ATS is looking to partner with faculty who are interested in piloting a tool called Akindi which is a web-based assessment system that automates the creation and grading of multiple choice exams. Akindi does not require proprietary scanners and paper. It allows you to use any sheet of paper and a scanner such as your department copier. It also allows you to print out the forms using a regular printer with student information pre-printed. Responses are processed by uploading a PDF scan of the completed assessments. Data analysis is then available by question and scores can be brought back into the Blackboard Grade Center. Click for additional details about Akindi or contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or 973-353-1713.
