Crowdmark is an online tool integrated into Brock’s Brightspace for the Faculty of Math and Science to facilitate administering, collecting, and grading handwritten assessments.

What is Crowdmark?

Crowdmark is an online tool focused on making the grading process more effective and and time efficient. This tool is geared towards administering and grading assessments that are easier for students to write by hand than to type in a textbox (i.e. drawing a diagram, completing an equation, etc.).

Crowdmark carefully considers logistical concerns of grading assessments that rely on multiple team members offering a variety of skills and expertise. It aims to make the process of divvying up grading work between members less cumbersome, and offers options for instructors and students to give and receive feedback on handwritten submissions.
