What’s New/Reminders
•
Graph Paper in mathematics
–
–
–
•
System Readiness Tools (for online testing)
–
•
For all mathematics EOCTs, it is recommended that graph paper be provided to students, and it may be
printed from the GaDOE website at: http://www.gadoe.org/Curriculum-Instruction-andAssessment/Assessment/Pages/EOCT-Resources.aspx.
If graph paper is used, students should put their names on each sheet of paper and it must be collected at
the end of the testing session. Used graph paper should be destroyed per the instructions provided in the
Test Coordinator’s Manual.
Only quarter-inch (1/4) graph paper may be used.
With our recent TestNav update, these tools are important for you to
use to test your system.
Neither “Test-Outs” or Retests may be conducted
during Main Administrations
What’s New/Reminders
• Mathematics I and GPS Algebra EOCTs were
discontinued in 2012-2013.
• Mathematics II and GPS Geometry are being
discontinued at the end of Summer 2014 (7/18/14).
– The Mathematics II and GPS Geometry EOCTs will not be
available for the mid-month or main administrations during
the 2014-2015 school year.
– Schools should plan to create their own final exams for these
courses.
– Schools should follow the local grading practices and policies
in place for courses without an associated EOCT.
What’s New/Reminders
• Large Print size has increased to 18 point font (paper and online).
• Students who are still productively working in a section at 60
minutes may be provided an additional 15 minutes for that section.
Systems/Schools should plan accordingly when scheduling.
• All Georgia Pearson Access users should have completed the
transition from TestNav 6.9.004 to TestNav 6.9.008 in October 2013.
TestNav 6.9.004 no longer functions for Georgia EOCTs.
• Ensure that online testing virus scans will not interrupt testing
sessions
• After summer, scoring anomalies resulting from school/system
errors may be irreparable.
What’s New/Reminders
• When creating a session for students with Large
Print or Read Aloud accommodations, do not
place them in "main" sessions and then move
them at a later date. These students should be
placed in Large Print or Read Aloud sessions
initially so the proper form can be assigned.
What’s New/Reminders
• The EOCT Examiner’s Manual communicates the
minimum expectation that students should be given
scratch paper for the Physical Science, Economics,
and mathematics EOCTs.
– This should not necessarily be interpreted as a prohibition
of scratch paper in the other content areas.
– Be consistent within your district and develop the
appropriate security procedures.
• Student’s must put their names on the paper.
• All scratch paper must be treated as secure test material and collected at
the end of the testing session.
PearsonAccess – Student Upload
When entering student data into PearsonAccess
(either manually or via SDU Upload) . . .
• It is critical that BOTH the FTE Number and
GTID fields are completed.
• Not doing so could complicate Assessment
Processing functions that are required for
accountability (CCRPI) purposes.
Electronic ISRs
• Electronic ISRs will be posted on
PearsonAccess, regardless of whether or not
districts request paper copies
• Please note that districts who have not previously
requested electronic copies will not have access to files
prior to the Spring 2014 administration
– Districts may download these files for their
records

EOCT Overview
Purpose
• The purpose of the EOCT is to assess student
achievement of the state adopted
curriculum in core courses and to provide
diagnostic data in support of improved
student achievement.
• The EOCT serves as a student’s final exam as
a portion of the final course grade.
• The EOCT serves as a component in
Georgia’s College & Career Ready
Performance Index (CCRPI).
EOCT Assessments
•

EOCT Assessments
• Each test booklet is divided into two sections.
• Students may complete Sections I and II in day one or
Section I in day one and Section II in day two.
• Students may not complete a portion of a section and then
complete the remainder of the section later in the day or
the next day.
• This will result in an invalidation of the test.
– For example, if a student becomes ill during Section I and does not
complete that section, the student may not complete the
remainder of the Section I upon return to school.

Administration Windows
• Main Administrations:
• Spring 2014
• Summer 2014
• Mid-Months:
• Spring 2014 - January, February and March
• Retest Administrations:
• Spring Retest Administration will coincide with the
Summer Main administration (June 16 - July18).
– There will be a Main form and a Retest form. If administering
the Main online, make sure the correct form is selected for
students.
Testing Modes
• End-of-Course Tests may be administered via
paper and pencil or online.
