Teaching Assistant

Our nation's educational system is under continuous pressure to find new and innovative ways to improve teacher performance and student achievement while reducing cost.

These initiatives are not unique to school districts. Every enterprise, from public and private schools to large corporations, must become more efficient. To assist in these mission critical initiatives Kyocera has developed Teaching Assistant, a business application, powered by HyPAS that transforms your Kyocera MFP into an on-demand test grading and analysis hub.

Specifically, Teaching Assistant simplifies the task of printing, collecting and analyzing multiple-choice test results using popular bubble-sheet forms. With Teaching Assistant, the MFP does the work allowing educators to concentrate on the students themselves, instead of the time-consuming, error-prone process of manual test grading.

Designed as an embedded application that runs on the MFP, Teaching Assistant does not require network resources or IT support because there is no server software to install or PC to connect – everything is managed directly from the MFP touchscreen. Teachers and support staff enjoy intuitive walk-up access, where an unlimited number of bubble sheets are printed. After the forms are completed by the students, and scanned by Teaching Assistant, test scores and associated reports are immediately available; there’s no wait! Comprehensive analytics even drill down to the 10 easiest and 10 most difficult questions, enabling educators to identify weaknesses, and gear classroom instruction accordingly.

Additionally, since Teaching Assistant runs on any HyPAS-enabled TASKalfa system, it uses economical plain paper to generate bubble sheets. Buying and stocking expensive pre-printed media is a thing of the past. And to further efficiency, Teaching Assistant allows users to forward test scores and reports directly to an e-mail address – reducing paper, toner and energy consumption.
