Test Scoring(25)

There are a wide variety of scoring options to choose from.  

    You can read more about each option by clicking on the appropriate link.

    Standard Exam

    One point per question.

    Exams with Multiple Versions

    This option allows you to process multiple versions of an exam in the same batch, providing one set of reports and one results file.

    Multiple Point Values

    This option allows you to assign different point values to questions on the exam (weighted questions).

    Formula Scoring

    This option allows you to penalize student for wrong answers. A student will receive the designated point value for a correct answer, but a fraction of the point value is deducted for an incorrect answer. If the student doesn’t respond to the question, there is no deduction.

    Bonus Questions

    This option allows you to identify up to six questions as bonus questions.

    Multiple Responses

    This option allows you to identify an exam that requires multiple responses. There are two types of multiple response options:

    • AND — Where the student responses must match ALL of the responses on the answer key exactly.
    • OR — Where the student must respond with ONE of the answers provided on the answer key.
    Subtests

    This option allows you to evaluate subtests—or learning objectives—on an exam by identifying questions for each learning objective. If questions 1 through 10 on your exam deal with learning objective A, 11-20 deal with learning objective B, 21-40 deal with learning objective C, and 41-50 deal with learning objective D, you can use subtests to obtain a score for each learning objective for each student. These scores are only available on the Student Statistics Report. On the individual Student Grade Report, only a total score is provided. Subtest scores are not included in the results file.


    Reports

    You will receive a link to retrieve the reports that are automatically produced with each set of exams.  Please note that some testing options will not produce all reports.  

    All available reports for your scoring selections will be generated and placed in a secure folder that only you can access. A link to this folder will be sent to you in your e-mail notification when the exam is completed. 

    Results File

    You will receive a results file in Excel format will be created for every exam that is processed. This file is placed in a secure folder that only you can access. A link to this folder will be sent to you in your e-mail notification when the exam is completed.

    Final Steps

    Attach the Test Scoring Request Form to the outside of the envelope.  Arrange the completed test scoring sheets in the envelope in this order:

    1. Test Header
    2. All answer key sheet(s) in numerical order
    3. Answer Sheets (GPAS)

    Once the sheets are in order, place them in the envelope and securely seal the flap. The envelope can then be taken to the IT Support Center.
