Blaise is a paperless grading system that features strong drafting. Students author papers in the Blaise Editor, a word-like text editor. Graders electronically mark up student papers using TabletPCs. Students then receive the graded papers and the process repeats with a new draft. The process is illustrated in the screenshots section.
