Understanding Score Rosters

Score rosters list the names, student numbers, section and exam scores for all students in the bookkeeping files, or, if bookkeeping is not used, all students whose answer sheets were scored on the current scoring run. Several score names may be requested, and you may specify that the rosters be ordered alphabetically, numerically, or by student score. A separate roster will be provided for each order.

Score Roster Types

Score Roster Ordered by Student Name. A score roster ordered by student name is shown below. Answer sheets without last names or with a blank in the first position of the name field will appear at the top of the roster. Students who did not submit an answer sheet in the current scoring run will not have a sheet and version number or a score for the test. Students who enter their ID differently on two or more answer sheets will appear more than once on the roster if it is for a bookkeeping account.

Score Roster Ordered by Last 4 Digits of the Student Number. The sample report below shows a score roster suitable for posting, which is ordered by the last 4 digits of the student number. Answer sheets in the current scoring run which do not have ID numbers, or with a blank in the first position of the student number field, will appear at the top of the roster.

Score Roster High Score to Low. The sample report below shows a score roster in which the order is based on the highest to lowest scores. In the sample shown, there are multiple scores for each student (midterm tests and an exam). The sorting is based on the total of all tests and exams. If the roster were for a single test or exam, of course, the order would be based on those scores.
