1. Please make sure all students fill in the University ID portion of Scantron.
  2. Before submitting answer sheets for scoring, create a key for each form of the test. Be sure you use a #2 pencil to create your keys. Use the same answer sheet type as the test and indicate the correct response for each item. In the name field of the keys, leave the first column blank and then grid in “key”. This lets the scoring program know this is a key and not a student name. In the Test Form box on each key, grid in the appropriate form code.
  3. Don’t bend, staple, fold, or tear answer sheets.
  4. All answer sheets should be running in the same direction with the keys on top. If you have multiple forms, the keys should be in order (A, B, C, D).
  5. EES can score up to four forms of a single test. Unique forms are created by rearranging item order. With this format, items are scrambled intact and an test analysis is done across all forms. If you create unique forms by scrambling item options, you will need to manually sort the answer sheets by form and then each form will be scored separately.
  6. A scramble sheet is necessary (only) when you have multiple forms created by rearranging item order. If unique forms are created by scrambling item options, a scramble sheet does not apply. A copy of the scramble sheet to print and fill out is available below. The scramble sheet creates a map indicating where items are located (by number) on each form of the test. 
  7. ICON users should check to be sure the ID box for each student is filled out.  ICON will not work if the ID box is left blank.  When using ICON students must use their University ID.  
  8. Items on the test can have different point values. For example, items 1 – 10 might be worth two points, while items 11 – 30 are worth one point. 
  9. You may have more than one correct response for an item however, students can mark only one response on their answer sheet. If a student marks more than one response, it will be recorded as incorrect.
  10. Rosters sorted by section can be an alternative to a total alphabetical roster.
