Crowdmark for Students


Crowdmark is an online collaborative grading and analytics platform that helps educators, working alone or in teams, to more effectively evaluate student work. The platform allows for easy distribution and collection of student work, offers tools for the assembly and management of grading teams, and provides an online workflow that streamlines grading and the delivery of rich feedback to students. Crowdmark also features a full integration with onQ, Queen's University's enterprise learning management system, allowing for courses and classlists to be seamlessly imported to Crowdmark, and for grades to be exported back to onQ. 


  • Save Time: Assignments and tests can be graded by several markers concurrently, greatly reducing turnaround time, especially in large courses
  • Improved Feedback: Easy-to-use grading interface allows for providing rich, formative feedback directly on students' work, supporting students' understanding of errors
  • Academic Integrity: Scans of assignments and exams are preserved, supporting re-grade requests; grading is also done blind to student identities, reducing implicit grading bias
  • Eco-friendly: Paperless workflow for distributing, collecting, grading and returning assignments
