***Testing Alternative to Scantron Winter Term***

We are inviting faculty who use Scantron to try Akindi during winter term. Akindi is integrated with Moodle and much more flexible than Scantron.

The way it works is that you open your Moodle course and click on a link to launch Akindi. Your course roster is then integrated with any answer sheets you create for that course. Answer keys are created by uploading a Word doc or pdf version of the exam with the correct answers highlighted. The answer sheets themselves are printed on any printer or copier. After students take the test, instructors scan the answer sheets to Akindi from a copier or scanner and the results are available in Moodle by the time you get back to your desk. Instant scoring!

To try it out, just follow the instructions sheet

Let the Service Center know about your experience. Email comments to kinseyb@sou.edu.
