Works well, Great app support
I teach middle school science and the app is awesome. The only time it read incorrectly was when students changed answers. The one downside is that you can't correct the grade in the program, so you have to know which student(s) grades to fix when you export or transfer to you grade book. I would have given it a 4/5 but I emailed feedback and got a response that afternoon. That kind of attention is worth a star. :) Requested upgrades: 1. Ability to copy quizzes to multiple classes 2. Ability to change answers from wrong to write after the scan

Goodbye Scantron
Once one teacher in a school discovers this app, all the teachers in the school will be using it. It is great to be able to put the bubbles on the same piece of paper as your quiz- only one piece of paper to hand back instead of two. The price of the app is less than the cost of the Scantron forms you would need to give just one or two quizzes.

iPad compatibility issues
I am using an iPad 2 instead of an iPhone. I am finding that it will take multiple pictures of a test when I only clearly select one. Of course I ran into the problem of it marking test answers at had been erased and corrected. Maybe a pen would be better suited for it. But overall, just a little tweaking and this would be a 5 star for sure. Sharing at my faculty meeting Wednesday!

Works great and has a lot of potential!
I have been playing around with this app during the summer and can see a lot of potential for its use. I would like to see the ability to print individual student reports possibly from a pdf export. I give it 5 stars because it works exactly as stated. I will be telling every teacher I know about this app! 3rd grade teacher Update 8/17/13: I tried this with third graders and it was not good. The students have a tough time marking their answers because there aren't letters in the choice circles. This was the first time for them on bubble answer documents however. The erased answers were counted as answers which made the accuracy of scanning very low. Since this was the first time I used zipgrade I wanted to double check the accuracy. The majority of them were not accurate mainly because the students marked a different answer on the bubble sheet than what they marked on the test. I also had them mark on the test just to check the accuracy. Maybe with a little more experience on the bubble sheets, it might get better. The issue of erased answers will still cause problems though. Maybe if the sensitivity of scanning is decreased, that might help. I even tried different lighting and tried scanning on an ipad and iPhone. Still wish for an exporting option and ability to print reports.
