Preparing for Test Scoring
  • When submitting your first exam/quiz/etc. of the semester/scoring period for scoring, be sure to submit a Test Scoring Request form, which may be found at the drop box locations on campus, on the Testing Services website or in the Testing Services Department.  It is not necessary to complete this form with each test submitted UNLESS significant changes are made from the previous Test Scoring Work Request form that is on file.
  • The green full-size scan form (A through F answer choice) or either of the blue half-sheet scan forms (A through E answer choice OR A through F answer choice) may be used for the first and subsequent tests.  The green full-size scan form is NO LONGER REQUIRED for the first test of the semester/scoring period.  If you run across the old green full-sheet scan form with the A through E answer choice, DO NOT USE!!  This form is obsolete and can no longer be read by the scanner/scoring software.  If you have questions regarding what form(s) to use, please contact the Test Scoring Coordinator at 424-0070.
  • Test keys should be labeled with test/quiz number and course number with section included.  Key(s) do not have to be bubbled in on the same type of scan form that the students are using for that test/quiz/etc.
  • If you are having tests scored for two or more sections of a course and would like separate rosters, please separate the scan forms by section.
  • If you are administering more than one version of an exam/quiz/etc., a key for each version should be provided. It is helpful to have scan forms separated by version, but not necessary. If separated, and if a student forgets to bubble in their version on the scan form, this helps the Test Scoring Unit personnel know what version key to use in scoring.
  • Check student forms to ensure students have filled in their ID number (7 digit ID from their Titan ID card) and have bubbled in corresponding ovals on their scan forms. If more than one version of the test is given, they should also have the appropriate version bubbled in on their scan form. Bubbles should be dark and complete using a #2 pencil (felt marking pens and ink pens cannot be read by the scanner software).
  • If you wish to have your results (Class Response, Item Analysis and Roster) shared to your One Drive, please check the appropriate box on the Test Scoring Work Request form and include your email address. A link will be emailed to you so that you may have easy access to all the electronic report files requested. Hard copies of all reports are also available, and may be picked up or couriered to your department.
  • Instructors should only bubble in the “exam number” section (green sheet) or the “instructor use” section (blue sheet) on their key IF they are scoring an essay exam or adding additional points to an exam/quiz/etc. Otherwise, please DO NOT USE these fields, as it may alter the student exam scores. Thank you!
