At IUB, what is DigitalDesk and how do I access it?

On this page:


Overview

DigitalDesk streamlines the review of results from scanned paper-based exam forms for instructors at Indiana University Bloomington.

As an instructor, you will continue to submit exam forms and answer keys to Bloomington Evaluation Services and Testing (BEST) for scanning. After BEST has uploaded the results into DigitalDesk, you can review student scores using DigitalDesk's comprehensive exam analysis reports, such as standard deviation, Cronbach's alpha, and distractor analysis, among others.

DigitalDesk gives you several ways to analyze and manage your exams, allowing you to:

  • Rescore exams, and add bonus points to all exams or to individual student response sheets.
  • Review student responses, make corrections to responses or demographic information, and assign different answer keys post-scanning.
  • Run reports on all or individual student responses, and generate custom exportable reports you can distribute to your students via email or use to transfer grades to Canvas.

Accessing DigitalDesk

To access DigitalDesk:

  1. Go to Scanning Results: Digital Desk in One.IU, and click Start.
  2. Log into CAS using your IU username and passphrase; this requires Two-Step Login (Duo).
  3. You'll see the DigitalDesk "Instructor Tools" dashboard. This dashboard displays the status of exams processed the current day, as well as messages from the system administrator.
