Test Scanning: Multiple Choice and Short Answer Exams

Instructional Development strongly encourages faculty who want to conduct in-person multiple choice and/or short answer exams to use GradeScope bubble sheets. You'll create your exam as usual, download the Gradescope bubble sheet template and print it with the exam to distribute to students. You’ll be able to scan students’ tests and bubble sheets using any scanner (in your department or in 1124 Kerr Hall - email to make an appointment), and then upload it to Gradescope’s online interface for automatic scoring. After scoring, Gradescope produces analysis and allows for regrading and commenting.
