Option #2 – If you DO NOT have a Grade Item for this exam in your D2L Grades area, in the [Name] field, enter the name of the exam as you’d like for it to appear in your D2L Grades area.

You’ll receive results for the "resolved" exam scores and the exam results with "errors."  Both reports will be formatted as Comma Delimited (.csv files).  The "resolved" exam scores can be upload to D2L after checking the data in MS Excel.  

The exam results with "errors" are the scores from students who did not enter their Student ID numbers correctly on the Scantron sheets when taking the exam.  The data for these scores cannot be keyed to the students, so scores will need to be entered into the D2L Grade Item manually.

  1. To begin checking the "resolved" exam scores in MS Excel, click [Export] below "Download resolved."

Depending on your computer and browser configurations, you should receive an option to open the .CSV file using Microsoft Excel.

  2. The [Last Name] and [First Name] can be used to key student grades.  Don’t change the names in this column.
  3. The Scantron scores with be listed in a column headed with the name you entered in Step #2.
