Step 1

Using one of the templates below, print out the appropriate number of tests that you need for your class: *
Note: Please use normal, multipurpose paper. The forms below are dated 4/22/2014.

   
Step 2

Have your students take the test - using #2 pencils - and instruct them to completely fill in the bubbles:




Have your students double-check for (and correct) multiple marks, and to fill in ONLY the "Last Name", "First Name", "Identification #" and question response fields. The "Identification #" field must be filled in, and must be left justified. Use the Student ID for the Identification #. If any of these fields are filled in incorrectly it may lead to delays in exam scoring.

The answer key should use the same test question template.

Fill the test questions with the right answers (Names and IDs fields are not necessary).

Place the key on the top of the answers pile – as it needs to be very first page (the order is 1) the answer key and then 2) the students' answer keys.)
   
Step 3

Use your department's Multi-Function Device (MFD) to scan the tests into a digital format; then send the resulting PDF file to your own email mailbox/account.

Be sure to:

  • Scan the tests using the Black and White 300 x 300 DPI setting (for a higher resolution)
  • Use PDF as the file format
  • Feed the exams into the MFD in a LANDSCAPE format like this:

 

Be sure to scan in the exams in the LANDSCAPE format!

 

 

   
Step 4

Login to Microsoft Outlook (i.e. your email mailbox) and confirm that:

  • All of the tests scanned in properly
  • All of your students' exams are accounted for
   
Step 5

Visit the Audio Visual Department (HH226) in order to use the new Remark Office OMR Software from Gravic to grade the tests yourself. Once at the test scanning PC, log into your Microsoft Outlook email account, find the email again that has the PDF file (i.e. the one that contains all of the test scans) and download it to the desktop.

Use these instructions to open up that file and grade the exams.

Step 6

Run the required reports

NOTE: If you want to export the data, the supported formats are:

  • PDF
  • HTML
  • TIF
  • TEXT
  • RTF
  • XLS

 

Benefits of the new Gravic Remark Office OMR software include:


  • The ability to print out the appropriate test sheets within your own department to normal, multipurpose paper (i.e. you no longer have to obtain those specialized, more expensive bubble sheets from CIT)
  • The ability to scan the completed exams using a MultiFunction Device (MFD) within your own department and grade the exams yourself
  • Calvin realizes significant cost savings by no longer having to purchase specialized paper and from not having to purchase insurance for the Scantrons
  • A full range of reports, including several highly visual/graphical reports as well as other advanced reports
  • The ability to export the data and statistics to other programs
