Mobile grading app joins forces with student information system, enabling teachers and administrators to take action based on real-time achievement data

grading-dataQuick Key, the mobile assessment software that targets student performance and aims to eliminate hand grading, has announced a collaboration with Pearson through an independent software vendor (ISV) partnership agreement that hopes to help educators quickly score assessments using Quick Key’s mobile scanner app and instantly upload results to the PowerSchool student information system.

“Quick Key and PowerSchool are a perfect match,” said Kyle Hansen, PowerSchool Administrator at American Leadership Academy in Spanish Fork, Utah. “When I found Quick Key last year, I loved it. Now that class rosters and assessment results are automatically synced between the two platforms, tracking and analyzing student assessment data has become truly effortless.”

The integration enables educators and administrators to take action based on real-time data, to identify which students need help and which lessons need to be re-taught. Hours previously spent hand-grading assignments can now be spent focusing on how to best meet individual students’ needs.
