    • A test version must be bubbled in on ALL tests, including the key(s).
  • Test packets missing any required data on the 200 Answer Score Sheet will not be scanned. This will be noted on the scan request form when the tests are returned to the instructor.

Bubble in Test Form!

The Key and Student Tests must have the same Test Form letter bubbled in if more than one key is submitted. Failure to do so will result in tests not scanned and the instructor will be contacted to make correction(s).

Bubble Student IDs!

Students must bubble in their student ID numbers. Failure to do so will result in tests not scanned and the instructor will be contacted to make correction(s).

Student ID numbers must be correctly bubbled to be read by the scanning system.

  • The Student ID field is in the upper left-hand corner of the test sheet.
  • The Student ID is a 9 digit field, 9 digits are required!
  • Only the the first 9 positions (A-I) should be filled out.
  • The Student ID number must start in the 1st position (A) and end on the 9th position (I).
  • If a Student ID number is less than 9 digits long, add leading zeros to the blank spaces at the beginning of the Student ID.
  • Leave position J blank!
