Making Exam Marking Easier

Friday, August 7, 2015

The Faculty of Mathematics has contracted with Crowdmark Inc. to provide campus-wide on-line midterm/exam marking and results distribution starting Fall 2015 for all course instructors who are interested.

Students write exam papers with Crowdmark-generated QR codes on each page. Exams are later scanned and uploaded to Crowdmark for marking.
