Mastery Manager FAQ

Below is a basic guide for using Mastery Manager for logging in, creating new answer sheets, printing answer sheets, scanning sheets, and more.


  • General Assessment Reports are basic reports that do not rely on the questions being aligned to standards.
  • Learning Objective Reports – use the learning standards
  • Grades are not automatically put into PowerSchool. Grades can be exported into PowerSchool, but please make sure your list matches the PowerSchool roster. There must be blanks inserted for students who were absent.

Scanning Answer Sheets

  • Put sheets Head In & Face Down, and then click the scan button.
  • Do not stop scanning or close the window until all forms are showing in the sent box (lower box).
  • Scanners will not leave any marks or scores on the answer sheet.
  • To give students their scores, you will generate a report.

Printing Answer Sheets

  • For Mac Users
    • Use plain paper
    • Set page scaling to NONE or 100%
    • Uncheck options to AUTOROTATE & CENTER
  • Never copy answer sheets. All answers sheets are unique to each student, so they must always be printed or reprinted.
  • When possible, send answer sheets to Xerox copiers for printing.
    • Always print using the two-sided option to save on toner and ink.
  • Never staple answer sheets
  • Create 3 extra blanks answer sheets.

Guidelines for New Answer Sheets

To successfully setup Answer Sheets, please follow the guidelines below:

  • All answer sheets must have a unique name across the district. Please use the following naming convention to help simplify the process and create unique names. Any assessment not using the naming convention below will be deleted.
    • For Individual sections assessments:
      Course.Teacher Last Name.Assessment.School Year
    • Example:
    • For District Wide assessments:
      District.Teacher Last Name.Assessment.School Year
    • Example:
  • Questions should be aligned to standards whenever possible (new standards can be added as necessary).
  • Mastery Manager allows teachers to create an answer sheet to go with their existing tests and then receive reports from that data. Scanning is done on plain white paper.
