Digital Desk, the current solution for Scantron bubble sheets, will be decommissioned for fall 2024, and the Exam Scoring service will be replaced with Gradescope Bubble Sheets. If you are a current Digital Desk/Instructor Tools user, you can still use Digital Desk for the spring and summer 2024 semesters. The Copy Center will still be available to instructors to pick up Gradescope Bubble Sheets and scan exams.

Instructors can find upcoming training sessions on Gradescope Bubble Sheets by visiting the Upcoming Events page. If you have any questions or need assistance, please contact the ITS Help Desk.

Exam Scoring offers test scoring and analysis service for objective, multiple-choice examinations. The service provides high levels of reliability, accuracy, and security.

Exam Drop Off and Pick Up

Exams must be dropped off in person or in the secure lockbox located in 2500 UCC. The copy center is open Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays from 12 to 4 p.m. Scanned exams will not be returned through campus mail to protect student privacy/FERPA data.

Only the instructor or instructor-approved person (as indicated on the job ticket) can pick up the scanned exams, and they will be required to present their University ID card at the time of pick up.

The exam scoring job ticket has been updated as well.

Get started with Exam Scoring

An instructor gives an exam using the Scantron bubble sheets. Once completed, they complete the Exam Scoring Job Ticket, Exam Scoring Scramble Sheet (if any), and drop the answer key and student sheets off at the Copy Center located in 2500 UCC. The Copy Center scans the student sheets and sends the reports to the instructor or lets the instructor know the reports are ready in Instructor Tools.
