In taking stress off of the teacher by having students grade som
epapers, you may run into some problems. I know of at least one school
district in Missouri where a lawsuit was brought up about grade
privacy. You must verify with your school district and state
department of education to make sure that you can let students grade
other's work. Also, though I haven't started my first teaching job
yet, my mom is a teacher, and she still had to go and look through the
papers because not all kids are reliable graders. 

When I was in high school, only five years ago, I didn't like having
students grade the papers. It is all dependent on what you would
rather give up, your time or valuable lesson time.
