 Our Elegant Reporting

Professors often ask me “what makes GradeHub different from using scantrons,” and I respond among other things “it’s our elegant reporting.” By using modern tools, we let you turn the time-tested process of answer sheets into beautiful insight–clear and uncluttered. That’s a lot more than just getting a little red number at the bottom of a green bubble sheet, you know which ones I mean.

Our item matrix plots both item discrimination with difficulty. Questions with poor discrimination might need revision. Whereas hard questions might indicate that your students may not have mastered a learning objective. This report can give you a great idea of both test difficulty and validity, in one clear view.
