The Graide Network’s mission is to improve literacy and student engagement through timely, actionable, and high-quality feedback. While high-quality feedback has a significant effect on student achievement, the sheer hours required are prohibitive, and teachers are often already overwhelmed. To solve this long-standing problem, The Graide Network leverages technology to facilitate a new and powerful collaboration between teachers and future teachers.
The Graide Network is an online platform that connects middle and high school teachers with on-demand teaching assistants to grade and provide thorough feedback on student work. “Graiders” are highly qualified, vetted undergraduate education students, also known as pre-service teachers. They are being trained as educators, passionate about helping students, and seeking more and better fieldwork experience. Their support gives teachers more time to focus on the most impactful aspects of teaching while deepening their understanding of student progress. Most importantly, students receive more personalized feedback faster than ever before.
