Xerox is introducing new software called Ignite that will turn printer-copier-scanners into grading machines. The company plans to have it ready for schools by the 2013-2014 school year.

Xerox Photocopier Becomes Grading Machine

Ignite grades handwritten tests and keeps track of how well students are doing on each question, producing personalized analytic reports for teachers. By taking over the grading component of teaching, this software is intended to give teachers more time to focus on other tasks, such as lesson planning.

In order to train the software, teachers provide the test, and answer key and the concepts each question covers. Ignite uses this data to work out which answers are correct and where on each page the handwritten answers will be located. You can check out this new “educational support system” in the video below:
