Mark Mate – It’s hard to go back!
Something we love hearing about is the way Mark Mate has had an impact on our users’ workload and work-life balance. This is the whole reason our platform was created and it’s amazing to hear from you all!
After our success in the Dragons’ Den last year, we have focused on listening to the feedback of our users because we want to improve and grow Mark Mate and have planned a huge update due to be released in September, along with our mobile application.
Today’s story comes from Cicely Clasby. Head of English, Cicely uses Mark Mate to help speed through her massive daily marking load because she is able to write detailed comments in a fraction of the time.
The fact that I can record my feedback as I edit the students’ work really helps to speed up the process. The fact that this feedback is then saved online is a massive help too.
Mark Mate For Assessment
Not only does Mark Mate speed up the marking process but it also enables you to collect formative assessment data every time you mark. With customisable grade sets and objectives it really is up to you how you would like to assess.
It’s made assessment really at the focus. I know exactly where the kids are going and where they’re coming from so you can share the assessment criteria with the children.
You can watch Cicely’s story in full below and we would love to hear from our users in the comments. What impact has Mark Mate had on your workload? Have you found any interesting ways to use it in your classroom? Any suggestions for new features?
