Marking Paper Practices, Exercises, Tests and Diagnostic Tests

Online assignments are marked automatically as students complete them in the software. For paper assignments, teachers or students have many marking options:

  • If students enter their answers on a scan card, the student or teacher can insert the card into an AccelScan scanner for automatic marking. The Marking preference determines whether students can mark their own exercises and tests in the AccelScan software's Pupil Mode.

  • Students can log in to the software and select their answer for each problem on their paper assignments.

    If Renaissance Home Connect is available, students may also be able to mark practices and exercises from home when they open Accelerated Maths from within Renaissance Home Connect. The class Renaissance Home Connect preference sets whether marking from home is allowed. (Renaissance Home Connect and the Renaissance Home Connect preference are not available for all schools or school networks.)

  • If students use Renaissance Responders or NEO 2 to enter their answers, Accelerated Maths marks the responses automatically. The Renaissance Responder or NEO 2 can always be used to complete practices; the Marking preference determines whether students can also use them to complete exercises and tests.

  • Teachers can mark assignments in the Accelerated Maths software by manually entering students' answers.

Assisted-response (multiple-choice) assignments can be marked using any of the methods. If you choose free-response problems, students will not be able to mark their own assignments by scanning within the AccelScan software's Pupil Mode; however, teachers can mark "A" for correct answers and "B" for incorrect answers on the scan cards and scan them when Pupil Mode is not selected. Free-response assignments can also be marked by keyboard entry; however, students cannot complete them using the Renaissance Responder, NEO 2 or Renaissance Home Connect.

After you mark a paper assignment, Accelerated Maths automatically generates a TOPS Report. Be sure you review this with your student. You can re-mark paper assignments if necessary.
