Testing and Evaluation 5-Step Process

Standard, two-sided answer sheets are available for free in Emory's Registrar Office and may be picked up by appointment only. They can handle most tests and surveys. No exam or quiz is too small for their use. However, they only have space for a maximum of 200 items (questions), with five possible response choices for each.

  • When you need your results within 24 business hours or less, please request an appointment at least one business day in advance through the online scheduling portal, via email at testingandevaluation@registrar.emory.edu, or by calling 404-727-7780.
  • Please note that however you schedule your appointment, it will be confirmed using our Calendly online scheduling system.
  • When 48 business hours or less is an acceptable turnaround time, please feel welcome to walk in anytime during normal business hours (M-F 8:30-4:00)!

  • Complete a cover sheet for each class’s exam and/or survey (blank hardcopies are available in our lobby and individuals with appointments are welcome to print their Calendly confirmation emails to use as a cover sheet instead)
  • Create an answer key for each version of the exam (if applicable)
    • If you have any special requests (multiple point values, bonus questions, etc), please write them at the top of the answer key. View Exam Reports for details on advanced grading options.
  • Whether you have an appointment or are just dropping off, please place the cover sheet, answer key (s), and student answer sheets into an interoffice envelope and submit it into the grey drop box in our lobby. A video walk through of this process can be viewed here.

Receive your results in PDF and MS Excel via email from testingandevaluation@registrar.emory.edu

Unless you requested specific reports on your cover sheet or Calendly appointment information, we will include the following three default reports: Condensed Test Report, Student Response Report, and Class Frequency Distribution Report.

  • If you select “no” to confidential recycling, then Scantrons will be held for pick up filed by instructor last name for four weeks. They can be picked up by instructors or department administrators with an appointment.
  •  Instructors can “opt in” to confidential recycling by initialing “yes” in the appropriate place on the cover sheet. The answer sheets will then be confidentially recycled at COB the Monday following scanning
  • Please note that during processing, back up images of each and every Scantron answer sheet are saved. This way, if a student ever feels their exam grade misrepresents their actual answers, the original Scantron image is available for the instructor to view. They are kept through the following semester and individual sheets can be shared with instructors upon request, either via Emory One Drive or via email. Even better, ALL the e-copies can be uploaded to Emory One Drive upon request on the cover sheet
