Sale of answer sheets to departments ($0.12 each sold in packs of 500 – $80.00)

Scoring fee for test sets – UTS answer sheets ($20 each) – This charge applies to each test set scored when the answer sheets used are purchased from UTS. For example, the charge for scoring a test with 300 answer sheets in one test set is $20. The charge for scoring the same test with 300 answer sheets, but four test sets for four different versions is $80.00 for scoring the entire exam.

Standard Analysis Reports  – For each test set scored, UTS will email one Excel report with student names, UGA ID’s, raw score, and responses to questions. Additional reports can be emailed for an additional fee. Examples:

1. Individual Test Results report that includes student names, raw score, high score in class, low score in class, and median score. This report may be sorted by name or ID number.

2. Individual Item Response report that includes student name, raw score, and responses to each question on the exam.

3. Item Analysis report that allows users to analyze each question of a test and evaluate test difficulty.

4. Relative Frequency Distribution using a bar graph to allow users to quickly determine the percentage of students achieving particular raw scores for a test.

5. Test Score Distribution report that allows users to compare raw scores to various types of standard scores and distributions.

Forms and Instructions

Complete steps for using UTS scoring services

  • Use No. 2 pencil only.
  • Fill in the Identification # the Student ID beginning with 810 starting in column A. The last column can be left blank.
  • Make dark marks that completely fill the ovals.

The Answer Key is the form that identifies all of the correct answers for the questions on the test. The form is the same form used by students for their answer sheets.

Please write “Key” on the top of your answer sheet key.

A correct answer can be indicated in the following ways:
  • One Response Marked
    This mark is the only correct answer. Any answer other than the one marked is considered incorrect, including no response.
  • All Responses Marked
    Any response marked for this question is acceptable and considered correct. No response marked is considered incorrect.
  • No Response Marked
    The question is ignored. The answer is not marked correct or incorrect, and is not used in calculating the student’s score. Be sure not to include the question in the question count used in the Identification Number field.

In order for the scanner to correctly scan and score the test forms, the tests must be placed with the answer key on top of the student answer sheets. All sheets must be face up with all of the black tic ID marks facing the same direction. Bind the test together, or place it in a campus mailer, and bring the test to University Testing Services, Clark Howell Hall.

Below is a brief description of the types of reports that we offer. If you need more information on these reports please email and request an information packet on test reports.

The tests will be returned to the instructor along with reports:

  1. Individual Test Results – lists raw scores, percentages, and percentile for each individual taking the test.
  2. Individual Item Response Report – lists the answer key at the top of the page followed by the responses the student made to every test question. One sheet per student will be generated (to be handed back to the student) unless the test is a final exam.
  3. Item Analysis Report – provides an analysis of how the test population answered each test question. It displays the responses to each test question, the number of responses in the upper and lower quarters and total population, and the total percentages of responses for each answer. The Discrimination Index and Difficulty Factor for each response are listed as well as the Kuder Richardson 20 and Kuder Richardson 21 values for the entire test.
  4. Relative Frequency Distribution Report – provides a graphic representation of the percentage of the total test population that achieved each score. The report lists each test score, how many respondents achieved that score (frequency), the local percentile for each score, and a graph showing a set of asterisks each representing 2% of the test group.
  5. Absolute Frequency Distribution Report – provides a graphic representation of the number of respondents that achieved each score. The report lists each test score, how many respondents achieved that score (frequency), the local percentile for each score, and a graph showing a set of asterisks each representing one respondent.
  6. Test Score Distribution Report – provides a comparison of raw scores and percentages against standard Z-Scores, T-Scores, and stanines. We will convert this to an excel file that is sorted by name or student ID. This excel report will contain the students name if the large form is used, the student ID, the raw score, number correct and the individual responses from students.
