CrowdGrader runs on the Google Cloud, which guarantees top-notch security, high availability, full scalability, and geographically distributed replicas of the data to ensure that the student work is not lost. In order to help pay for this infrastructure, we started charging for the service. The intention is to provide an affordable service, while covering the costs.
Each assignment can be either instructor-sponsored or student-supported.
Instructor-Sponsored AssignmentsInstructor-sponsored assignments come in three tiers:
- Free: up to 10 students
- Small: $2.99, up to 35 students
- Medium: $6.99, up to 100 students
- Large: $13.98, unlimited students
- Three-weeks free trial. A three-week trial period gives students time to sort out any payment issues at the beginning of a class.
- $1.99/six months: Students pay a non-refundable $1.99 subscription fee for six months of access to CrowdGrader.
In a month or so, we will take a look at the costs vs. income, and we will assess whether we can lower prices. We hope you consider our service good value for the money, and we thank our users for their support.
