Grade multiple choice tests, quizzes, and assessments instantly in the classroom by using your Android device’s camera as a grading scanner. ZipGrade is a grading app that makes grading effortless while capturing, storing, and reporting with useful data on assessments. No need to wait for the Scantron machine or sheetfed scanner to grade papers quickly.
Students receive immediate feedback and can see their score on a test as soon as they’re done. Teachers can have all of their multiple-choice grading done before the next class starts. Based on teacher feedback over the last year, numerous options are available to customize ZipGrade to meet different classroom needs.
- Free answer sheets available in several formats and sizes (up to 100 question answer sheets)
- Works without internet connectivity. Data will sync whenever a connection is found (optional).
- Uses student ID numbers or written name of student for reporting.
- Knows when a paper is in viewfinder and sufficiently in focus to grade. No buttons to press while grading!
- Students may use pen or pencil. Handles erasures and white out well.
- Combination answers of up to 3 letters allow for up to 31 answers for each question– great for matching portions!

As a free download with a 100 scan demo, we’d like you to try ZipGrade to see if it is the right grading app for you. If so, purchase additional time at any point as an in-app purchase. Once purchased, use your subscription on any device you own by logging in with the same ZipGrade Cloud user. Your data and subscription will sync between devices. Many teachers like to scan with their phone, but review with their tablet or desktop computer.
Great for exit tickets, formative assessments, summative assessments, or regular quizzes. By giving teachers the flexibility to grade papers instantly anywhere, ZipGrade provides immediate feedback on current knowledge and can be used to better focus lessons and assignments. Replace your expensive Scantron machine with the technology you’re carrying with you already.
