Take the routine and tedium out of marking papers by using â€œHigh Marks,â€ an app that enables touch-screen OR voice-command grading. How does it work? 1.The student emails the prof an essay or other writing assignment. 2.The prof, while visiting a favorite café or other quiet spot, opens the studentâ€™s file and pastes it into â€œHigh Marks.â€ 3.The prof quickly marks the text by touching the screen where she wishes to make comments. The prof can choose from over three dozen of the most common reader comments (e.g., â€œfragment,â€ â€œcomma splice,â€ â€œgood point,â€ â€œsource?â€) or make custom comments up to 256 characters. The software operates by voice command or fingertipâ€â€no writing! 4.The prof has the option of assigning a letter or numerical grade and writing a summative note to the student. 5.The prof taps the â€œsendâ€ button and returns the marked and graded essay to the studentâ€™s email address. How much time does it save? It depends on the quality of the paper. â€œAâ€ papers, as every instructor knows, are pretty easy to grade since they require relatively little marking. Most of the instructorâ€™s time is happily spent commenting on substantive issues. But as you approach the middle of the bell curve, where the Bs, Cs, and Ds, reside, â€œHigh Marksâ€ can cut your grading time in half. Find yourself writing the same comment again and again? With â€œHigh Marks,â€ you donâ€™t write any commentsâ€â€just tap and talk. Or tap and tap. Either way, the tedium disappears. Features â€¢Paste text into the app from any document. â€¢Store documents in the app and select them on demand. â€¢Sort documents by assignment type. â€¢Make routine comments with the touch of a finger or by vocal command. â€¢Make custom comments up to 256 characters. â€¢Comments will be stored alongside the text of the document itself for future reference and distribution. â€¢After grading, documents are automatically saved and ready to be returned to students. â€¢Upon completion, the document will be saved as a standalone, commented, distributable digital copy. â€¢Make general comments on the studentâ€™s work and assign numerical and/or letter grades. â€¢Return assignments with the tap of a button. â€œHighMarksâ€ incorporates the CMU Pocketsphinx library, the CMU Flite library, MITâ€™s MITLM library, and Politepixâ€™s OpenEarsâ€ for voice recognition.
