EdTech Company Paperscorer Launches App to Auto-Grade Google Quizzes
In direct response to the massive adoption of Google for Education by US schools, Paperscorer Inc. today launched its Paperscorer app for Google Classroom. Paperscorer enables teachers to generate bubble sheets from Google forms, administer assessments in paper, auto-score assessments with mobile devices and import grades back to their Google accounts.
“There are still many valid reasons to have students take assessments offline,” says Chris Morgan, the Founder and Managing Partner of Paperscorer. “In some situations, a digital device may be considered a distraction to the assessment. Not all students have access to digital devices. Many teachers are under pressure to use technology, but struggle to change their practices completely. That said, the convenience of auto-grading and the advanced capabilities of grade analysis with technology are something most teachers want. Paperscorer aims to bridge this gap.”
Paperscorer’s technology is designed to work with many third party assessment systems. In addition to its Google Classroom support, the company has already partnered with an educational publisher and plans to roll out support for Instructure Canvas, another major learning management system, later this month.
