Today: Looking for a Smarter Scantron Alternative? Try GradeHub!

GradeHub is a more convenient way to score multiple-choice exams using paper answer sheets. In contrast to Scantron, GradeHub uses personalized answer sheets that can be printed from an ordinary printer and read by an ordinary scanner. No need to buy special answer sheets or scoring machines. GradeHub integrates with Blackboard and provides useful test statistics.

CERT (formerly DEIT) Director Eric Hagan will lead a GradeHub information session on Thursday, September 19 at 3:45PM. This session will be held in the CERT office conference area (Dooling 40) or join us online at

Eric used GradeHub last year and will show you exactly how it works. This session is for faculty that use or are considering using machine-readable answer sheets (Scantrons). Staff are welcome, too!
