Grading becomes even more consequent

  • Emoke oldenkamp dr. (Emoke) E. Oldenkamp-Bazsa

    Lecturer | Erasmus School of Economics | Rotterdam School of Management | Econometrics

Ans is a great achievement for students and graders alike. Certainly with high student numbers, it is the solution for grading open questions: grading becomes even more consequent, the supervisor can oversee and coordinate the grading any moment, from all corners of the world.

With high student numbers, not only the grading, but also the exam perusal has become a problem: extremely time consuming for the graders and stressful for the students, with not enough time and peace of mind to look at their mistakes. Ans also changes the perception of the perusal for both parties: students can look at their work from anywhere in the given time slot, and ask their questions through the internet. Graders can answer these questions from behind their own computers at ease.

Administration around exams and perusals is often stressful; exams are extremely sensitive to the smallest mistakes. Therefore, as many lecturers I guess, I have been quite reluctant to exchange the traditional examination method to Ans. However, support has been so fast and extensive at all times (I have taken now exams at three different courses) that I have never stood alone with a problem for more than an hour. Ans has been a complete success.

Ans let's us focus on the most important thing: the grading itself

    Co-teacher non-linear optimization

For the course non-linear optimization, we have used Ans to grade the final exams of over 300 students. With Ans, we were able to grade faster and more consistent. For me, one of the biggest advantages is that Ans makes it easy to collaborate when grading the exams. During the process, I could see the progress that all graders had made, and with the statistics provided by Ans, I could monitor whether they gave similar grades on average.

The team behind Ans is open to feedback, and they quickly responded if we had any problems. Ans allowed us to spend less time on logistics and administration, so we could focus on the most important thing: the grading itself.
