2. Find “UT Opscan Upload” in the list of tools on the Tool Availability page – check its box, and click Submit.
Loading Remark/Scantron RESULTS into your Blackboard Grade Center
Before you begin --
1. Have you received you test results from scan-services? It will arrive as an email containing a detailed set of reports (.PDF file), and a Microsoft Excel data file (*_gradedata.CSV). You will need to have the .CSV file saved on your computer (e.g. Desktop) before you proceed.
2. Do you have column in your course’s Grade Center for the results to be loaded into? If no, you will first want to create this. For Grade Center assistance, please visit our website at http://www.utsc.utoronto.ca/technology/grade-center or contact us directly:

STEP 2/3 – Using the Opscan Upload Tool
Step 2A: Locate the “ID” column containing student numbers, as shown above. Use the dropdown above this column to select Student.
Step 2B: Scroll in the web browser to the far right, and locate the “Total Score” column. Use the dropdown above this column to select Grade
Once you had indicated both columns, click the Submit button.
Step 3/3 – Review Results
Step 3B: If you see numbers in Column B, this means that there are grades that have not been imported! This will occur when a student has not correctly indicated their student number on their Scantron answer sheet. In this case, you will likely want to review the physical answer sheets from your students to cross-reference these results. A record of these import results can be saved to your computer using the “Download These Results to a .csv File”.
Step 3C: If you see students listed in this column, it means that they missed the test and were not included in the imported grade data!
OPTIONAL CHECK AND BALANCE
Upon completion of Step 3, the grade data will be automatically updated in your course shell Grade Center. As a check and balance, you may want to load up the grade center to confirm that the results look proper. For instance, when you load grade data into a column *it is crucial that the Points Possible for the column exactly equals the number of questions on the Remark/Scantron forms.
