What is Crowdmark?

Crowdmark is an online, collaborative marking system designed for page-at-a-time grading. Pages in an assignment or test can be graded by markers and reviewed by instructors concurrently.    

For paper-based tests and exams

Crowdmark offers online, manual grading to instructors and their teaching assistants.

For term assignments

In addition to manual online grading, Crowdmark offers a paperless way to distribute, collect, grade, and return feedback, all online.
