Accessing the online assessment

You’ll receive an email from sent by your instructor from Akindi, providing you with the following information:

  • The title of the course and the assessment that you’ll be completing

  • The date and time the assessment will become available to access

  • The date and time the assessment must be submitted by

  • A button allowing you to ‘Start assessment’ 

If your instructor has set up a timed assessment, then the allotted time that you'll have to complete the assessment, will also be outlined in the email.

Click on the ‘Start Assessment’ button which will open your assessment in a new browser tab or window. 

In order to begin your assessment, Akindi will ask you to verify that the name and student ID on the assessment is accurate to you, in addition to other key information. 

Click ‘I agree’ to confirm the details on the assessment are correct and to begin the assessment. 

Viewing the test questions

If your instructor has decided to display the test questions via Akindi, you'll see the questions on the left hand side and your online bubble sheet on the right hand side of the screen. However, If your instructor has sent you the test questions separately, you will only see your online bubble sheet displayed. 

Countdown timer

If your instructor set up a timed assessment, then Akindi will display a countdown timer in the top right hand corner of the screen. Once the timer reaches zero, Akindi will automatically submit any answers you have selected to your instructor, even if you were not able to finish the assessment.

Submitting your responses

Click on a single or multiple bubble letters for each question to indicate your answer. To unselect a response, simply click the bubble letter again. 

Double check you have selected a response for each question before clicking ‘submit’ at the bottom of the page to send the assessment submission to your instructor for grading. Once you have submitted your assessment, you won’t be able to access and edit the page again. 

You can only take the test once.
