Xerox Photocopiers has developed a new technology called Ignite, which it hopes will help teachers to save time whilst marking and grading student papers.
The new Ignite Xerox Photocopier technology has already currently in real-world testing in New York, and first results and feed indicate that users are impressed with the results so far.
Ignite has been designed to enable teachers to send papers to the Xerox photocopiers that can even recognise handwriting, to distinguish both math formulas, as well as long-form essays. Watch the video below to learn more about the new paper gradin technology developed by Xerox.
“If, for example, a third-grade teacher wants to know how well his class has grasped a lesson on fractions, he can scan his students’ homework and assessments into the Ignite system via a range of Xerox multifunction devices. Using advanced “image capture” technology, the software reads and analyzes the students’ work in minutes. Then – in real time – the teacher can select how he wants to view the data by choosing from a number of different one-page reports “
