What will the Test Score Office's new scanner and software packages mean for you as an instructor or departmental admin? Read on to find out:
Is the Test Score Office closing?
No. We are implementing new software and a new scanner.
For the past several weeks, we have been running the old and new systems in parallel and collecting feedback from faculty about the new reports, making adjustments as necessary.
Are Scantron sheets being eliminated for exams? Will faculty be required to put their exams online once OHIO switches to semesters?
No. The Test Score Office will continue to process standard, blue Scantron answer sheets (form 4521) and provide all of the reports that the old system used to. The only changes are:
Will departments be required to use online course evaluations?
No. The university’s new course evaluation software, Class Climate offers multiple ways to administer evaluations and surveys:
How much training is required to use Class Climate?
That depends on your role. An instructor who only needs to access his or her own evaluation and survey reports can learn the basics in a few minutes. Individuals with admin rights will require more in depth training.
Recently, OIT brought Scantron staff on campus to offer a two day “train the trainer” seminar for college representatives. This 14 hour seminar was designed to give two individuals from each college enough knowledge to be able to administer their college’s Class Climate service, if need be, and to be able to help individual instructors learn how to navigate the system. OIT does not anticipate needing to offer such a seminar again.
