"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."

"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 are matched with the best Graider for them and their course. Detailed Graider profiles include ratings, experience, relevant coursework, and more.
Teachers upload student work, which their Graider grades and returns with detailed individual and class feedback 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.
