Test/Survey Scanning

NOTE:  The OpScan Insight 4 Scanner Machine will be moved to Swem Library (behind the IT Help Desk at Swem) on February 12, 2020.  It will be accessible during the hours that Swem Library is open. Support is available when IT staff is present.

Test Scoring

We offer a self-service scanning option for test scoring. This self-service option is for scoring tests using NCS Pearson forms that you may purchase from Information Technology. Since the self-service scanner is attached to a PC, you will save scanning results to your departmental G: drive or your H: drive.

Surveys

We are unable to support scanning required for surveys (i.e., the creation of bubble forms, and the scanning of surveys and other non-test instruments).

If you have questions, please contact the Technology Support Center at 757-221-HELP or [[support]].
