The Cost of Automatic Grading

We have automatic grading machines at my school. But they have a cost, I think. After hand grading 50 tests in the last couple of days, I realize that doing so gives me an intimate sense of what the students are not getting. I don't think I would garner the same knowledge even from a detailed statistical breakdown offered by a grading machine.

Old-fashioned excuse: "The dog ate my homework."

Modern excuse: "Dual-factor authentication ate my ability to do my homework."
