There are TWO options for grading Bubble Sheet Assessments
Option 1: Individually scanning each one via webcam (best for a smaller number of sheets)
Option 2: Creating a PDF file of all student bubble sheets, then dragging/dropping that file into GradeCam (best for a large number of sheets)
Read below regarding details for both options
Option 1: Individually Scanning
Step 1: Activate GradeCam by clicking on the Bubble Sheet Assessment in your Assigned Assessments. This is what you should see:
Step 2: Hold up bubble sheet in the center of the screen. You will see a green box surrounding the test when it has been captured. Once it has been graded, you will hear a "Blip" noise and the grade will be shown at the bottom.
If GradeCam is having trouble capturing your forms, please visit the article below for some troubleshooting tips!
Step 3: Grading Rubric-Style Questions
You can either:
- Fill in the appropriate score bubble on the bubble sheet before scanning
- Click on their name after their sheet has been scanned and select the appropriate score bubble for that question.
Option 2: Drag-and-Drop PDF
- Scan all answer sheets from all classes into a single PDF file (usually via the school copy machine). Note: The file needs to be scanned in GRAYSCALE and not black and white.
- Activate the GradeCam screen.
- Drag-and-drop the PDF into the GradeCame screen, and it will begin scoring (don't worry: Otus and GradeCam will organize the student's scores into the correct classes)!
*Note: You may see some yellow notifications saying only students from the selected course are being scanned into the class you have selected - this is a good thing!
- Repeat with any additional classes.
*IF YOU CHANGED THE GRADING SCALE OF A RUBRIC QUESTION - PLEASE READ BELOW*
GradeCam will calculate the total percentage based on the original grading scale, not the new grading scale. See example below:
GradeCam will still calculate the grade based on the 0, 1, 2, 3 grading scale, BUT, the Otus Gradebook WILL calculate based on the 0, 2, 4, 6 grading scale.
What this means for you: Know that if you change the grading scale of a rubric question, GradeCam will not display the correct total percentage, but the Otus Gradebook WILL display the correct total percentage. This is a GradeCam limitation, rather than an Otus limitation.
