The instructor must also fill out the JMU Testscoring form below. Click here to download this form.
JMU E-MAIL USERID- This is your EID used to log into email, ecampus, secureweb, etc
INSTRUCTOR NAME- The name that will appear on the test report
FILE NAME-(can be any combination of letters/numbers) It is suggested you use the semester code, dept & course, section and test number. (E.g. FA05HI3240501)
TEST NAME-This will appear at the top of the test report. Students may have multiple tests mailed to them, so
you may want to include the course name and test number here. (e.g. History 225 Test 1)
# OF QUESTIONS SCORED-number of questions to be graded
COPY FILES TO TESTSCORING SECURE WEB AREA: YES / NO This allows the Electronic ID listed at the top of the form to access and download test files. The instructor must first request access to JMU's secureweb. This is done by logging into https://secureweb.jmu.edu/computing/TestScoring/index.html
PRINT STATISTICS: YES / NO Test scoring will print the statistics to be picked up at Frye. A basic set of statistics can be printed from the internet using JMU's secureweb.
PRINT INDIVIDUAL STUDENT SHEETS: YES / NO Test scoring will print one sheet per student, however this can be a large amount of paper and will take longer for your test to be processed. Student scores can be emailed to each student by the professor if the professor has access to secureweb.
In the right columnQUESTION BLOCKS- allows you to score different sections or blocks of the test differently. One section can have questions worth 2 points each while another section can have questions worth 3, 4, 5 etc. points each.
The test will be brought to the lower level of the Frye building to
be scanned. For hours of operation call 568-7024. Once the test is
scanned, the instructor can pick up the student scansheets, individual
student sheet printouts, and instructor statistics from Frye. If the
instructor has access to secureweb and requested for the files to be
copied, then the instructor can view the test results on secureweb and
e-mail students their individual reports. Please try to pick up your
scansheets and results of the test within 2 weeks. Testscoring does NOT
keep scansheets and result on a long-term basis.
Please note, the statistics and student test results will now be available on the Internet through JMU's secureweb (if requested on the Testscoring Form), therefore an email will not be sent advising an instructor that their test has been graded. An instructor will know that their test has been graded by checking secureweb rather than by checking their email. Please refer below on how to use online testscoring application.
To log into secureweb, go to
To access instructions for using the secureweb, go to http://www.jmu.edu/computing/systems/testscoring.shtml
The Remark Software for scoring tests generates six (6) html formatted files for each test. The name for each of the
six files will begin with the test name designated on the JMU COMPUTER TESTSCORING FORM, for example, FA05Ps1600301
(Note: FA designates the Fall semester; 05 designates the year 2005; Ps designates
Psychology; 160 designates the course number; 03 designates the course section; and 01
designates test number one.
For each of the six files, the Remark Software will append the term, section, and a number to the faculty designated test name. As a result, the complete name for file number one for the above test will appear as follows: FA05Ps1600301--section1.html. File number six for the above test will appear as FA05Ps1600301--section6.html.
The six files provide comprehensive information for each test. Briefly, the content of each file is as follows:
Note: The Individual Report will include the correct response beside each incorrect response.
Note: Only section two [(Test file name).section2.html] and section six [(Test file name).section6.html] can be emailed to students.
Note: A CSV File that can be imported into Excel for uploading to Blackboard will be included. This file includes the student name, id number, student responses, raw and percent scores.
For documentation on the development and features of the online test scoring system, use the following URL: http://www.jmu.edu/computing/systems/testscoring.shtml
Faculty access the web-based test scoring system by entering their JMU "eID" and "password" at the following URL (See Option 4 below): https://secureweb.jmu.edu/computing/TestScoring/index.html
The online test scoring application has four options. The options are presented in the order of projected frequency of use.
Yes. The scansheets are the same. They have been used for the past several years at JMU. Each scansheet will have a form number printed on it (i.e. F-165). Scansheets are also known as scantrons, scanforms, bubble mark forms, optical mark forms, but we are calling them scansheets to differentiate them from other forms.
Testscoring is located in the lower level of Frye, room 102.
Our phone number is 568-7024.
When fall/spring classes are in session, the hours are Monday - Thursday 8am-8pm, Friday 8am-5pm. When summer classes are in session, the hours are Monday - Thursday 8am-6pm, Friday 8am-5pm.When classes are not in session, the hours are Monday - Friday 8am-5pm. We are closed Saturday and Sunday.
Faculty obtain scansheets from their own departments (usually the departmental secretary). Testscoring does NOT give scansheets directly to faculty. Departments obtain scansheets by filling out an Agency Transaction Voucher, bring the ATV to testscoring in the Frye building, and the scansheets are then exchanged for the ATV.Back to Top
