Online Testing Now Available in Remark Test Grading Cloud

Teacher working online

We are proud to announce support for a new online testing component in Remark Test Grading Cloud! Over the last several weeks the Remark Team has been hard at work to make Remark Test Grading Cloud an application you can rely on as you migrate to remote instruction. This includes revamping our Remark Electronic Bubble Sheet functionality to make it more user friendly and now…support for Remark Online Testing!

When creating an online assessment in Remark Test Grading Cloud, instructors continue to design their tests the same way they would with a bubble sheet. The user experience from the instructor perspective has not changed. Instead of printing physical forms, instructors are able to email a link to the online test to students. Students access the test online, select their desired answers, and submit their selections. These results are sent directly to Remark Test Grading Cloud and graded automatically against the instructor’s pre-defined answer key. Additional functionality, such as the ability to set an availability window for a test, is available and we are working on new functionality every day.

The Remark Team is proud to cater to the needs of our customers. We have always released new products and enhancements based on customer feedback. That has not changed in the face of the COVID-19 pandemic. We are here to serve you in your time of need as we all tackle the new normal of working and teaching remotely.

To further support you in your time of need, Gravic is offering free Remark Test Grading Cloud accounts for individual educators in the US and Canada. These  accounts are valid through May 31, 2020. Additionally, we are offering a free connector to Canvas, Blackboard, or D2L to schools who are looking for access to Remark Test Grading Cloud for multiple instructors. These free accounts include free training options to assist new users with getting up and running with the application.

Request your free trial today by contacting the Remark Team at sales@gravic.com or by calling 1-800.858.0860.

Electronic Bubble Sheet Grading with Remark Test Grading Cloud

As most educational institutions are forced to move to online classes to stop the spread of COVID-19, the Remark Team would like to assist educators during this difficult transition. Our Remark Test Grading Cloud solution has the ability to create and process electronic bubble sheets (fillable PDFs), providing a simple solution for educators to quickly evaluate student learning. This allows educators to continue evaluating their students the same way they do when they are in class, with customized bubble sheets.

Use Remark Test Grading Cloud to create simple formative assessments to evaluate how students are learning materials while at home. The electronic bubble sheets are created and emailed to students from Remark Test Grading Cloud. Students specify their answers on the PDF sheet and email the completed electronic test sheets to the cloud for processing. Powerful reports are created, enabling instructors to see test, class, student and item performance to better gauge student understanding of the material. For school accounts, available connectors to Canvas, D2L and Blackboard are available to sync grades automatically to these LMS systems. Many other formats are available to export grade information to other gradebook or reporting systems.

In an effort to assist educators in negotiating this unexpected transition, Gravic is offering free accounts for individual educators in the US and Canada good through the end of May. For schools looking for access for their instructors, we are offering a free connector to Canvas, Blackboard or D2L. We are also offering some free training options for new users to get you up and running with the tool. Contact the Remark Sales Team at sales@gravic.com or by calling 1-800-858-0860.

Since 1991, Gravic’s Remark Products Group has worked to save educators time and money on their test grading needs. In 1991, we released Remark Office OMR, the first OMR software solution that allowed users to create and print their own tests and scan them in using any image scanner. Remark Office OMR is still the market- leading OMR Software. In 2012, we released Remark Test Grading Edition, which is a locally installed, streamlined test scoring application. In 2016, we released Remark Test Grading Cloud, built on the industry-leading technology of Remark Office OMR. We are continually improving our products and looking for new ways to assist educators with their testing needs.
