another institution for his honest thoughts on the software, he replied "I simply cannot imagine how I could do without it."
