Unfortunately it's not a late April's Fool joke.

The graders working for EduMetry, based in a Virginia suburb of Washington, are concentrated in India, Singapore, and Malaysia, along with some in the United States and elsewhere. They do their work online and communicate with professors via e-mail. The company advertises that its graders hold advanced degrees and can quickly turn around assignments with sophisticated commentary, because they are not juggling their own course work, too.

Now it's just a business school but how long do you think it'll take to spread to the physics and mathematics departments?

It's especially interesting when college paper writing is also outsourced to India...
