Techy Teacher Tuesday: Easy Grader/Groovy Grader Apps

I don't know about ya'll but I HATE COUGHloveCOUGH grading papers. It is my least favorite part of our job. I sware I'm going to invent an app that will scan a paper and grade it for me. Don't take my idea now! Anyways, back to the point. If your like me, I often will leave my EZ grader somewhere instead of keeping it in my gradebook where it belongs. Then I discovered..."hey, there's an app for that!" I'm linking up with Queen of the First Grade Jungles "Techy Teacher Tuesday to
 to share 2 grading apps with ya'll. One for iPhone/iPad and the other for android users.
 
 
 
I recently made the switch from an iPhone 4 to the Samsung Galaxy SIII. I know some of you are probably giving me a look right now. I had an iPhone for 4 years and decided I wanted to try something different. I absolutely L-O-V-E my phone now ya'll! Ok, I'm getting of topic again. Before on my iPhone, I had the app "groovy grader." (I'll get to that in a minute). Now, I'm using an app called "easy grader". You can find it in the google play store. Its a simple grader for on the go teachers like myself. Its simple, east to use and most importantly, I always have it with me. I've tried a few others on this phone but this is my favorite one that I've found so far.
 
The app icon looks like this.
Here is what the app itself looks like.
 
 
Now, when I had my iPhone, I used an app called "groovy grader." I loved this app and wish they had a droid version. I still use it on my iPad for work.

The best part about both of these apps is that they are both FREE!!!
 
Do you use a different grading app? If so, let me know what it is and I'll check it out.

  1. Thank you for this great tip! I always lose or can't find my EZ Grader also. I am going to download this app right away.

  2. I wrote an EZ Grader app last year (called Easy Grade) because the current offerings weren't particularly easy to use (or easy on the eyes). My app in on the iOS App Store, it's custom-designed for both iPhone and iPad, and it's much quicker to configure than the apps mentioned above.

    Try it for yourself! There is a free version and a paid version (paid version does half-points!). Here's my page with all the info and links to the App Store:
