GradeCam does not like blank questions – especially blank grid questions on the math common assessments. If a bubble form is not scanning, bubble in a zero on the grid questions. This should make scanning easier.
Perform a test scan before giving answer sheets to students. Read below to find out why.
When printing answer sheets, choosing to shrink the answer sheet can affect Gradecam’s ability to scan and read scores.
When printing answer sheets, different browsers render the sheets slightly differently, so you may need to try printing from a different browser if you have difficulty scanning sheets.
The amount of light in the room can affect the ability of the Gradecam to scan. Try closing blinds and/or adjusting the overhead lights.
Some pencil leads can be highly reflective, causing Gradecam Go to have difficulty scanning scores. Try going over answers with a black sharpie.
