Akindi Bubble Sheet Training

Learn how to implement the paper-based assessments



Date & Time

September 28, 2022, 12:00 pm1:00 pm


This training is provided by Akindi

As we return to the physical classroom, many faculty are planning to employ paper-based assessments during their synchronous class sessions. Akindi is UMBC's tool whereby faculty download bubble sheets, print them from any local printer, and scan results into any local scanner. This session will review all of the administrative functions to properly deploy paper-based assessments. 

This training is recommended for all faculty that plan on deploying paper-based assessments in their courses and have not previously used Akindi. 


By the end of this session, faculty should be able to:
  • Create an Akindi assessment in their Blackboard course shell
  • Add an answer key to an assessment
  • Generate, download, and print PDF Akindi bubble sheets for distribution. 
  • Upload completed bubble sheets into an Akindi assessment 
  • Mitigate errors and flags from assessments that may need manual review (e.g., bubbling two responses, missing ID).
  • Locate the scores of Akindi assessments in Blackboard
  • Review bubble sheet analytics 
  • Return the scanned, electronic bubble sheet to students
