Answer Keys

Answer sheets are available in multiple sizes and formats to meet different teacher needs. For general use, use the PDF version. The PNG versions are useful for customizing or importing into other documents. For best scanning results, print on standard white copier paper.

Answer Keys - Use Once or Multiple Times

  • ZipGrade will only grade the questions that have an answer defined on the key. Percentages are based on this same number. You can create any size quiz of up to 100 questions. And the 'active' questions can be anywhere on the answer sheet.
