Akindi – A Scantron Alternative
Akindi is a web-based assessment system that automates the creation and grading of multiple choice examinations. It is accessible through Canvas and it uses your departmental copy machine to scan and score bubble-forms. The use of Akindi is centrally funded.
Akindi allows you to:
Sync with your Canvas class roster to create personalized answer sheets
Print your answer sheets on plain paper from any printer (4 cents a page instead of 27 cents for Scantron forms)
Sort multiple sections and test versions electronically after scanning rather than physically doing so beforehand
Scan the completed answer sheets on any document scanner
Upload a pdf of scanned forms or, if scanner has email capability, send the pdf directly to Akindi
Handle changes to the key, multiple correct answers, and differential item weighting online
Review student performance and item analysis results online
Sync the exam grades with your Canvas grade book and email students their grades