– Paper/pencil assessments will be available during
spring and summer main administrations.
– Online assessments are available for all
administrations (required for mid-month and
retest administrations).
Use of Calculators
• Calculators are allowable on the following EOCTs:
–
–
–
–
–
–
Analytic Geometry
Coordinate Algebra
GPS Geometry
Mathematics II
Physical Science
Economics
• Calculators that store text or graphing calculators cannot
be used. Use of such a device will result in invalidation.
– Examiners should verify appropriate calculator use prior to the beginning of
testing.
– Refer to detailed calculator restrictions in the Student Assessment Handbook.
• A 4-function calculator is available in TestNav as part of
online testing.
– Students are allowed to use their own calculators (that meet guidelines) when
testing online.
Scheduling Considerations
• Diligent attention must be given to the development of a schedule
that protects the security and integrity of the test administration.
• EOCT may be scheduled at any time during the state testing window.
– Systems may elect a one-day or a two-day administration; however, all
schools in the system must follow the same schedule as closely as
possible.
– Individual subject areas must be administered on the same or
consecutive days within the system.
– At no time should some students complete a test one week and
another group of students complete the same test the following week.
– For scheduling examples, please refer to the EOCT section of the
Student Assessment Handbook.
*Allowing flexibility in the scheduling of the EOCT, to meet the variety of school schedules that
exist, is dependent upon everyone involved in the administration protecting the integrity of the
program.
Scheduling Considerations
• Schools must adhere to the testing times prescribed in the Examiner’s
Manuals.
NEW
– Total administration time for the tests is 90-120 minutes.
– Any students who are productively working after 60 minutes have passed for
that section may be provided an additional 15 minutes for that section.
– Additional time is required for disseminating materials, completing forms, and
other test protocols.
– Allowing too much or too little time may result in an invalidation.
• When scheduling tests, consider the optimum time to administer the
tests.
– Consider logistics, including time and staffing.
– During one-day test administrations, lunch should not serve as the break
between sections I and II. To do so, would allow for potential breaches of
test security.
Scheduling Considerations –
Test Make-ups
• The purpose of the make-up days is to administer the tests to
students who were unexpectedly absent during the regularly
scheduled administration.
– Includes sick days, verified court dates, etc.
– Does not include personal vacations, school field trips.
– When in doubt, contact GaDOE.
• Make-ups must only be administered during the district’s
window
– Permission to test outside district window will only be considered in
rare, case-by-case circumstances and must be pre-approved by
GaDOE.
Students To Be Tested
• Any student, regardless of grade-level,
enrolled in an EOCT course must take the
appropriate EOCT.
– For example, if a student is taking a course to complete
the state requirement for Biology, that student must take
the Biology EOCT regardless of the course title assigned
by the local system.
Students To Be Tested
• Students who are:
– taking a block-scheduled course who complete the full
year course in one semester will be tested at the end of
that semester.
– following a traditionally scheduled (36-week) course will
be tested at the end of the second semester of the
course.
– completing a course at the end of one semester
(typically Economics) will be tested at the completion of
the course.
Students To Be Tested
• Students who are:
– Middle-school students enrolled in an EOCT course will be
tested – regardless of whether not they are awarded high
school credit for the course. These students will also be
required to take the appropriate grade level (based upon
their FTE grade) CRCT.
– enrolled in credit recovery or “make-up” courses that will
award credit for an EOCT course that the student previously
failed.
Students To Be Tested
• Students who are:
– enrolled in Advanced Placement (AP) and/or International Baccalaureate
(IB) courses that have a corresponding EOCT must be administered the
EOCT if credit is being awarded as a “core” (required) course. If the
student is completing an AP or IB course as an “elective,” the student
should not be required to take the EOCT. This assumes that the student
will fulfill their EOCT requirement when they take the course for “core”
(required) credit.
– enrolled in alternative schools and GNETS locations.
– participating in “dual enrollment” for an EOCT course.
– enrolled in a Georgia public school while also enrolled in a private school,
home study program, or non-traditional educational center for which they
receive graduation credit for one of the required EOCT courses. These
students must take the EOCT regardless of the private school, home study,
or non-traditional educational center’s accreditation status.
