Quercus in A&S

Quercus is the University of Toronto’s new academic technology toolbox, powered by Canvas. Online training resources are available for instructors, teaching assistants and students.

If you are a faculty member or teaching assistant in the Faculty of Arts & Science, you can contact the Teaching Technology Support (TTS) team at tts.artsci@utoronto.ca for Quercus support.


Crowdmark is an online collaborative grading and analytics platform that can provide efficiency in exam administration, grading, data recording and analysis, and data visualizations of student performance.

The option to use Crowdmark for final exams is available to Course Information System (CIS) participants only and should be requested through the Office of the Faculty Registrar’s Exam Office. In all cases, Crowdmark exams cannot have a non-Crowdmark scantron (or any other non-Crowdmark exam component), must be administered as unrestricted, and must be released to students via a direct URL.

All scanning of tests administered through Crowdmark must be conducted in-house in order to comply with security and FIPPA issues. If you do not have access to scanning equipment in your unit, you may wish to arrange to use Remark Office.

The Faculty of Arts & Science is providing financial support for the use of this tool. Units should direct inquiries to Carmela Mazin in the Finance Office. The Teaching Technology Support (TTS) team at tts.artsci@utoronto.ca can assist with the setup of Crowdmark. 

For information on how to use Crowdmark, visit the Quercus Integration Guide.
