The PowerScan app can be downloaded for free through the online Apple Store or GooglePlay.
Open the PowerScan app on your device, and click on “Start Grading” to begin. You will want to hover your device over the bubble sheet until the PowerSchool “P” logo registers over the bubble sheet QR code. Once it registers, then the student’s selected answers will appear on the right-hand side of the screen. If the scan was unable to pick it up, the app will circle any blank answer options, and you can fill in the blank with the student’s answer, or leave them blank if they are also blank on the student's sheet. Once everything looks correct, you can click the check mark symbol.
WHEN AND WHY IS THIS FEATURE USED?
If bubble sheets need to be manually scanned due to some error such as light bubbles, marks in the margins, etc., then you can use the PowerScan app. It can also be used when answers need to be transferred from one bubble sheet to another, in instances of printing errors.
Who can manually scan?
Any user with access to the app
ANY ADDITIONAL INFORMATION
If you need to re-scan the bubble sheet, you will need to “ungrade” it first.
