Auto-grading in the Language Classroom

Want to reduce your workload? How about reducing the number of grades you manually correct? FluentKey provides an easy way to incorporate auto-grading into the language classroom! You can use them as homework, individual class work, or play it live with your class! There are many auto-graded assessment types that you can create:  multiple choice (select all that apply), scramble, fill-in-the-blank, matching, and put-in-order!

Ready to learn how to save yourself time? I’ll start with how each of these question types will look on our platform. Then, you’ll learn how to create your own auto-graded assignments!
