An Item Bank, Answer Key Only (AKO) Assessment and an Express Assessment may be set up with the Teacher as the Intended User of the assessment instead of the Student. In this case, the teacher can enter the students’ answers on an online answer sheet after administering the assessment on paper. This technique can also be used for assessments administered at an earlier date, but data needs to be tracked.
Where to Start
Find the desired assessment from the list in the Assessment Manager. Select the bolded Score Online icon (computer) .
The Score Online icon will be bolded if Teacher has been selected as the Intended User during the Setup step of the assessment creation process. For more information, view the Help Document, Create Assessments: Creating an Item Bank Assessment, Creating an Answer Key Only Assessment, and/or Creating an Express Assessment.
Or, from the SchoolCity Launchpad, select the ONLINE Flip Card. On the reverse side, select Enter Answers in Student Answer Sheet. Find the assessment you wish to score or click on More to go to the Assessment Manager.
