GradeHub for Blackboard - Test day tips

Instructions on test day

  1. Remind student to read the instructions printed on their answer sheet on how to complete it properly
    1. Mark an X for correct answers (e.g., questions 1, 4, and 5)
      1. If a student changes their mind on an answer, have them mark a big X over the intended response (e.g., question 2)
      2. Blanks are scored as no response (e.g., question 3)

    2. Darken box thoroughly (i.e., 100%) for corrections
    3. Have students use a black or blue pen or thin felt tip.
  2. IMPORTANT: Ask students if their answer sheets have brackets in each corner, is for the correct test, and has been printed with sufficient ink levels.
    1. If a student’s answer sheet is misprinted (e.g., without brackets), have them get a new answer sheet from you and discard the test answer sheet they misprinted.
    2. Students using extra answer sheets must also fill out their name and student ID
    3. You can print extra answer sheets for students from your Canvas account by selecting the PDF icon for the associated "assignment" in Canvas.


Handout test and collect answer sheets

  1. Provide students test and have them mark responses to questions on the answer sheets similar to the way testing is done with scantrons.
    1. Unlike scantrons, an X represents the correct answers and darkened boxes are for corrections.
    2. Although GradeHub has algorithms to handle a variety of circumstances, the GradeHub reader works best when corrections are completely filled in (i.e., 100%).
    3. Occasionally, students write very lightly. Again, GradeHub can read light marks but works best with darker ink marks.
  2. Collect answer sheets for scanning.