Students To Be Tested
• Students with disabilities and English Learners (EL) who
are enrolled in EOCT courses for credit.
– Students who receive accommodations for instructional and
classroom assessment purposes may also be eligible for
accommodations during the administration of End-of-Course Tests.
– Accommodations provided for statewide assessment must be
listed on IEP, IAP, or EL TPC and should be consistent with the
student’s instructional program.
Students To Be Tested
• Students enrolled in your system who are also enrolled
in EOCT courses via Georgia Virtual School (GAVS)
– Must be administered the appropriate EOCT at their home
school.
– It is the school test coordinator’s responsibility to ensure that
these students’ answer documents are coded accurately
(“30” under SDU A).
– Documents not coded to reflect students enrollment with
GAVS could delay or interfere with student grade reports.
Students To Be Tested
• Students enrolling from non-accredited
programs, non-accredited schools, or nontraditional educational entities must take
and pass the EOCT with a minimum of 70
grade conversion score to receive credit for
the course.
• It is the responsibility of the local school system to
determine whether criteria are met for awarding
credit.
Students NOT To Be Tested
• Students who wish to earn credit through the testing
out option (Main Administrations are not to be
utilized for “test-out” administrations.)
• Transfer students who have earned credit at an
accredited school for an EOCT associated course.
Students NOT To Be Tested
• Students who have: (1) previously taken an EOCT
course, (2) took the accompanying EOCT, and (3)
earned core credit for the course are not required
to take the EOCT.
– For example, if a student is completing an EOCT course as an “elective”,
the student would not be required to take the EOCT. The student is
required to take the EOCT when they take and complete the course for
“core” credit.
– If you have questions in such circumstances, please contact GaDOE
Assessment.
Accommodations
• Students who receive accommodations for
instructional and classroom assessment purposes
may also be eligible for accommodations during
testing.
– Accommodations provided for statewide assessment
must be listed on IEP, IAP, or EL TPC and should be
consistent with the student’s instructional program.
• To avoid an irregularity, please ensure that students
who should receive accommodations are properly
identified prior to testing.
Accommodations
• Only approved accommodations may be used.
– Please refer to the Accommodations Manual and the
Student Assessment Handbook.
• Use of accommodations not on the list must be
approved in advance by Melissa Fincher, Associate
Superintendent for Assessment and Accountability.
– Six weeks should be allowed for these requests to be
reviewed.
– See page 144 of the Students Assessment Handbook for
details.
What percentage of a student’s course
grade does an EOCT comprise?
Cohort 1
Cohort 2
Students who enter grade 9 for the
first time in SY2011 -2012 or after
Students who entered grade 9 for
the first time between July 2008
and June 2011
• EOCT counts as 20% of
course grade
• EOCT counts as 15% of
course grade
The percentages for these two cohorts are defined by
State Board of Education rule 160-4-2-.13
(STATEWIDE PASSING SCORE)
Grading
• Students must earn a 70 or higher final course grade
to pass the course and earn credit for graduation.
• If your school awards 1.0 credit upon completion of a
year long course, the EOCT should count as either
15% or 20% that final grade.
• If your school awards 0.5 credit at the end of the first
semester, and 0.5 credit at the end of the second
semester, the EOCT should count as either 15% or
20% of the final second semester course grade.
Grading
• If a student is not present for an EOCT administration (main or midmonth), the system may issue an Incomplete and allow the student to test
during a future testing window (main or mid-month).
– This Incomplete may remain as the student’s course grade until their
testing requirement is fulfilled.
• If, after attempts have been made to have the student test in a future
window, the student does not take the EOCT, the course grade shall reflect
that the student did not participate in the test.
– The system may issue a zero as 15% or 20% (dependent upon date first
enrolled in grade nine) of the final course grade.
– There should be sufficient documentation to indicate the student was
notified of testing opportunities and did not participate.
• The EOCT is Georgia's assessment utilized for federal high school
accountability. As a result, systems must provide for the participation of
all students in completion of an EOCT course.
Security
• Maintaining test security and test integrity is critical.
• All EOCT must be administered and supervised by a Georgia-certified
educator.
• Everyone involved in the testing process must be properly trained and
informed of their roles and responsibilities for test security.
– Attendance at training must be mandatory and well-documented.
