Test Scoring & Questionnaire Services (TSQS)

Test Scoring & Questionnaire Services are provided to support test scoring, survey data collection, and general data-entry activities. While we primarily use optical mark reader (OMR) technology, we are experiencing an increasing demand for online Web surveys. A major activity of this centre is the generation and processing of USRIs or the universal students' ratings of instruction questionnaires using the Instructor Designed Questionnaire (IDQ) system.
