“Paper based submission” is a premium feature available in Edulastic where teachers or admins can allow students to take the test on paper.
When you select 'Answer on Paper' as 'Yes', students can take the test either online or on paper.
After the assignment is closed (due date passes or you close it manually), you can add the scores of student(s) who took the assignment on paper.
This option is set to “No” by Default.
You can find the option in the assignment details page as shown below:
Please NOTE: If teacher/admin sets the option as Yes, student will NOT be marked as Absent even if the due date has passed or assignment is closed. It will mark the student as “Submitted”. Teachers can then score all the students.
