Needing to drive efficiencies without compromising quality, Canon developed an intelligent grading solution for teachers at a Dubai school.
Via the Canon Education for Life Program, we partnered with Dubai School to develop an intelligent grading and digital archiving solution to:
Leveraging Canon’s Smart Data Capturing Solution, we developed a simple cloud-based testing and grading application (Intelligent Grading Solution), which provides teachers with a range of on-demand options via the multifunction device, reducing administrative time and providing greater insight into class performance.
A template of an exam grading and answers sheet is generated according to the subject, grade and curriculum requirements. Teachers print exams on plain paper as and when required.
On completion, the system uses an optical mark recognition (OMR) function to grade the exam sheets against the pre-scanned grading and answers sheet. Teachers only need double-check the result and amend where required.
Analysis at both class and grade level is available via various reporting options. The content management software enables simple updating of student and class information, with student results automatically archived in a personal digital archive system.
Security is critical, with access set at a user or group level, and logins and authentication required. And because the system is cloud-based, the school doesn’t need to handle installation, implementation or ongoing maintenance.
Teachers are working faster without sacrificing teaching quality, positioning the Dubai School as smarter and forward-thinking.
