Scanning Services

What is the process an instructor follows when submitting a classroom examination for scanning?

After the test has been administered, instructors can deliver the answer sheets and an answer key to Wilson Hall 225 in a test scanning envelope. If after office hours, you may slide the exam under our door for next-day processing. Envelopes can be picked up in Wilson Hall 225 and should be saved and used each time a test is delivered. You can also attach a Test Scanning Form to your own envelope. 

Where do I obtain answer sheets and is there a charge?

You may pick up blank answer sheets in Wilson Hall 225, free of charge. Since we fund this service at no cost to faculty, we ask that you take only as many blank forms as you will need for a semester.

Can I use these forms for other in-class needs?

No, these forms are to be used solely for classroom examinations that you need scanned.

How long does it take to receive my test results?

We guarantee a turn-around time of 48 hours.

How will I know when my test results are ready?

We provide all test results via e-mail to your UAH e-mail address. Once you receive the e-mail, you can stop by at your convenience to retrieve the answer sheets.

Why do I need to pick up my answer sheets if I already received the test results?

Testing Services will not destroy or throw out examinations and we do not have the storage space to keep examinations for faculty campus-wide.

Answer sheets not retrieved from Testing Services within two weeks of the scan date will be returned to the Instructor via campus mail. To maintain security and preserve the integrity of your exam, the answer key will not be including in the mailing.

What reports are included in the test results?

On your test scanning envelope, check off the items you wish to receive.