– Untrained examiners must not be allowed to test.
• Students and teachers need to understand test protocols and the
ramifications of not following testing procedures.
• The school principal must be made aware of any issues involving
testing or test security.
• Violations may result in invalidation of students’ tests and/or referral
to the Professional Standards Commission for disciplinary action.
Security
• Student Test Booklets must be kept stored in a secure place accessible
only by the principal and the test coordinator at all times.
• Test materials must not be removed from their secure storage location
for reasons other than the preparation of materials for testing, actual
test administration, and the completion of tasks as prescribed by test
manuals.
• Shrink-wrapped packages must remain sealed until Test Coordinators
are ready to prepare test materials for administration.
• Distribute testing materials as close to the actual testing time as
possible.
• Testing materials should only be issued to persons who have been
carefully advised of their responsibilities for test security.
– Only staff members who have been trained on the proper
management of secure test materials should handle such materials.
Security
• All persons receiving testing materials must sign a checkout sheet
when they receive the materials. This sheet should show date and
time.
• All testing materials issued to persons administering tests must be
counted carefully when given out and when returned.
– If a problem occurs, School Test Coordinator should be notified
immediately.
• Test Coordinators and/or Examiners should keep a record of all
students tested for each EOCT administration.
• In addition to student’s name and EOCT administered, please
remember to include form numbers for each student in your
documentation. Please be sure to keep copies of these records.
• Students must write their names on the cover of their test
booklet and any scratch paper.
Security
• Please follow all instructions in the test manuals exactly.
– Do not add anything to, or delete anything from, the directions in the test
manual. This violates standardized test conditions and may invalidate scores.
• All testing materials must be collected and returned immediately
after the testing session.
– Please be reminded that Student Authorization Tickets and used scratch
paper are considered secured materials and must be handled as such.
– Examiners are responsible for turning them in and coordinators are
responsible for verifying that they do.
• For example, if a teacher is administering the EOCT three times (a morning session, a
mid-day session, and an afternoon session) the collections/checking-in of secure
materials, should occur a minimum of three times. In other words and by way of
this example, examiners should not be in possession of their morning session
materials until the end of the school day.
• Please see Pages 26-38 of the Student Assessment Handbook for
additional information.
Security - Examiner Training
• Documentation of attendance at the district and
building level (include agenda and materials used).
• Ensure examiners have an opportunity to review
examiner manual prior to testing date (in a secure
environment).
– Updated manuals have also been posted on the GaDOE
(EOCT) website.
• Examiners should be clear on logistical procedures in
place for security of materials.
Testing Irregularities
• All personnel in the local system must follow protocol as they become
aware of testing irregularities.
• Signs of any testing irregularity must be dealt with immediately.
– Test Examiner > School Test Coordinator > System Test Coordinator >
Mary Nesbit-McBride
• The school principal must also be made aware of any instances of a testing
irregularity.
• Reports of testing irregularities from persons other than the STC (or their
designee), will be referred to the STC to ensure proper reporting protocols
are followed.
• Please do not include identifiable student information such as, social
security numbers, GTID, or FTE numbers in emails sent to GaDOE.
Testing Irregularities
• All irregularities must be coded, documentation
completed and submitted on the Testing Irregularity
Form in the MyGaDOE Portal.
• When entering the documentation into the portal,
please:
– Select the appropriate “Administration Cycle” - Spring 2014.
– Select the appropriate “Administration” - EOCT Main.
– Include the form number of the test that needs to be coded as an
Irregularity or Invalidation.
• Failure to include the form number when completing the Testing
Irregularity Form will result in delayed and/or inaccurate
reporting of scores.
Testing Irregularities
• When entering the documentation into the portal,
please:
– Clearly indicate if a score should be invalidated, or
counted as an irregularity.
• If tests needs to be invalidated, please select from drop
down menu the reason for invalidation.
– Described in detail the circumstances surrounding the
reason for invalidating the test.
Cell Phones & Electronic Devices
• Students are not permitted to use, or bring into the testing
environment, any electronic device that could allow them to
access, retain, or transmit information (e.g., cell phone,
smartphone, PDA, electronic recording, camera, or playback
device, etc.). Announcements must be made prior to testing
that such devices are not allowed in the testing environment
and that possession or improper use of such devices during
testing may result in disciplinary action in accordance with
the system's student code of conduct and/or test
invalidation.
