Preparation for Scoring (Update Coming Soon)

Teacher Instruction Checklist

  • I have filled in a Class Information Sheet for every class period tested following the instructions provided.
  • I have double-checked each student answer sheet for the following:
    • first and last names are written and bubbled-in in the spaces provided
    • pencil used only and sheets are free of extraneous marks, bends or tears.
  • I packaged the items to be scored by having:
    • placed a Class Information Sheet on top of the corresponding class set of student answer sheets
    • avoided using paper clips or staples as these would jam the MDTP scanner
  • If there are more than one teacher in the package, I have:
    • placed each teachers scantrons in separate envelopes or folders.
    • made sure each teacher has completed a Class Information Sheet for each class tested

Returning Class Sets for Scoring

  • Review answer sheets and check that each student’s full name is printed and bubbled-in. Erase extraneous marks. Do NOT write any initials, numbers, or check marks in the corners or other unprinted areas of the forms. Stray marks or notes may make the entire form unreadable for the scanner.
  • Arrange the answer sheets so they are face up with the header at the top. Remove all scratch paper and unused
  • Place a completed class information sheet on the top of the answer sheets for each class. A separate class information sheet should be used for each class.  Do not group several classes with one class information sheet.
  • Forms that are bent, folded, or have tears might jam the scanner and delay processing. For this reason, we ask that you NOT use paperclips, rubber bands, or other means to separate class sets. The upper right corner of the Class Information Sheet is not notched to allow our offices to determine where each class set begins.
  • Place the stack of forms flatly in an envelope or a box and return to UCLA for scoring.
  • When possible please mail or deliver all class sets for your school at the same time.
  • Tests are scored in the order received. The test results are emailed to the teacher information provided on the Class Information Sheet.
  • Unless scoring volume is unusually heavy, tests will be scored and emailed within 24 hours of being received.  MDTP’s scanner machine is very precise. There should be no extraneous markings on the Class Information Sheets or Student Scantrons.
