Test Scoring(24)

Bonus questions can be identified on an exam so that students will receive credit if a correct answer is received, but the question is not counted in the total possible points. If you have a 26-question exam with one bonus question, scores will be based on 25 possible points.

Please note that bonus questions cannot be identified for exams with multiple versions.

Administering the Exam

  1. No special steps are needed to administer the exam.

Preparing the Exam for Scoring

  1. Complete one test header sheet.
  2. Complete the answer key. If there are 26 questions on the exam, the student ID field on your answer key will show “1 26”.
  3. Complete the IUP Test Scoring Request Form/Envelope. Be sure to complete the bonus question section to indicate that “Q ___ has a bonus value of ____”. You can identify up to six bonus questions.
  4. Place the forms in the envelope in this order:
    • Test Header
    • Answer Key
    • Students’ General Purpose Answer Sheets
  5. Seal the envelope and deliver to the IT Support Center.
