1. Creating an Assessment
Once you've created your course, click the 'Create Assessment' button on the top right hand corner.
Set up your assessment by choosing a Course, adding the Assessment Name, and selecting ‘Paper’ as the Assessment type.
Choose whether to turn on multiple versions and select a bubble sheet layout for your assessment. You'll also have the choice of allowing Akindi to pre-fill the test sheets with the student IDs. Click 'Save & Continue'.
2. Creating an Answer Key
Enter your answer key by selecting the correct response for each question. Turn on ‘advanced marking’ options to control the weight and grading scheme of each question. Click 'Continue'.
3. Printing Test Sheets
On the next step, click 'Print Bubble Sheets' to open a PDF of your test sheets, download the PDF test sheets and print them using any printer and regular paper.
4. Scanning and Uploading Test Sheets
After the test has been completed, scan the test sheets to a PDF using any scanner and select ‘Upload sheets’ to upload the PDF to Akindi.
5. Resolving Exceptions
When scanning the test sheets, Akindi will call exceptions if student information is missing or mis-filled, if a student bubbles-in more responses than the answer key contains, or if a page wasn't able to be graded.
Select the one of the presented suggestions to or search the student name by ID of student number in the dropdown menu.
6. Analyzing the results
Once the sheets have been uploaded, click 'View Results'. Our results analysis help you to answer two main questions: how well did the student do and how well was the test designed.
7. Exporting the Test Results
There are a number of ways to export the results using the 'Actions' dropdown menu. Export the raw results into a CSV file, download the question breakdown in a CSV, email students their grades.
You may also have the option of sending the grades directly to your Learning Management System. This button will appear next to the 'Action's dropdown menu.
