Introduction to Akindi

Akindi is a web based assessment system that automates the creation and grading of multiple choice examinations. If you have used Remark, then you are familiar with a system that uses a paper-based system to administer a test, that includes both multiple choice and True/False questions. Akindi is very similar to Remark, but greatly improves some of the steps that are used in Remark.
