Essay Grader lets you point and click to create a feedback comment sheet. Provide your students with exceptional feedback, and reduce your grading time with Essay Grader. By moving back and forth between a series of tabs and clicking appropriate comment fields, a feedback document is created for each essay you grade. The final assessment document can either be emailed directly to the student or exported to your computer for editing and printing.

Essay Grader comes with three unique banks of pre-written comments for a multitude of topics within the categories of praise, organization, content, mechanics, style, and documentation. All categories and comments are fully editable, and Essay Grader comes with three empty banks where you can write entirely original comments of your own. The first and last paragraphs of the feedback document are optional free-write paragraphs where you have the ability to personalize each student's feedback sheet. Essay Grader helps you avoid writing the same comments over and over again by hand and gives you the ability to provide more targeted and more comprehensive feedback than you can with a red pen. When you finish choosing the appropriate comments, simply assign a holistic grade on the "Grade" tab and that grade will appear at the bottom of the student's feedback sheet.

Essay Grader is not automatic grading software, but it will allow you to grade much faster and better than ever before. Every aspect of Essay Grader is fully editable making the program perfect for grading written work, performances, group projects, and speeches in any discipline.

Dramatically decrease your grading time, provide praise, and give more thorough feedback than ever before with this highly effective app. Essay Grader was developed by a college English professor with extensive secondary experience and is appropriate for all levels from secondary through graduate-level university academics.
