Summary/Abstract: This study aimed to determine EFL (English as a Foreign Language) teachers’ perceptions and experience regarding their use of GradeCam Go! to grade multiple choice tests. The results of the study indicated that the participants overwhelmingly valued GradeCam Go! due to its features such as grading printed forms for multiple-choice questions as well as the immediate feedback provided to both teachers and their students. The results of the study also indicate that GradeCam Go! might be a very useful tool for teachers working in schools with large classrooms where technological resources are rare. GradeCam Go! seems to pave the way for an easy and efficient tool for teachers to use regular assessment through frequent quizzes, give immediate feedback, and monitor student progress.
