The students will be allowed to make an X on a response that they have changed their minds about... If they change their mind again, they can circle the X'd out answer.

We are instructing our students to mark the answers in the answer booklet on the first go round and then transfer to the scan sheet when they are satisfied with the answers they have chosen. Who knows if they will follow that direction, but we can hope!

I heard from a teacher that there is a specific way students have to mark incorrect answers since the scan sheets will be filled out in pen. Can anyone confirm this? My students have difficulty following the most basic of directions so if this is the case, I imagine it will be a nightmare!

You can score the part 1 questions if you want, but the state will only use the scanned scores the outside company obtains. You cannot count your scoring. The two companies that are doing the scoring will provide the scaled scores. This is mandatory for the Algebra regents this year, but optional for the other 2 regents. Next year all exams are graded this way.

We are scanning all of our regents exams in all courses this way.

Yes, you can score the part 1s. But, if I recall correctly from the sheets we had last year, we were not to make any marks on that side of the page. Thus, we used a transparency overlay. Regardless, I've found the transparency overlay to be quicker and more accurate, so it's win-win. I can grade several part 1's per minute with 100% accuracy. Personally, I would not want to wait a day or days to get my students' scores back from someone else. This is especially true of the Geometry Regents - test Thursday morning, grades due very early Friday. Last year, my physics grades were due Friday morning by 9. I'd imagine the same will apply to geometry. We *can't* wait to get grades back from someone else.

I don't think you are supposed to grade by hand any of the Part I's. They will be scanned and graded when uploaded to the state site. We were told to only do the Part II, III and IV.

In reference to grading by hand:

In the past we have put a red mark through the number of the incorrect question. There was a statement in the memos from the state about not making stray marks on the answer sheets. Are they referring to those red marks as well? Producing a transparency layover is fine but when you're grading 100+ exams they run together and mistakes are easily made- even when you're part of a department that double and triple checks the already double and triple checked exams. What are other people planning to do?
