Akindi – A Scantron Alternative


After a very successful pilot, OIT is rolling out Akindi to score Scantron-like exams. To use it, you or your students first print blank answer sheets on a standard printer. You then batch scan the completed answer sheets on your departmental copier/scanner and upload them to Akindi for scoring. The grades will go straight into Canvas. 

  1. Score Exams Anytime: score your exams 24/7 from any copier or scanner
  2. Change Your Key: with a few clicks, no need to re-scan! 
  3. Save Time: no more walking to Greve Hall 
  4. Save Your Department Money: your department no longer has to pay for Scantron services  
  5. Save Your Students Money: students no longer need to purchase scantron forms
  6. Integrate with Canvas: your roster goes into Akindi, the grades come right back to Canvas! 
  7. No More ID Hassles: pre-printed student forms can contain names & ID numbers
