Offline assessments (OAs) are any kind of work done outside of Yacapaca, for which you want to record the grades within Yacapaca.

Why use Offline Assessments?

  • Instant feedback (grade and your comment) to students; they don't have to wait to see you at the next lesson. A long wait for feedback is notoriously demotivating.
  • Add more data to the Gradebook, so you can see trends and averages more clearly.
  • Produce more convincing Parents' Reports.
  • Calibrate your Gradebook so it converts quiz percentages to grades more accurately for your students (this is an automatic feature of OAs).
