Enter scores as Points, Percents, Letter Grades, or Rubrics

Weights & Categories

Curve Scores
Easily adjust everyone’s scores if a test was too hard or easy, without needing to change their raw scores. (It does linear interpolation, not just adding/subtracting a fixed number.)
Graph Grades
•  Instantly see whose grades are falling, and who is improving (individual trends).

•  

You and your students see how much each assignment raised or lowered their grade, so they know the consequences of a poor test grade or missing work.

Students may also initiate their own peer reviews from any student, or even non-students like tutors.

Have students post photos, videos, audio, and ideas online for peers to comment on. These critiques can be graded automatically.

Anonymous Grading
When grading essays and write-in answers:

•  

Optionally hide student names, to help grade objectively.

•  

Optionally grade one question at a time, viewing all student answers together, to help grade consistently (and faster).

Set time limits on tests, with exceptions for individual students with special needs.
Item Analysis

•  

Reveal if any questions were unclear, so you can throw them out.

Jupiter is a million times easier, faster, and smoother than the system my university uses. I am able to do more long-answer questions to increase the rigor of my courses, while still reducing the time I spend grading!

Your system is nothing short of amazing! I can’t think of any other tool that made grading so easy and intuitive. Most importantly, the teachers love it.