• Script has been added to the Examiner’s Manual regarding
this topic. This script, as with all script, MUST be read to
students.

– Students testing under wrong GTID
• Contact GaDOE as soon as possible
– Much easier to fix during the administration or within
the first 48 hours after the close of the administration
Tips to Avoid Testing Irregularities
•
•
•
•
Adhere to test security policies, protocols and procedures.
Reinforce the use of active monitoring in testing environments.
Immediately report any possible testing irregularities.
Properly identify all students who should receive accommodations
prior to testing.
• Students IEP/IAP/TPC plans should be regularly reviewed to
determine if accommodations are still appropriate or needed.
• If a student is suspected of cheating but there is no proof of his or
her action, allow the student to complete the section and/or entire
test.
– An invalidation can always occur after all of the facts are collected.
• Have a plan in place to quickly secure testing environments and/or
materials in the event of an evacuation during a testing administration.
Tips to Avoid Testing Irregularities
For Online Testing
• Please use the system readiness tools to monitor the district’s
network infrastructure and capability prior to and during
testing.
• If you encounter connectivity issues
– prior to the start of testing, please use your best judgment as to
whether or not to allow students to begin testing
– during Section I testing, please use your best judgment as to whether
or not to allow students to continue on to Section II
• Student Authorization Tickets must be used to verify student
name and GTID prior to testing.
Student Authorization Ticket
Students
must verify
and sign their
names
Allb Allcorrect
To avoid a student testing under another student’s GTID, you must :
1. Print ALL Student Authorization Tickets;
2. Have students verify AND sign their names BEFORE testing begins
Receipt of Materials
• Materials will be delivered on one of three distribution dates.
• System Test Coordinators must:
– Ensure sufficient quantities of materials are provided for each school.
– Locate pickup/return instructions, memo, return labels, and
airbills/bills of lading.
– For any discrepancies, contact Pearson Customer Call Center at 888705-9414.
• School Test Coordinators should sign for materials and verify
counts.

Test Deck Process/Approval to Proceed
• Systems are required to complete the test deck process prior to the start
of the Spring Administration.
• The test deck process includes required steps that must be completed
prior to scanning the test deck (i.e.: removing current local scanning
software and downloading new software), as well as test deck materials.
– Test deck materials include Class ID sheets and Answer Documents that you will scan
and upload to Pearson for review.
– Please do not grid test deck materials. Doing so could delay the test deck process and
result in a district not being able to participate in local scanning.
• In mid March, Pearson will send email notification to System Testing
Coordinators of when test decks are being sent to districts. Test decks
should be sent out the week of March 28th.
• System Test Coordinators must complete their test deck process no later
than April 18th, 2014.
Test Deck Process/Approval to Proceed
• Test deck process must be completed by April 19th.
– Failure to do so will result in a district’s inability to
participate in local scanning for the Spring 2014
administration.
• Once Pearson validates the successful transmission of the test
decks, email notification will be sent to the System Testing
Coordinator with approval to scan “live” answer documents.
Do not scan “live” student Answer Documents prior
to Pearson’s authorization.
High Level Process Overview –

High Level Process Overview
Local Scanning Process:
The Golden Rule
• The Golden Rule: If a batch has already been
uploaded (sent to Pearson), it cannot be uploaded
again or modified.
Local Scanning Process
•
Prior to Scanning: Review batch for accuracy. Have a second certified
employee review the batch.
Batch
Confirm all required fields are complete on the Class ID Sheet
and the accuracy of each field.
Confirm the Answer Documents behind the Class ID sheet
contain all of the students that should be reported under that
Class ID sheet.
Local Scanning Process
Scanning Process
Once a batch has been scanned, a batch number is assigned.
- Batch Number= Teacher Name, School Name, System Name, Subject from Class ID
Sheet.
The local scanning software will begin a series of checks against the batch to
determine if this is a new batch being scanned and/or uploaded.
Possible scenarios:
1.
If an operator scans a new batch (batch does not exist on the scanner); no
error messages will occur.
2.
