Educators are always balancing budgets with the needs of their students. Keeping material costs low while not compromising the education of young people requires intellect and foresight. To help combat these issues, Kyocera has developed a tool to help with grading bubble sheet forms.
What is Teaching Assistant?
Working in the educational field means dealing with a lot of paperwork. Part of dealing with paperwork is grading tests. If you’ve ever graded a test done on a bubble sheet form, you know how excruciatingly long it can take to grade manually. This is where the Kyocera multifunction printer comes into play.
The Teaching Assistant app runs on the Kyocera multifunction printer prints bubble sheet forms and once scanned back on the device, grades them. There is no additional software to install on your computer; it’s all done on the Kyocera device. This app allows teachers to focus on students and lesson delivery instead of spending time grading tests.
How to Use Teaching Assistant
The details of the app are comprehensive. If you need to figure out which questions were the easiest and which were the most difficult, Teaching Assistant delivers analytics to help educators identify strengths and weaknesses. The app can integrate with Microsoft Word 2010 or higher and incorporate essay questions into tests. Finally, test information is secure. Teaching Assistant clears data from the multifunction printer after every test.
Benefits for Educators
The Kyocera device prints bubble sheet forms on regular paper. There is no need to purchase anything special. You can leave dedicated scanning systems and pre-printed sheets behind and minimize costs. Teaching Assistant is also sustainable because you can export test scores directly to email. This allows you to cut out printing costs as well as reduce paper waste.
