This solution rocks!!!  I am pretty sure the teachers will love it…


July 20, 2011 – Kyocera, one of the world’s leading document solutions companies, today announced the availability of Kyocera Teaching Assistant, a very affordable test creation, grading and analysis solution designed to streamline classroom workflow and boost student achievement.

Kyocera Teaching Assistant, an internally-developed optional add-on powered by HyPAS, simplifies the task of printing, collecting and analyzing multiple-choice test results using bubble-sheet forms. Designed as an embedded solution on select HyPAS-enabled Kyocera multifunctional products (MFP), Teaching Assistant drives classroom efficiency without requiring network resources, IT support, server software or PC connection. Teachers simply access Teaching Assistant on the Kyocera MFP and automatically create, print, scan, grade and analyze students’ multiple-choice test scores.  Teaching Assistant will prepare analytical and graphical reports, with an option to print, e-mail or save the results to a USB flash drive, reducing paper, toner and energy consumption.  The application requires only standard paper to generate the bubble sheets and can also calculate a percentile score and chart how each student fared when compared with the class as a whole.
