Many times, teachers want to see student work associated with their assessment. There are a few ways this can be done with Otus Advanced Assessments, including ways that are best for remote learning and in person learning. Below is a list of the options, followed by a link to the article that contains more detailed directions on how to use each.


Showing work with free-hand writing or typing directly into Otus on a per-item basis:

  • Question type: Highlight Image - provides work space directly within the item for free-hand writing or drawing.

  • Question type: Drawing - provides work space directly within the item that includes options like a line tool and protractor, as well as free-hand writing or drawing.

  • Question type: Math Essay (best for math assessments) - students are given space to type out their work using a wide variety of math symbols and operations.


Submitting an image of a work page used for the entire assessment:

  • Question type: File Upload - students can attach a picture of their work by uploading an image, or taking a live picture with their device's camera.

  • Question type: Image Annotation Upload - students can attach a picture of their work by uploading an image.


Physically turning in a work page used for the entire assessment (when taking the assessment in the classroom):

  • Use a pre-built work page - students can show their work on a work page designed for the specific assessment. They can then turn in the work page for the teacher to reference while grading the assessment.
