Let's Scan

For this section I will be switching back to the iPhone app now because my computer doesn't have a webcam, but if you want to continue using a PC and a webcam that is perfectly okay.

Once the app is opened, make sure you are in the appropriate Quiz first.

This allows you to see the spread of the percentile scores of all students.
