ExamScan converts hand-written and graded exams and assignments to digital form. It allows instructors to return exams electronically rather than having students pick up the hardcopies. It is especially useful for large classes. ExamScan is for instructors who are not using online exam or assignment formats. It does not create bubble test forms. ExamScan uses Box to store scanned exams. Please note that ExamScan is not integrated with Canvas.
Background Barcodes serve a simple purpose: when exams are scanned the barcodes tell the scanning software both that a new student’s exam has started and which student it is. The barcode itself is nothing more than a special font; the text in the font consists of an asterisk, an all-caps uniqname and an asterisk (e.g., *studenta*).
