Help your K-12 customers beat the grading blues
Grading is one of the hardest, most time-consuming aspects of teaching. Maybe your customers even bought an automatic test-grading system to save time and get students their grades more quickly. But given today’s technology, isn’t there a better way?
There is, thanks to Ricoh’s Testing and Grading Solutions for Education. With plain paper and the multi-function printer the school already has, teachers can make grading a snap and better analyze test scores and problem areas. Their information, their way.
Learn from students — use analytics
A solution that quickly, efficiently grades student exams is nothing to scoff at. But why stop there? Teachers can automatically send student scores through our analytics software, identifying questions that proved especially difficult, and adjusting curriculum as needed. Teachers can even track students’ progress over time, giving them the big picture of what’s working — and what isn’t.
Your test, your customer’s way
With Ricoh, teachers aren’t locked into proprietary test-grading systems. They’ll have more freedom to design tests tailored to their teaching style and their students’ needs. And because they can use plain paper with their current MFP, they have much more flexibility in when, where, and how they choose to print, without being bound to expensive proprietary single-use forms.
Cut costs without sacrificing efficiency
Automatic test-grading is a wonder. But the grading equipment and forms can be costly, and with school budgets under scrutiny, they may find themselves on the chopping block. Our solution uses the equipment and infrastructure they already have in place, so they get to keep their quick turnarounds — without breaking the budget.
Cut costs associated with proprietary grading hardware and associated forms. Use the multi-function printers (MFPs) they already have to print tests on plain paper.
Quick grades, flexible tests
Keep test turnaround time down while making more time for teaching, lesson planning, and student interactions. Modify tests beyond the predetermined setup of proprietary forms to suit the teacher – or their students’ – needs.
Greater understanding of students — and tests
Use analytics to see which questions students are consistently missing, so teachers can reassess their curriculum or their tests. Track students’ progress as their grades change over time. Fast-track test scores from the grading software directly into youth school’s back-end system to automatically adjust students’ grades.