If an operator scans a batch that’s already been scanned, but has not
been uploaded, the operator will be prompted to perform one of the
following actions:
•
Create: a new batch ID is created for the documents being actively
scanned
•
Replace: replaces the previously scanned batch with the newly
scanned batch
•
Append: adds new records to the original scanned batch
Local Scanning Process

3.
If an Answer Document has been scanned in a previous batch, it
cannot be scanned into another batch. It can only exist in one batch.
Options:
1. “Resume Scanning” will act as if the duplicate Answer Document doesn’t
exist and will not scan it again.
2. If the Answer Document belongs in this batch, you may remove it from
Batch 000005 (for example) as long as that batch has not been uploaded.
Re-scan Batch 00005 without the “duplicate” Answer Document & select
“Replace.”

Procedural Guidelines
Responsible Parties:
• System Test Coordinators or School Test Coordinators are responsible for
the scanning and/or supervision of scanning End-of-Course Tests (EOCT)
answer documents.
– Scanning should take place with a minimum of two certified employees
present.
– Paraprofessionals or clerical staff should not scan documents.
Training:
• Ultimate responsibility lies with System Test Coordinators to ensure
certified employees are trained on the local scanning process.
• Any employee participating in the local scanning process must receive
appropriate training and demonstrate an understanding of the entire
process before being permitted to scan documents.
• Training should take place in advance of the actual scanning of documents.
Procedural Guidelines
Security:
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
At no time should students be allowed to scan and/or assist with the scanning of
documents nor should they be allowed in the area where documents are being
scanned or stored.
Teachers of EOCT courses should not be allowed to scan documents.
Scanning should take place with a minimum of two certified employees present.
Answer documents for Braille students should not be scanned locally. Please
return those documents to Pearson for processing.
Verify that all bubbled information is accurate and complete. Ensure the correct
form number is gridded prior to the start of scanning.
Scanning should be completed immediately at the end of the system’s testing
window.
Irregularities and Invalidations will be coded on answer documents in the same
manner as documents that are sent to Pearson for scoring.
Procedural Guidelines
Scanning Environment:
• There should be one central location where scanning will take place;
individual schools should not be allowed to scan documents.
– With the exception of districts with only one school participating.
• If systems with only one school participating in local scanning choose to
have all scanning take place at that school, the School Test Coordinator
should be designated to scan documents and supervise scanning at the
school level
– The System Test Coordinator should supervise this process in all cases
possible.
Procedural Guidelines
After Scanning:
•
•
•
•
Immediately after scanning, the System Test Coordinator must submit the file to Pearson for
reporting.
Submit the file only ONCE.
The System Test Coordinator is responsible for the secure delivery of results to schools.
A centrally located secure (and dry) area must be available for storage of scanned answer
documents after completion of scanning.
–
•
•
These documents remain secured test materials even after scanning is completed.
DO NOT SEND LOCALLY SCANNED ANSWER DOCUMENTS BACK TO PEARSON DURING THE
ADMINISTRATION WINDOW. Special labels will be sent after the administration for the
return of these documents.
– In the event that scanned documents are inadvertently returned to Pearson, systems
run the risk of documents being re-scanned by Pearson which will create problems
with the scoring process and will delay system and state reports.
Test Booklets must be returned to Pearson. Please ensure there are no Answer Documents in
the books before returning them.
Proper Packaging & Return of Local Scanned
Answer Documents
• For the Spring 2014 administration, local scanning districts will be
receiving a packet with specific instructions for returning answer
documents AFTER the conclusion of the STATE testing window on June
6th, 2014.
• Answer Documents will be returned during a designated window, using
special return labels (Peach color).
• These locally scanned documents should be returned free of damage and
in an organized fashion for long-term storage by Pearson.
• Do NOT return the following materials to Pearson:
– All manuals, unused/voided answer documents, scratch paper. These
must be shredded or destroyed.
• Remember, failure to return secure testing materials constitutes a breach
of test security.
CERTIFICATION OF ADHERENCE TO LOCAL
SCANNING PROCEDURES
• All System Test Coordinators and certified personnel
responsible for scanning End-of-course Tests (EOCT) must sign
a Certification of Adherence to Local Scanning Procedures
form.
