Examination Scoring, Placement Exams, and Surveys
The Office of the Registrar provides scantron scoring services for departments across campus using University of Michigan Scantron Forms. Our office supplies the blank forms, as well as quick processing for scoring and analysis services.
The following reports are provided electronically for each exam. Examination reports can be requested to be sent to individuals other than the instructor using the Exam Scoring Request Form (PDF).
- Student Scores and Responses (Excel)
- Item Analysis (PDF) provides detailed distractor analysis based on raw scores
- Score Distribution (PDF) provides analysis of student score distribution
By default each question on an exam is worth one point with no deductions. Additional scoring options available include:
- Penalties for incorrect answers
- Scoring by Subtest
- Varying point values for exam questions
- Rescoring of test after elimination or adjustment for poor test items
If non-standard scoring is requested, these additional reports may be provided.
- Subtest Criteria Report (PDF) shows subtest definition detail

The Office of the Registrar works with departments across campus to proctor and process placement tests and surveys. Our office ensures that the placement and survey results are processed and loaded in the M-Pathways student system. Our office also assists departments and ITS as they transition from using paper placement exams to using electronic exams.
Currently, our office works with the following departments on campus to administer and process their placement exams and surveys:
- Sweetland Center for Writing
The Office of the Registrar is no longer providing survey work for new customers based on a decision by the Provost’s Office. New customers are encouraged to use Qualtrics, provided by the University of Michigan free of charge for creating and administering online surveys. If new paper surveys are required, we suggest finding a contractor outside of the University. Scantron Corporation provides these services for larger jobs. The Office of the Registrar does maintain survey services for existing customers who are making only minor modifications to existing surveys.
