Create Answer Keys, Question Maps and Outcomes Maps

The type of keys and maps you will create for your scoring job will depend on the type of test and formats of the questions.

Bubble Sheet Answer Key

This option is only for Unique Tests with Single-Answer questions.

If you have a Unique Test with Single-Answer questions, submit your answer key by filling out a bubble sheet with the correct answer for each question. Label that sheet “Answer Key” and place it on the top of your stack of answer sheets prior to scanning.

eTemplates

UB Scoring Services has created two desktop applications to simplify the process of creating answer keys, question maps and learning outcomes maps.

These eTemplates help you avoid problems with question formatting, mapping errors and file structure.

The following conditions require you to use eTemplates to create an answer key, question map and/or outcomes map:

  • If you have a Unique Test and incorporate Multiple-And questions or Multiple-Or questions, you will need to create an answer key using the Answer Key eTemplate app and select "Advanced" in Scoring Job Details.
  • If you have a Multiple Version Test, you will need to create an answer key using the Answer Key eTemplate app and select "Multiple Version" in Scoring Job Details. Your question map will be created within the app.
  • If you will be using learning outcomes, you will need to create an outcomes map using the Outcomes Map eTemplate app.

If you are unable to install the eTemplates on your computer, you can create answer keys, question maps and outcomes maps using a text editor.

We highly recommend that you contact your IT support to have the eTemplates installed as soon as possible.
