Viewing the Results

Akindi will present the questions in the results table in the same order as your original test questions and answer key. You can 'Send Grades to 'LMS'', as well as exporting the results to a CSV file.

At this time, 'Download corrected sheets' and 'Email students their grades' functions are not supported for tests set up with Question Scrambling.
