Its PC connectivity allows a teacher to instantaneously score tests and enter the scores into PC-based grade books and district administrative databases. Its simple and quiet operation allows teachers to score tests while class is still in session.

The GradeMaster works in conjunction with Apperson's complete line of Scantron compatible test-scoring forms. The machine is ready to operate straight out of the box.
