Aware Teacher Basics Testing And Data Analysis

  1. 1. Basic Teacher Tasks in Aware<br />Part 2: Testing and Data Analysis<br />
  2. 2. Printing Answer Documents<br />If the “Test Available” button appears at the top of the classes list, then a teacher MAY print the answer documents for a class.<br />Some campuses prefer to have the assessment coordinator print ALL the answer sheets, others may want teachers to do that.<br />
  3. 3. To Print: <br />Click on the “Test Available” button<br />Select the class period<br />Click the “Print Answer Sheets” button in the lower, right-hand corner.<br />Note: If you do NOT have the “Print Answer Sheets” button, then teachers have not been given the rights to print answer sheets for this particular test.<br />“Printing” in Eduphoria actually opens up a PDF document first. This is nice, because it allows the user to verify what they want to print is correct before actually sending it to the printer.<br />Teachers can print all or select only the pages they want to print.<br />
  4. 4. Each answer sheet is coded for the name of the student, the teacher, the course, or the test.<br />Check the name of the test and make sure the answer sheet matches the test that is being given.<br />
