Many of your are aware that we have a pretty unique way of grading.
When we designed The Answer Pad, we wanted to meet teachers somewhere between paper and digital.
While there are a number of options out there for online quizzes, all of them require a certain amount of time and skill to be able to take the paper assessment, type in all the question, find an engine that has more than 2 or 3 question types, and that can accommodate your graphics! In a couple of words: It’s not as easy as you’d think.
The other approach is to use a scanning approach and there are a number of those out there also. While this is not a paperless approach, it is a great option for teachers that do not have 1:1 technology in their classrooms.
The Answer Pad fits between these two solutions. We take the paper test, create a digital answer sheet for it and the students use the answer sheet to take the quiz. What makes us different is the variety of question types we can grade, the ability for students to show their work for every response, and the robust reporting on the back end. Still not the paperless solution you’re looking for? Well, you can also upload the test file and the students can now be paperless.
We just made the grading solution even better, by adding a Live Monitor tool. Now when you assign the quiz, a teacher can log into reports and monitor the students while they are completing the assignment. We hope you will try out our Answer Sheets!
