Preparing Tests for Scoring

  • To submit tests for scoring, please place student response documents, answer key, andTest Scoring Cover Sheet in a manila envelope. Please seal the manila envelope.
  • The Test Scoring Cover Sheet is very important and you must complete this form in its entirety so that the scanner can provide you with the reports you request.
  • The Test Scoring Cover Sheet is available in the Testing Center and can be downloaded at the link below.
  • Detailed step-by-step directions on how to fill out the test scoring form are found on the back of the Test Scoring Cover Sheet.
  • If you have tests for different sections, please separate them by section.
  • Be sure that students have filled in proper ID bubbles and test version if there are 2 or more key versions. The ID number must remain consistent to the student throughout the semester. The ID number for all students must be the 8 digit A-State ID number. ID numbers must be "bubbled in" on every exam throughout the semester.
  • Be sure that bubbles are filled in dark and completely and that ONLY pencils are used (felt markers and ink pens cannot be read by the scanner).

Score Reports

  • The item-analysis report, roster report, and sub-test report can be sent electronically to the instructor of record if indicated on the Test Scoring Cover Sheet.
  • If electronic score reports are requested, all reports will be sent through a secure file sharing system called "ShareSpace" where the instructor will have 48 hours to download the reports.
  • Notification of electronic files ready for downloading will be sent to University email addresses only.
  • Scored exams and reports will be returned in a sealed envelope. 
  • Other score reports, such as the score distribution report, class response report, and individual student test reports are available in paper format only. These must be picked up by either the instructor of record or a courier.
  • A University employee working on the behalf of the instructor of record can serve as a courier. Couriers must present their A-State ID when dropping off and picking up exams and score reports. The following are examples of approved couriers:
    • Administrative assistants
    • Graduate assistants
