Exam and Survey Reports

For surveys and evaluations, we can provide you with the electronic datafile of the scanned data. This datafile is easily imported into the software of your choice, or that of your statistician. If you use our standard answer sheets for your survey, we are also able to provide you with three reports, providing analysis of your results. For all other answer sheets, we do not currently provide interpretation of surveys and evaluations beyond simple averages and/or response counts.

For exams, instructors are welcome to request specific reports from our suite of over 20 options. For most exams, reports are available in PDF, html, TIF, txt, RTF, and MS Excel.

If a preference is not stated, we generate three reports and send them directly to the instructor’s email in both MS Excel and PDF form:

  • The Condensed Test Report features analysis of each exam question, including but not limited to the following:  
    • The total percent of students who answered correctly (also known as Difficulty Factor) and Point Biserial
    • The number of students in the top and bottom quartiles of the test population
    • Response frequencies of students who chose each alternative answer
    • Overall Statistics including Standard Deviation, Median and Mean, Reliability Coefficient (KR20), and Max and Min scores
  • The Student Response Report features each student’s responses, total score, percent score, and grade. This report also includes conditional formatting to show which questions each student got wrong and a mean score for each question.
  • The Class Frequency Distribution Report provides both the frequency and percent of students who received each grade, along with the mean score and benchmark.
    • Upon request, we are happy to tailor the grading scale to fit the needs of specific classes

For most exams, we can process the following advanced grading features when the instructor details their request at the top of the exam answer key (please see example below each item).

  • Alternate correct answers
    • Example request: “For #13, please accept both A and C”
  • Partial credit when questions are worth at least two point each
    • Example request: “For #13, please give full credit (2 points) for answer A, but answer C should receive 1 point”
  • “All or nothing” when two options must be selected for credit
    • Example request: “For #13, please accept both A and C but do not give any credit for individual responses of A or C”
  • Multiple point values
    • Example request: “Questions 1-10 are worth 2 points each, with Questions 11-15 worth 4 points each”
  • Bonus questions where correct answers receive credit but incorrect responses do not take away from a student’s overall test score
    • Example request: “Please give 1 point each to questions 1-100, but make Question 101 a bonus.”
  • All versions in one stack
    • Please note: For this feature, grades are available in multiple formats, but our standard reports (showing student responses and featuring Item Analysis of exam questions ) will only be available in PDF

These reports are not available when:

  • The exam answer sheet is custom designed (not our standard form) and there are more than 200 questions and/or more than 5 possible responses for each item.
  • The scanned response sheets are from a survey or evaluation, that is, not an exam.
