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.
Visit Scoring Online Constructed Response/Short Answer/Writing Prompt Items to review how to score online Item Bank, Answer Key Only, and Express assessments set up with the Student as the Intended User of the assessment.
