GradeCam Student Portal

Blue Valley West purchased the student portal!  This will allow you to send out an assessment to your students to take on a device (e.g. laptop, iPad, phone).  #NoMoreScanningLines!  I hope you will consider this for future AFL’s.

Here are some “rough” directions: student-portal-rough-directions-new-2016

GradeCam – Best Practices for Summative Assessments

If you are using GradeCam to grade summative assessments, it is vital that you have fully vetted your setup and scanning procedure.  While we find that this system is highly reliable, you must first make sure you have your system fully tested for reliable functionality. Read this document to see a full list of best practices before you collect summative data. This is especially vital for Final Exams.  gradecam-final-exam-best-practices


Need an AFL data collection tool?  Take a look at GradeCam.  You can grade multiple-choice, true/false, rubric and now numeric answers and get immediate feedback for your students and teachers.  You can transfer scores into any electronic gradebook – even Synergy!  Students fill out bubble sheets that you can customize and print. The teacher can scan those on any camera (webcam, document camera, phone or tablet).  You get longitudinal data specific to individual students as well as item analysis for the entire class or classes.  You can share assessments and results with other teachers and link questions to state standards.  They offer a free 10 question basic plan as well. Paid plans get up to 100 questions.
