Even though I know how to code computers, I’ve spent an awful lot of time calculating in my head and scribbling a list of grades for the current number of total answers on a test. The problem is that those lists are always scribbled. They never get saved. So, I end up re-inventing the wheel over and over and over again.
So, today, I decided to just go ahead and code an online grader to help myself and other teachers who might all be doing the same thing as me. You can see my example of the grader here.
Since I took the time to create it as a plugin for WordPress, I thought I would share it with everyone else — for free — because yes, I know that all teachers just love free stuff. So, if you have your own WordPress blog, you can download the plugin directly from here. Then, you would simply upload it into your WordPress plugins. Or, you can search for it in the normal WordPress repository.
Once you have activated the plugin, you simply use the shortcode ez-grader in your posts and pages, wherever you want the online grader to appear. As of right now, there are no options to set, but watch for updates in the future.