• Please remember that this form:
– can be found on the EOCT resources page under “Other Documents
and Resources” near bottom of the page
– was revised and now includes a line for the Superintendent’s signature
– a copy must be forwarded to GaDOE immediately after all scanning is
finished/uploaded
– and also kept on file with the System Test Coordinator

Frequently Asked Questions
1.
When scanning a batch, I receive a message prompting me to Create, Replace, or
Append.
If you are scanning a batch that’s already been scanned, but has not been uploaded, you
will be prompted to do one of the following:
Create: a new batch ID will be created for the documents being actively scanned.
Replace: the previously scanned batch will be replaced with the newly scanned batch.
Append: new records will be added to the original scanned batch.
2.
When scanning a batch, I received an error message stating the batch has already been
sent to Pearson and cannot be changed by scanning new or re-scanning previous
answer sheets.
Once a batch has been uploaded to Pearson, you are unable to scan the batch again. A
transmitted batch cannot be changed.
Frequently Asked Questions
3.
When uploading a batch, I received an error message stating the selected batch
has already been sent to Pearson and cannot be sent again.
Once a batch has been uploaded, the batch has already been sent, and cannot be
uploaded again.
Frequently Asked Questions
4.
I received an error message indicating the scanner has stopped, and a specific examination
cannot be added to a different batch.
This message occurs if an Answer Document has already been scanned (but not uploaded) in a
previous batch. An Answer Document can only exist in one batch. Two options exist when this
message occurs:
a) The “Resume Scanning” button will act as if the duplicate Answer Document does not exist
and will not scan it again.
b) The “Stop Scanning” button can be used if you want to remove the Answer Document that’s
already been scanned in another batch, allowing you to scan it in this batch. You can only do
this if the batch it was originally scanned in has not been uploaded.
•
•
•
Select “Stop Scanning” and remove the batch you are currently attempting to scan. Set it aside.
Locate the batch that was scanned that had this Answer Document in it. Rescan that batch
(without the Answer Document) and select “Replace” when prompted.
Rescan the batch that was set aside. Since you’ve removed the Answer Document
from the other batch, you will be allowed to scan it in the current batch.
Frequently Asked Questions
5.
I received the below error message indicating the scanner has stopped, and a
specific examination cannot be rescanned because it’s already been sent to
Pearson.
This error message indicates that a Answer Document that you are trying to scan has already
been uploaded in another batch. No changes can be made. Select the “Resume Scanning”
button and the scanner will act as if the duplicate Answer Document does not exist, and will
allow you to continue the scanning of the current batch.
Frequently Asked Questions
6.
Can I scan multiple Class ID sheets within the same “batch”?
No. One Class ID sheet and the corresponding answer documents below it equal one
batch.
7.
I am getting Software Installation (JIT) Errors when I try to install the scanning
software.
These errors arise from the failure of the client operator to have sufficient computer
authority to install software. Make sure the operator has sufficient access rights to
perform the installation. Your system’s technical support contact should be able to help
with this error.
8.
I am getting FTP Communications Errors.
These errors are usually caused by system configuration issues. Contact your system’s
technical support. The most common causes of FTP communication issues are:
•
Failure to open an FTP path through the local firewall
•
Use of Proxy servers requiring a reconfiguration of Windows Internet
Explorer.
Frequently Asked Questions
9.
I am receiving an error message that says: Neither the bar code or GTID
numbers resolved properly. This examination form must be manually
corrected before it can be accepted.
Barcode reader errors can have several different causes. If you are having issues with
barcodes, take the following steps:
•
Make sure the barcode reader is correctly positioned to read the bar code on
the answer document. The correct setting for your barcode reader is 6.8. You
may need to alter this standard setting very slightly once you’ve confirmed the
barcode reader is correctly positioned to read the bar code.
•
Many scanners have a hardware diagnostic for determining the state of the bar
code device. See your scanner documentation for information on the
availability of this tool.
Frequently Asked Questions
10.
I am getting an �Invalid Form ID’ error.
Form ID errors result from the scanner not recognizing the document that is
being scanned. If you received this error, check for the following:
•
Incorrect placement of documents in the hopper. Make sure
documents are placed face up with the bottom of the document
feeding in first.
•
Invalid documents. Only the documents sent with your Spring 2014
materials should be used.
•
The scanner is not configured to read the EOCT answer documents.
