Company Summary

The global education explosion lacks scalable methods to certify achievement. Evaluating student work currently involves paging through piles of paper or using ineffective multiple-choice exams. Crowdmark streamlines document assessment and makes it easy for instructors to rapidly mark their own students, or to assemble and manage teams of qualified markers for large classes with hundreds or thousands of students. Market: K-12 and Higher Ed.
