Hand Scoring/ Bubbling

Postby jrthor10 » Sun Dec 04, 2011 12:27 pm

So basically I indicated my answer choices and I usually go back at the end of each section and make sure each bubble is completely filled in (as opposed to just making a dark mark that doesn't fill it).

Two questions. One, does anyone know how much the scantron picks up--does it need to be completely filled in? Two, if I have it hand-graded will they grade it based only on those answers that are completely filled or will they take the answer if they can tell which one I am clearly indicating?

I realize these seem like trivial questions, but they could obviosuly have a serious impact on my score. Any insights would be appreciated.

Don't worry, you'll be fine. Scantron does an excellent job of picking up the correct answer. Most of my bubbles are about 75%, and I didn't have one misgrade. Also had a few stray marks on my sheet, and it ignores it.

You get a scanned copy of your Scantron, and the credited answers, as well as a copy of the 4 graded sections, so you can go over to make sure everything is hunky dory. If you see a mistake, that's when you ask for a hand grade.

You won't miss out on your points, no worries.
