Scantron roster upload


IT makes available to UM instructors a Scantron grading machine with ParScore scoring software. This combination can be used to grade exams where answers are recorded on Scantron forms. Scantron forms are available at the UM Bookstore. Scantron form No. F-289-PAR-L

Please note that the green NCS forms that are clearly marked Psychology will NOT work with the IT Scantron machine.

Once the service is submitted, you will receive a reply in no more than 2 working days letting you know that your roster is loaded and ready to use. At this point, you can reserve time on Scantron; see “I need to schedule the Scantron machine” service.

How to Request

  1. Click the "Request Service" button.
  2. If you have any questions on the form please contact IT Central at or call 243-4357
  3. Once submitted the lab manager will extract your roster from Banner, modify it for ParScore(Scantron software) and will upload it into ParScore.
  4. You will receive an email once the upload is complete letting you know that you can start using Scantron. The upload will include the student ID number as well as the students name.
  5. Once you receive the confirmation email call IT Central Help Desk at 243-4357 to schedule a time to use the Scantron machine. Many professors from all departments use this machine so you must reserve an open block of time when you want to come in and use the machine.


The form will ask you if you need training. IT Central technicians or the lab manager can train at the start of your appointment. Also, review the Scantron test grading manual .

They will create a Outlook reservation on the IT Labs Scantron Outlook calendar. Please provide your name, instructor’s name, course name (i.e. BIOB 160), course title, contact information and whether you need training. You will receive an Outlook meeting reservation from IT Labs Scantron.

During the majority of the year the Scantron machine may be scheduled for up to 1.5 hours at a time. Reservations will be cancelled at 15 minutes past the reserved time and the machine will be opened up for walk-in traffic.  

During finals week, reservations must be limited to one hour blocks. Reserve your time for finals week early. Reservation blocks fill up early.
