An offline test is a type of assessment that learner takes offline and an instructor enters the score and record it on Teamie. You can grade offline tests from the Teamie gradebook (Android) app. There are various options available for instructors to grade an offline test such as grading with rubric (scoring and non-scoring rubric) as well as an offline test with no rubric attached to it, i.e, numerical score. You can add evidence for an offline test for a learner by capturing image from your device's camera, by adding images from device gallery or by attaching any file from your device.
