All candidate submissions in Inspera Assessment can be downloaded in PDF format and printed.

Note: All submissions will be downloaded from Grade, unless downloaded from Monitor, where selected candidate submissions can be selected.

Scroll down to Details and expand to find Submissions.


Click on All submissions as PDF to read all the deliveries, or click on Open to find and download deliveries of specific candidates.

Once you click All submissions as PDF, Print & Download Manager will be displayed. Here you can choose different settings based on how you want the submissions to be presented. The different options are described later in this article.


To download individual submissions, click on Open and select a candidate from the candidate list or use Filter on the top-right corner to find and select a specific candidate.

Download and print submissions from Monitor

In some cases you only want a few of the submissions downloaded at once. This can be achieved in the Monitor tool, which you have access to as a grader. Open Monitor from the top level, and search for the test name, candidate ID or use filters to get the selection. Mark the checkboxes next to the candidates you want to download the submission from, and choose Download and print from the menu at the bottom.

Other file types (Word, excel, anything that is not a PDF) will not be converted to PDF and cannot be merged. The files will still be downloaded when using this option.
