"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 trends in my students' writing that was extremely helpful and really informed my instruction moving from there. I would ABSOLUTELY use again, and recommend them to anyone!"
8th Grade English, Denver
"…saved me tons of time while also allowing me to provide my students with targeted, meaningful feedback on their work. The analysis that it provided allowed me to make changes to my own teaching that will help my students grow and refine their skills moving forward. The Graide Network was easy to use, efficient, and provided great results!"
8th Grade Science, New York
"Being a Graide Network TA was an incredibly informative and rewarding experience. As someone who hopes to be a teacher in the future, it was great to be able to work directly with students' work in subjects that I want to teach!"
University of Michigan
"The Graide Network has been a tremendous help to me as a teacher. When teaching 170 students, it is hard to be able to give essay assignments. With the help of this service, I am able to give more in-depth assignments—that really benefits students. Their service was timely, efficient and extremely helpful. They gave wonderful feedback for each student's assignment, giving them a new goal for the next assignment. I highly recommend this service."
6th Grade Social Studies, Richmond, VA
"I was amazed with the feedback I received. The feedback was higher quality than I expected given the amount of hours the TA spent grading it. It was detailed and high quality; I was able to use it directly in the parent/teacher conferences I had that week. I also loved the data analysis and synthesis. I received class averages for each trait which helped me know which traits to focus on and which students needed more attention."
