Creating an assessment

You can create two kinds of assessments in Crowdmark: Administered and Assigned.

The Administered assessment allows an instructor to create paper exams, tests, or assignments that are written by students and then scanned into Crowdmark for evaluation.

The Assigned assessment empowers an instructor to deliver assessments to students electronically with a due date and provides students with methods to enter or upload their responses for evaluation on Crowdmark.

All students and team members are included in an assessment by default but you can include or exclude specific students, sections or team members.
