The Grading Game

JohnBWelcome to the life of a teaching assistant (and/or editor)! The Grading Game by Mode of Expression is a beefed-up version of the arcade-style browser release First Person Tutor. It puts you in the unenviable role of a TA grading papers for a grumpy proffessor who wants his students to get the grade they deserve: a perfect F! Since you're a bit strapped for cash you have no choice but to capitulate, sifting through papers and marking every error you see with a big red pen.

The Grading GameYour life as a TA is relegated to reading clumsy essays of college students one after another. Scan the page and tap on errors to mark them, sliding your finger up the screen to scroll when necessary. Errors range from transposed letters to repeated words, straight-up typos, improper capitalization, and much more, getting progressively more subtle as as you move up in rank. Meet the miniimum quota for each level and you'll move on to the next, charging through over 100 papers before the sweet release of victory is yours. It's going to take a good eye and a relatively firm understanding of the English language to earn your keep and push every student you can to a failing grade.

There's much more content in The Grading Game compared to its original free browser incarnation. You'll also get some little grammar tips, randomly generated errors for practically unlimited gameplay, and three modes to choose from depending on how confident you are in your proofreading skills. It's the perfect piece of entertainment for grammar fiends who caught the three typos in this review and immediately flew into a rage.

Am I the only one who finds this game effing impossible? 30 seconds is NOT enough time to even read the whole paper, let alone find the mistakes. F+

Much improved from the first ridiculously unplayable version -- but it needs an option to replay the level AND a pause button, as well as a realistic amount of time to find the errors.
