Using the UW-M Scantron-to-D2L Converter

The Scantron-to-D2L Conversion Tool generates a file of test scores that can be converted to a D2L GradeBook import-ready file & one with information about problem Scantron(TM) sheets.

Please Note: You will need to have your students provide their student i.d. number and fill in the corresponding bubbles for the Scantron conversion tool to work.

SUMMARY of the process:

  1. Ask the Testing Center for the appropriate file (tab-delimited .asc file); check the D2L box on the Exam Processing Form.
  2. Use the Scantron-to-D2L Conversion Tool to generate Resolved & Error files.
  3. Use the Resolved file to import scores into D2L. Use the Error file to locate problem Scantron sheets, then manually enter score data from these sheets into D2L.

Click Scantron conversion Utility to open the tool.
