How do I print assessments for students to complete?

There are various reasons you may want to allow students to complete an assessment using paper, including meeting specific Accommodations like an Individualized Education Program (IEP) aligned with the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA).

With some systems, printing an assessment means losing the ability to track student attempts, randomize questions, and take advantage of automated test analytic that an LMS provides.

Echo's assessments allow you to offer a printed option without losing these benefits.

Grade printed assessments

To grade printed assessments when they are returned:

  1. Open the Performance/Gradebook tool from the Main Menu.
  2. Select the wrench from the toolbar and click on Enter printed-assessment answers.
  1. Select the student whose assessment you want to grade.
  2. Make sure the version number is correct and enter the answers from the printed assessment into the appropriate fields.
  3. Click Submit, Echo automatically grades the assessment, and a checkmark appears next to the student.
