Over a year ago, we announced the release of SmartGrade because we believe in saving teachers’ time. We believe in automation and in making repetitive tasks easier and faster, so educators can focus on the valuable stuff — educating. Since then, teachers have been using our app to save up time and energy when grading multiple choice tests.

We are now proud to take our vision one step further and announce the release of Exam Creator, a free web-based tool for helping educators create multiple choice tests. …

Alex (@yourclassroomhelper) shared with us an amazing SmartGrade video tutorial she put together for her followers. In the video, she does a hands-on, live tour of the app, while she points out some of the her favorite features.

As always, happy teaching!
