TEST SCANNING


Information required on student scan sheets before they can be processed


All scan sheets should be filled in with pencil. The scanner cannot read ink.
The scanner is very sensitive to erasures.

A student’s test should have their name bubbled in the NAME field on their answer scan sheet and their UTA student ID number bubbled in the IDENTIFICATION NUMBER field on their answer scan sheet. If neither their name nor ID field is bubbled on their answer scan sheet, the student’s scan sheet will be rejected by the scanner and returned to the instructor ungraded.

Information on how to fill out a key sheet for a test

All scan sheets should be filled in with pencil. The scanner cannot read ink.
The scanner is very sensitive to erasures.  

One and only one key sheet should be completed for each set of scan sheets that should be processed as a unit.

Every key sheet should have the following information bubbled in the NAME field on the sheet: The word KEY should be bubbled in the first 3 columns followed by a space and then the INSTRUCTOR’s LAST NAME should be bubbled in the following columns of the NAME field. This is the only information that needs to be bubbled in on the key sheet other than the correct responses for the test.

If each question has only one correct response, that response should be bubbled in the appropriate row.

Example 1:  Completed key sheet when all questions have a single correct answer

If there is more than one correct response for a question, all correct responses for a question should be bubbled in the same row on the same key sheet.

Example 2: Completed key sheet when some questions have more than one correct response

If any single response is to be considered correct for a question, then all answers should be bubbled in for that question in the same row on the same key sheet.

Example 3: Completed key sheet when some questions have any one of the single responses to the question as correct

If a question is to be omitted from the test, the appropriate row corresponding to that question should be left blank on the key sheet. That question will than not be used in computing student test scores.
