How much does Pencil cost? Is there a limit on users?

Pencil costs $5/mo for each admin account, plus the cost of digitizing content which is $.043/question and $.050 for a page of text.

Additional users are free up to 50 non-administrator accounts.

Does Pencil provide analytics on my content?

Pencil provides two types of analytics.

First it provides analytics on content usage including the answers students give to questions, the number of times a question is used, how often a question is answered correctly, etc.

It also provides analytics on the distribution of your content. For example, how much content you have in a specific topic or sub-topic, and whether that content is easy or difficult.

Can I export my content in Pencil?

Once digitized, Pencil can provide a "database dump" of all the content that was entered.
