    Default grade papers

    Can I say "to grade some papers" meaning to put marks on them?

    I believe that Americans "grade" papers, whereas Britons "mark" them.

    In fact, teachers grade papers to put a grade on them in the U.S.
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
