Lucas Moffit is an independent developer who’s focus is on writing Windows 8 apps for educators. His output is impressive, with Class Seater, Lesson Coder and Teacher Professional Standards Evaluator among his portfolio of success. But his most ambitious project, Essay Marker, has just been released into the Windows Store, and it is quickly climbing up the ranks.

Essay Marker is a fantastic app that allows educators to create, edit and share essay or assignment tasks and evaluate or mark student work. The app has been designed with the needs of the educator in mind, with each function focusing on providing quality feedback for every student.

Upon completion of marking, teachers are able to scroll through charts and graphs of their evaluation averages. They can then take full advantage of the benefits of Microsoft Office products by exporting these visual representations to programmes such as Word.

Essay Marker has revolutionised assessment marking and made the lives of our educators easier. Check out this full demonstration of the app here. You won’t regret it, we promise!
