Test Scoring Services

Self-service Scantron test scoring equipment is located in the following buildings:

•Liberal Arts Building Rm 157, near the first floor lounge
•Kettler Hall, second floor, outside 234
•Neff Hall, second floor, near the stairwell and copy machine
•Science Building, in the faculty lounge across from 176

These machines are available whenever the buildings are open. No online request form is needed in order to use the self-service machines.

The appropriate forms for use with these self-service machines are:

  • X-101864-PAR-L
  • 882 (may have letters after the form number such as "-E" or "-N")

These forms are available for departmental purchase through Stores (260)481-6190.

Self-service test scoring will mark all answers in which the response was deemed incorrect and also provide you with the number of correct responses both as a total and/or percentage marked on each individual score sheet. No printed report is available from these machines. An additional form may be purchased to provide data analysis. See the CELT office for more information regarding these forms.

Test-scoring by Appointment in the CELT Office

With the acquisition of a new Scantron system, the test-scoring service in the CELT office has undergone many changes. Please pay special attention to the changes in the forms that can be used for this service.

Forms

The F-289-PAR-L forms are the only forms that can be processed using the system in the CELT office.

In the past, we have also been able to run the F-288-PAR-L forms as well as the X-101864-PAR-L forms in the CELT office. These forms are not compatible with the new system.

At this time, there is no form available that will run in both the CELT office machine and the self-service machines.

Requesting a Time for Processing

When leaving any job to be processed, you will need to complete a short online work request that allows CELT staff to schedule and track your order. It also provides CELT with the data it needs to determine future staff and equipment needs. You must complete the online work request and submit it prior to dropping off your order. While-You-Wait appointments should to be made 1 business day prior to the date and time of the requested processing time. Orders will be completed in no more than 1 business day unless other arrangements have been made.

When the CELT office is closed, jobs may be left at the ITS Helpdesk, which is open 7:30 am to 11 pm, Monday through Friday, Saturdays from 8 am to 6 pm, and Sundays from 12 pm to 10 pm. If you must leave your job at the Helpdesk, please be sure to package your forms and key in an envelope labelled with your name, department and phone number, and submit the online work request prior to dropping off your job in order to ensure prompt service.

Reporting of Results

Data analysis results include test response, item analysis, reliability coefficient, test item statistics, enhanced item analysis, score distribution, grade distribution, histogram of scores, and error log. These reports are provided electronically in PDF format, via email or to a flash drive/thumb drive that you provide at the time your forms are delivered for processing. A CSV file containing the student ID numbers and their corresponding scores will also be provided. 

For information related to our test scoring service, course evaluation service, and the various forms and procedures required, please contact Stephanie Stephenson, CELT Secretary, at (260)481-6354, or stop by Kettler 234.

Course Evaluations Processing

The transition for running course evaluations on the new system is well under way. It will be a multi-step process to allow time for the creation of documentation and training to be developed before the new system is deployed campus-wide. The timeline for completion of this transition will require the use of the current system (makedisk and the F-415-PAR-L forms) for the Fall 2013 and Spring 2014 semesters, with the goal of training all departmental secretaries trained on the new system bye the end of the 2014 Summer II session. 

If you are new to preparing and using this method of course evaluation, please speak with Stephanie Stephenson in the CELT office at
(260)481-6354 or by stop by the CELT office in Kettler Hall, 234 for detailed instructions.

Once your forms are ready to be processed, please complete the online work request form for course evaluations prior to delivering your forms to CELT.
