How do I print assessments for students to complete?

Buzz makes it easy to print and track unique assessments for students.

There are various reasons you may want to allow students to complete an assessment using paper, including meeting specific Accommodations like an Individualized Education Program (IEP) aligned with the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA).

With some systems, printing an assessment means losing the ability to track student attempts, randomize questions, and take advantage of automated test analytics that an LMS provides.

Buzz's assessments allow you to offer a printed option without losing these benefits.

Grade printed assessments

To grade printed assessments when they are returned:

  1. Open the Performance/Gradebook tool from the Main Menu.
  2. Select the assessment, and click Submit Answers in the toolbar.

Is it possible to use the grouping function to print an assessment? For example, if I have a group of IEP students who always have their tests printed as part of their accommodations, can the grouping function be used to quickly print just to this group every time (rather than having to select them every time I want to print)?

Hi Gideon! That's a great idea! Unfortunately it is not supported in Buzz at this time.
