Programming and Data Management
Sometimes the existing computer software cannot address a user request without special programming. The Systems Analysts assist with the development of custom software for test and evaluation scanning, surveys, databases and more.
The Information Technology Division offers optical scanning services for test scoring and survey analysis. Statistical analysis and graphical representation of results are available at the instructors' discretion. Instructors may get not only test scores but also a wide range of optional statistics and breakdowns such as the class mean and standard deviation, a separate listing for different combinations marked on the student forms, an item analysis that shows a frequency count on each Choice A-E for every question,and a percent correct for each question.
A self-service kiosk, located at the ITD Help Desk in KUC 320 is available for use during the Help Desk’s open hours. For assistance in scoring non-standard forms or for complex analysis, please contact an A&ITS systems analyst at (615) 898-5160 or (615) 898-5220.
