Exam Processing Form

NO EXAM WILL BE ACCEPTED WITHOUT THIS COMPLETED FORM

Please fill out the following form for exam preparation and return this form with your exam to T.I.P.S. You can also download a PDF of this form.

Information on page or line conversion to Character Count is on the second page of the PDF. Character Count is what appears to the student as he/she types the exam in ExamSoft SofTest.

Students are given exam questions in envelopes labeled with the exam, professor and the student exam #.

All exams are stored in the Registrar’s Office prior to distribution.

Blue Books are placed in all exam rooms. The Registrar’s Office also has a supply.

 

Standard or Default Instructions for
Essay Questions & Printing

The following questions are the standard or default options for distribution and the ExamSoft SofTest template exam used by the students. Additional options are available at the bottom of the form.

In minutes
Choose one type
The registrar default is one "essay question window." This causes the exam to print out with no page breaks between questions. Students must identify the question they are answering as they type the exam. (See below for other options, including Multiple Choice.)
If you want your exam printed out and with the following defaults check Use Default. (See below for other options.) TIPS default = printed exam is single-sided, 1" margins, Times New Roman 12 pt, double-spaced, no page breaks between questions, with Cover Sheet showing Student ID#, Class/Professor, Total Character/Word Count for the exam.
Check the Use Default button if you want the following default (See below for other options): TIPS default = only student answers in hard copy delivered to the Registrar’s Office with no envelopes, exams, or materials returned to the professor.
Complete the following if you are NOT using the default question window or printing. If you have Multiple Choice or a combination of Essay and Multiple Choice questions, or if you want a page limit for the exam, or a page or line limit for any individual question or questions, answer the questions below.
If you do NOT want to use the default (one question window), state the number of questions, i.e. 2, 5, 10, etc. The exam template will have that many "question windows." This allows the exam to be printed showing a character count (page or line limit) for each question. (For page to character count conversion see information on the second page of the Exam Processing Form PDF.)

NOTE: T.I.P.S. needs at least two weeks lead time for this option.
