Featured: 12/18/2012 EssayTagger [Assessment]

EssayTagger is an online tool that helps you grade essays faster by eliminating repetitive and inefficient aspects of grading papers. Speed up the grading process while still providing quality feedback to your students.

The goal of EssayTagger is to make grading more efficient by reducing the repetition and inefficiency there is when you grade, such  as writing the same comments on paper after paper.

An intuitive drag-and-drop "tagging" interface allows you to identify the essay's main elements, assess the quality, and provide targeted comments. Quickly add new comments to the list that you can reuse when you encounter the same issue in another student's paper. Soon you'll end up with a collection of comments that cover the variety of student skill levels, organized and easy to retrieve.

EssayTagger is not an auto-grader. You still do the grading yourself doing everything you normally do, only more efficiently.
