>High-speed correcting

>If you find yourself with a large number of tests to correct and little time to do them you could make a cut-out template to help you.

What I like to do though is to make a recording of the answers on my computer, using the ‘sound recording’ feature under Windows accessories. I then play the recording, sometimes even speeding it up to 200%, and check the papers.

The advantage of recording it on the computer as opposed to a tape recorder is that you don’t have to rewind to play it again.

  1. >Excellent idea Dave! The problem with visual keys is that one often has to shift the eyes from the test paper to the answer key. Making a recording of the answers eliminates that step. Maybe things have changed but I was under the impression that recordings using sound recorder were limited to 60 seconds. One could also use the free open-source software Audacity which has more capabilities.

  2. >Audacity is a great piece of free software. You’re right.
