For faculty: Test scoring available from IT Services

Here it is, your friendly reminder: IT Services offers free test scoring!

For those faculty members who use Scantron sheets for their exams, we provide an automated, convenient test scoring service with 24- to 48-hour turnaround times.

One of the other benefits of taking advantage of this service is that there are multiple locations to drop off test materials:

  • Hughes Hall (drop box on west side - morning pickup daily)
  • Hoyt Hall
    • Drop slot on north side
    • Drop box in lobby on the south side (near the parking lot)
    • Second floor reception area

And when scoring is finished, there is a website where you can log in and retrieve your students’ results.

How does it work?

For a full list of comprehensive guidelines, including information about how to structure exams so they can be read by optical scanners, please visit the Electronic Test Scoring Guide. Here are a few key takeaways:

  1. Cover Forms: Any faculty member who wishes to take advantage of the test scoring service needs to include a Cover Form with the testing materials. To download the necessary cover pages, please see the Service Catalog.
    • Optional step: Include scrambler forms with your materials.
  2. Dropoff: Make sure you include answer sheets and the cover forms, and deposit the exams in one of the convenient locations listed above.
  3. Retrieval: Log in with your Miami ID and password to the test scoring site. There, you can download the results from your students’ exams.

Important: Please be aware that your test score files will be removed after 30 days, so it’s recommended that you retrieve these files as soon as possible.

See you on the other side of exam week!

New look, same results

Recently, IT Services converted the test score summary page from Coldfusion to PHP7. That’s another way of saying that things look a little different - the update changed the appearance of the test score summary page where faculty retrieve the raw data of their students’ scores.

However, don’t fret: The information has not changed at all, only the way it’s presented.
