The math behind "4x faster"

We claim that Floop will help you give meaningful feedback 4x faster, where did that come from? I'll claim my privilege up front: my classes are small. At most, I have 18 students in my science class at a time. Most years I have three sections of eighth grade science. So thats:
54 students
My students submit something that needs detailed feedback about once every two weeks (though they get quick formative feedback much more often). When I gave detailed feedback by hand, it used to take me about

12 minutes per submission This adds up to about

10.8hrs of 'grading' per assignment
With Floop, I can drag-and-drop repeat comments, switch through submissions quickly, and I don't have to hand back paper work. Now,  I can give feedback in

3 minutes per submission
This cuts my 'grading' time to about

2.7hrs per assignment
What do I do with all that extra time? So much!
