Scantron Test Scoring

Tags scantron

The Scantron software and hardware is used for computerized test scoring in I.T. Services. Instead of filling out a paper form at the IT Services counter, an on-line service request form must be filled out prior to coming to Operations Service Counter. Please record the ticket ID that is assigned to the request on the envelope that you submit as well as for your personal records. 

Scantron Sheet Requirements

For the test scoring sheets, in courses where the instructor uses multiple test versions, it is common that they have the students write the version of the test on the top corner of the sheet. It is necessary to stress that writing on the sheet is acceptable as long as nothing is written above the red bar of the red test Scantron sheets. This area is reserved for form definition marks. With past software and hardware, this was not a large issue, but with the new software and hardware, the increased sensitivity makes processing such red test sheets more difficult. Writing on the red test sheets is okay as long as it is below the red bar. 

Use No. 2 pencil only and fill in circles completely. If a student wants to change an answer when completing a test, they must erase the answer they provided completely and not simply put an X through it. If they simply put an X through a response and fill in another response, it requires Operator intervention, which defeats the whole purpose of Computerized Test Scoring.

Instructors must sign their name over the seal of any envelopes containing tests before leaving the forms with Operations. This allows Operations to be confident that the tests have not been tampered with and satisfies the concerns of academic integrity.
