Managing sections or multiple versions of an exam

Managing sections

If you wish to administer an exam to multiple sections while keeping the student lists, grading and administration separate, we recommend the following workflow (this example is for two sections but can be modified to accommodate any number):

  1. Create two Crowdmark assessments, one for each section.
    If the assessment template and questions are the same you can duplicate the first assessment by clicking the Create assessment button in the course and selecting Duplicate existing.
  2. Include only the first section in the first assessment and only the second section in the second assessment.
  3. Administer the exam, then scan the pages.
  4. After scanning, you can save time by uploading all of the pages to one of the assessments (Section 1, for example). Pages belonging to the other version (Section 2) will automatically be routed to Section 2.
    Note: You will need to have a role with upload permissions in each assessment.

Managing versions

If you wish to create multiple versions of an exam, we recommend the following workflow (this example is for two versions but can be modified to accommodate any number):

  1. Create two versions of the template file.
  2. Create two Crowdmark assessments and include all of your students in both versions.
  3. Since you included all of your students in both versions, Crowdmark will generate twice the number of booklets that you will need. Print half of the generated exam booklets from each version (plus any extras you might need).
  4. Administer the exam, then scan the pages.
  5. After scanning, you can save time by uploading all of the pages to one of the assessments (Version A, for example). Pages belonging to the other version (Version B) will automatically be routed to Version B.
    Note: You will need to have a role with upload permissions in each assessment.
