If you are not using GradeCam instead of scantron, you are missing out. I love this technology and it has done awesome things for my time and tracking of standards. It is by far the best investment I have ever made. Then make your own link and share with all your colleagues so you get 3 months free as well! Scan with your ipad, elmo, or computer camera and print your own bubble sheets. No more buying expensive scantrons!
You get 3 months free every time you share your link with someone and they scan one test. I use it for every test I give that is multiple choice. I can't video me using it because our school has a policy about students in our videos, and my students are the ones who use it. My students scan their own tests in student view on my laptop. This tells them the question numbers that they got wrong, but does not show them the actual answers. My students do immediate in class corrections.
Also, this lets you input your standards and track a class all year long for growth. It has all of the Common Core standards as well as the new Science standards and TEKS. I learned about it at my previous school and introduced it to the new department here. We are all using it now because once you set up an account, if you share the link it gives you 3 months free. You just keep sharing to keep it free.

I am currently attending KySTE, Kentucky's educational technology conference, and I was given a demo of grade cam last night. It is incredible how easy fast and powerful it is. Im not sure we can afford the $1700 a year fee, but i am going to use the heck out of their unlimted free 10 question maximum offer.

This is awesome! I checked out the site and it looks great. Seems like its as simple as clickers but cheaper and no log in issues. Could I put up my ppt warm-up questions on screen and have the kids just fill it in and come check it as they finish?

Also, can you get the data on what question was missed most and what the wrong answer was or is that an extra cost?

Thanks for spreading this tool!
