Electronic Scoring


An essential key to education is the quality and quantity of the time teachers spend in the classroom teaching. With EASETM, fewer teachers spend less time scoring assessment tests, leaving more teachers with more time to instruct their students. That’s why OSC’s Educational Assessment Scoring EnvironmentTM, EASETM, the first customizable electronic on-site scoring system, is revolutionizing the way assessment tests are scored.

Electronic Scoring with EASETM

Minimizes document handling: There is no need to move stacks of tests and flip through pages and pages of test papers, because all tests are scanned electronically, sorted and organized.

Enables scorers to remain focused: The same question appears on the screen repeatedly so the scorer becomes familiar with the question and focuses on the answers to that particular question.

Organizes multiple page responses: Questions that are answered on multiple pages are viewed onscreen in one combined image.

Features tools that speed scoring: Ruler and protractor functions are readily accessible. New features to aid the scoring process are constantly being developed and added.

Eliminates missing or multiple scores: Scorers cannot proceed until they have scored the question that is currently on screen. They are prevented from advancing if they choose more than one score.

Enforces anonymity to ensure impartiality: The identity of the student is hidden from the scorers. In a regional scoring environment, the student’s school and district are also hidden.

Features real time monitoring: Enables supervisors to monitor the speed and capabilities of scorers in real time. Questionable data is automatically reviewed, and questionable answer patterns are reported.

Is easy to use: After just 5 – 10 minutes of demonstration, even scorers who are not computer savvy are comfortable with the system.
