How can you associate question element from scanned answer form and spreadsheet.

Added by Pieter Van den Hombergh about 8 years ago

My first run of and a exam had two miss scans.
In the spreadsheet I find pink boxes and no mark inside.
How can associate the questions back to the question number on a paticular sheet.

Example:
AMC says it cannot reliably read the choices of copie-0003.
In the spreadsheet it show a pink box for question chap1q3 (example, my question names), but I cannot recognize which mark on the answer form belongs to this question.

How can associate the questions back to the question number on a paticular sheet.?

by the question name like {03} or {alpha}.

\begin{question}{03}
\begin{choicescustom}
\wrongchoice[أ]{}%
\wrongchoice[ب]{}%
\wrongchoice[ج]{}%
\wrongchoice[د]{}%
\end{choicescustom}
\end{question}

\begin{question}{alpha}
\begin{choicescustom}
\wrongchoice[أ]{}%
\wrongchoice[ب]{}%
\wrongchoice[ج]{}%
\wrongchoice[د]{}%
\end{choicescustom}
\end{question}

My first run of and a exam had two miss scans.

What kind of miss scans?

In the spreadsheet I find pink boxes and no mark inside.

Are there pink boxes for all questions from the same student, or only one or two questions? Can you look in the "legend" tab in the exported spreadsheet and tell what is the legend corresponding to the color?

AMC says it cannot reliably read the choices of copie-0003.

In fact I'm not sure to understand what is the AMC message you had for this.

Used ubuntu 10.04 and the amc version that goes with it for that production.

There appears to be no legend tab in the exported spreadsheet.

  • I did not have a message, other then that the spreadsheet showed three pink cells, one for one candidate and another for a second candidate.

The colour of the cells that are not properly interpreted (or not readable by AMC) are in pink.
Looking at the legend in the new spreadsheet format suggests it is invalid answer.

I let the candidates us a black felt tip, which is not a good idea. Athough the black is impressive, it is messy and leaks through to the backside.
Next time I try with pencil.

Invalid answers corresponds to one of the following cases:
  • The question is a simple question, but the student ticked two or more boxes,
  • The question is a multiple question, and the student ticked "none of the above" and another box

In these cases, the score is given by the e= scoring parameter (0 by default).
