Scanning and Scoring

***Upcoming Change to Scantron Ordering Process***

Starting in the Spring 2020 semester, the order process for Scantrons (bubble sheets) will move from the AT online billing system to a one page Scanning and Scoring request form in MyIT.  Once you’ve submitted your request, the UFIT Assessment Technology team will contact you directly about when you can pick up the Scantron packs.

Billing for Scantrons will be handled via the centralized UFIT Services Online portal, similarly to how telephone services, infrastructure services (file storage, servers, databases, etc.), building networks, AV installations and research computing storage are already processed. More information about using the UFIT Services Online portal is available at , with the Portal itself available at: For questions regarding billing, please contact  or call (352) 392-7449.

The UFIT Assessment Technology team provides scanning and processing services for optical mark Scantron (bubble sheet) exams and surveys. Cost for analyzing exams and/or collecting survey data is included in the price of the answer sheets purchase through our department. Services also include but are not limited to, text files, item analysis, arrange analysis, and a data file that is compatible to the university’s e-learning system, Canvas.

Customized scan documents printed by Scantron Corporation can be used for special projects for an additional one-time programming fee. These forms can be purchased through our online billing system and picked up in Hub Room 224C. The cost of processing is included in the purchase price of the forms. Departments will receive a raw data output file that can be used in their spreadsheet or analysis program.
