A new startup called the Graide Network aims to lighten the load for teachers by grading their students’ papers.

Graide (a combination of “grade” plus “aide”) connects teachers with trained assistants who evaluate student papers and return them in a few days. The teacher uploads the writing assignment, grading measure, and any other instructions the student received to an education student trained in responding to student writing. The grader scores the work using the yardstick, and writes up to three comments noting strengths and up to three on how the writing could be improved.

The cost is $16 an hour, increasing to $18 an hour starting in July.
