Policies and procedures

Instructors who wish to administer OMR (Optical Mark Recognition – i.e., ‘bubble sheet’) exams are asked to familiarize themselves with the following policies and procedures:

  • Instructors may obtain answer sheets, instructions for completing answer sheets and exam scanning forms from TLT in Belk Library 115 during our operating hours.
  • Answer sheets are provided in class sets of 25 each. If a department wishes to procure a bulk number of answer sheets, please call x5006 to determine availability.
  • Completed exams to be scored should be brought to TLT in Belk Library 115 during our operating hours.
    • Due to confidentiality, we do not allow students to drop off or pick up exams.
  • When bringing in an exam to be scored, faculty should:
    • Fill out an exam scanning form for each test.
    • Tell the TLT student worker if you plan to pick-up your tests or if you would like us to archive them (tests not picked up are shredded at the end of each semester).
  • We aim for a 24 hour turn-around.
  • You will receive an email with the test results. The scored answer sheets may be picked up after receiving the email notification.
