About Akindi at IU

On this page:


Akindi is an exam-scoring platform that is integrated with Canvas, allowing faculty and instructors to process student bubble-sheet exam forms without needing to use high-capacity scanners (for example, Scantron machines).

Prior to the exam, and using standard printers, instructors can print exam forms that are prepopulated with student identification information. Completed exam forms can then be scanned into a PDF document using regular scanners, and uploaded into the platforms for grading and reporting of results into Canvas. Faculty maintain control over the exam scoring process, which can lead to faster access to exam analytics, quick adjustment of exam keys, and planned release of grades through Canvas.

Indiana University is piloting Akindi to explore efficiencies for bubble-sheet exam scoring.
