Scoring

ScorePak® was created to meet complex scoring requirements (including multiple versions of the same test, multiple correct answers with a weighted point scale, and multi-step score calculations), and archive test data in a format that can be conveniently analyzed and easily exported to secondary analysis programs such as SPSS, MSAccess, MSExcel, and other programs.

Special Features

Following are some of the features that make ScorePak® especially easy and convenient to use.

Fast Turn-around

ScorePak® offers 24-hour turn-around for standard scoring jobs, with special rates for 3-hour Express Service.

Score Manipulations

ScorePak® supports a wide range of algebraic score transformations and optional weighting to assist instructors in computing course grades.

Bookkeeping Accounts

A bookkeeping account allows the maintenance and manipulation of exam scores throughout the academic quarter. Clients may use this file to store exams, quizzes, homework, and extra credit scores to be used in determining a final score for each student.

Bookkeeping services can save valuable time for those classes which have multiple test versions, weighted test answers, or a large number of exams and quizzes throughout the quarter. Likewise, bookkeeping may not be as valuable if you have a small class with few tests.

Score Exports

ScorePak® score files are available in two formats for direct import into UW Canvas Gradebook (as a csv file) or Catalyst GradeBook (as an MS Excel file). Additionally, ScorePak® item and score file exports allow users to combine test score information with data from other sources for further analyses.
