"I was incredibly impressed by their work…. I received individual feedback that I could give to each student, as well as a summary of strength and weakness."
- Christine S.
8th Grade English | Denver, CO
"In a classroom where urgency to build college-ready skills is as high as ours, the platform has proven to be invaluable. This increase in feedback has allowed me to hone in on specific issues within their writing and correct it with expediency."

HOW DOES IT WORK?
Teachers post detailed information about their assignment, including context about the class, grading instructions, due date, and the rubric.
Teachers can make their own requests or select from inbound Graider applications. Detailed Graider profiles include ratings, experience, relevant coursework, and more.
Teachers upload the student work, which their Graider grades and returns with detailed individual and class reports.
Teachers review the work, download the grades for their gradebooks and return the feedback reports to students. Lastly, teachers rate and review the Graiders.
WHO ARE "GRAIDERS"?
Graiders are undergraduate students who are aspiring teachers and are enrolled in or preparing to enroll in top education programs, a.k.a pre-service teachers. In short order, they will be your colleagues!
HOW ARE GRAIDERS VETTED?
Graiders are vetted and approved by The Graide Network through a rigorous application and interview process. We evaluate relevant experience and coursework, academic performance, and professionalism. We look for passion and demonstrated commitment to teaching, such as club involvement or membership in an education honors society.
HOW are we matched?
We request Graiders who match your subject and grade level. Graiders with strong ratings from other teachers and relevant prior experience are prioritized. You may also send requests to specific Graiders. Many teachers continue to work with the same small group of Graiders.
Timely, formative feedback from trained readers - now possible on-demand.
