The preferred process is to scan your answer sheets in our North Campus offices (5 Norton Hall) using our high-speed scanner. This will ensure the best possible scan of your answer sheets.
The most common errors when scanning are shifted, rotated, scaled or washed out pages. All of these errors can be the result of improper scanning, printing or handling.
An improperly printed answer sheet (printed at less than 100 percent, rotated, printed too lightly or photocopied) cannot be improved through the process of scanning.
Answer sheets that have been damaged because of stapling, folding, tearing and dog-earring can make feeding answer sheets into the scanner difficult. Flattening bent or folded paper and jogging papers so the sheets are nicely aligned will help with scanner feeding and scan quality.
If your test is a Unique test (see Scoring Project Types), place the completed bubble sheet answer key as the first answer sheet in your stack of answer sheets to scan.
If you have an Advanced or Multiple Version test then you will be submitting your answer key using our eTemplates and will only need to scan the student answer sheets.
Set up your scanner.
Scans with the problems shown below cannot be processed and will be returned for hand scoring.
