In Ans, you can create and use different assignment types. You can choose between individual and group assignments.
A digital test is an assignment type that is created online and allows for students to take the test either remotely or on location. Digital tests offer a wide range of features, like randomisation and parametrisation of questions and the ability to run live code during the test. Ans also offers a wide range of integrations with third-party software to ensure that digital tests can be conducted more securely, no matter where the test takes place.
In addition to the standard review method, a digital test can also be peer-reviewed or self-reviewed. There is also an option to create digital tests for groups, which enables students to take a digital test as a group.
- Peer-reviewed digital test
With the peer-reviewed digital test, students will grade tests of other students. This can be helpful in the learning cycle of your students and is often used for practice assignments.
- Self-reviewed digital test
With the self-reviewed digital test, students will grade their own tests. This can help students understand their own mistakes and learn from them. This assignment type is often used for practice assignments.
- Digital test for groups
This type of test enables students to take a digital test as a group. Students can work together simultaneously on the test and see live changes from their group members. The test is submitted by one group member for the whole group.
A written assignment is an assignment that is created digitally and can be printed for students to take offline on location. The administration of the assignment will take place on paper and once students are finished with their assignment, the printed documents can be scanned and uploaded back into Ans. The uploaded assignments can then be reviewed digitally in Ans.
A hand-in assignment is an assignment type where students are required to upload one or more files. This type can be used for assignments such as papers, essays and theses. It’s possible to enable plagiarism checks on the results of the students. Students can upload the following files: zip, pdf, png, jpg, jpeg, xls, xlsx, csv, txt, py, mp4, mp3.
There is also an option to create hand-in assignments for groups, which enables students to hand-in an assignment as a group.
- Hand-in assignment for groups
Just like the digital test for groups, the hand-in assignment for groups is meant to stimulate cooperation between students. One person in the group hands in the assignment which will be graded for the whole group.
A bubble sheet is an answer form for paper-based multiple-choice exams. Students can answer the question by colouring the answer of their choice. The exam questions are not included in the bubble sheet exam, they need to be printed separately.
The appraisal form is ideal for assessing a skill or attitude in practice. Think of an oral, presentation, or practical assignment. During or after the performance of the assignment by your student, you can add your feedback to the appraisal form.
