It is well known that the workload teachers face because of their marking is immense, but how many are willing to make a change? Mark Mate allows you to continue marking in your normal way, but drastically reduces the time it takes by allowing you to verbally dictate your feedback.

Average dictation speed is around 100 Words Per Minute.
MARKING BY HAND
Marking 30 books by hand takes, on average, around 2-3 hours.
MARKING BY VOICE

The QL-500 Label printer provided uses thermal transfer technology, meaning there is no ink to replace, ever!
CAN I PRINT IN COLOUR?
Due to using thermal transfer, it is only possible to print in black and white. If school policy requires a colour, why not use a highlighter on the label?
IS THERE A MOBILE APP?
We are going to be launching Mark Mate Mobile during the summer holidays which will allow you to mark student’s work with your voice using nothing but your phone. This will be available for all users at no extra cost.
ARE LABELS INCLUDED IN THE SUBSCRIPTION?
When first signing up for Mark Mate, we supply you with a printer and a startup roll of labels to get you going. We do not include more rolls of labels as part of the subscription, these can be purchased online or through us. More information can be found on our Labels Page.
