Scanning and Scoring
OEA specializes in optical-mark data capture for exams, surveys and questionnaires. We scan a variety of standard and custom data collection forms in pencil-read, pen-read, and bar-code formats.
Standard forms provide the most cost- and time-effective (one-day turn-around for scanning) means to capture information. This is a good option if your test or questionnaire match the format of the forms available.
Custom forms can be developed to meet your specific data capture needs, and can range from one-page tests and questionnaires to multi-page booklets.
New!! We now provide two file formats so UW instructors can import ScorePak® score files into either UW Canvas or UW Catalyst Gradebooks.
Our proprietary test scoring system, ScorePak®, provides information suitable for analyzing and reporting administrations of any size and purpose. This service is used by UW instructors for classroom test scoring and grade computation, and by individual researchers for test development and validation. Specific features of our service include:
- Score rosters and individual score reports
- Score data files in CSV format (for UW Canvas Gradebook) or
Excel format (for Catalyst Gradebook)
- Item analysis for test improvement and validation
- Algebraic score manipulation
- Weighted scoring and correlations
