Associate Professor of Mechanical Engineering and Engineering Education Ed Berger admits there are some parts of his job he loves more than others.
Working with students and studying ways to be a more effective educator would be two areas high on a list of his likes. Grading papers and exams, he admits, would be somewhat lower.
But Berger says he has found a way to reduce the time he spends grading through the use of an online grading platform called Gradescope, which allows instructors to grade papers online efficiently and accurately.
This fall, Purdue began a pilot program to offer Gradescope to instructors and faculty interested in joining a spring pilot program are encouraged to learn more by contacting firstname.lastname@example.org. Faculty are also invited to learn more about Gradescope by attending the next Tech Today event on Friday, Nov. 3.
