Echograde is a browser-based mobile application designed to facilitate communication and feedback between students and teachers. Students send pictures of their work with their mobile device to their teacher, who can grade, comment, and chat with the student regarding the problem. Echograde is free to students to download, but requires a teacher subscription.
After downloading the Echograde application on their mobile device, students can be added to multiple classes. In order for teachers to add students to their class, they must purchase an annual subscription. Teachers can add multiple classes or sections.
Students take a picture of their work and submit it to their teacher. Teachers can then score the work (points out of 5) or provide additional feedback by either directly sketching on the picture of the student’s work or replying with comments or questions. Students will automatically receive this feedback, and can reply with answers or additional questions. Echograde provides this simple platform to encourage student-teacher communication after class, and an easy solution for math, science, and foreign language teachers to answer questions and provide feedback on work that is not easily typed into a computer. Echograde also tracks student’s progress and creates a digital portfolio of all student submissions.
Echograde is a web-based mobile application that requires an online network. Echograde can only be downloaded on a smartphone or tablet. The app requires at least an operating system of IOS 6.0 or Android 2.3.3.
Echograde offers a $60 teacher subscription per teacher per year. Subscription information can be found here after sign-in.
