Test Scoring

Test Scoring services are offered to members of the UIC faculty.  Instructors may request Scantrons and exam scoring in the Office of Testing Services Room 1086.   Walk-in accepted during scoring hours however appointments are preferred.

Faculty members must provide test questions on a separate sheet of paper at the time of the exam.  The Scantron answer sheets do NOT contain space to have questions printed on them.  Scantron forms must also be completed using a #2 pencil.

Faculty members will supply a “key” Scantron sheet when bringing in answer sheets and they must indicate the correct answer to each item.  The key and the completed answer sheets are processed via the scanner to obtain the test scores.

NOTE: ONLY Scantron answer sheets provided by the Test Scoring office may be used.  Sheets from other sources are NOT compatible with our scanner.

Test Analysis and Reports

Once exam answer sheets are scanned, the scores are processed through a statistical software package and the results are provided in two standard reports.

  1. Student Statistics Report— this report provides the exam total score in an alphabetical roster format (by student last name), as well as the Mean for the exam scores.
  2. Condensed Test Report— this item analysis report which includes the following statistics/information such as Total Students/Points, Standard Deviation, Median/Mean Score, Reliability Coefficient (KR20), Maximum/Minimum Score, Range of Scores, Response Frequencies (by item), Non Distractor, Correct Group Response (Total %, Upper 27%, Lower 27%) and Point Biserial.

Score data can also be saved to a USB drive (must be brought in with exams) or uploaded to the Office of Testing Services Blackboard portal.

Final Exam Scoring

Due to the overwhelming number of exams scored during finals week, an appointment is REQUIRED for exam scoring.  You may contact the Test Scoring office to make an appointment.  Appointments are scheduled on a first-come/first-served basis.

Research Projects, Surveys, and Evaluations

The scanner can transfer data collected on the Scantron forms to your personal flash drive. This eliminates time-consuming, manual data-entry for research data, surveys, and evaluations. There is a charge for this service. Contact the Test Scoring office for pricing.
