grad--- Grading the exam
Once you have a file
grfix, or some other method of combining
the key file and the mark-sense-form (repaired) output, you are ready to
Grad will prompt you for input:
Mark sense file?* exam1.ok List file?* exam1.lis(of course you can use some base name other than exam1, such as 203f07h1)
The list file
exam1.lis contains a log
of the input specifications, the student performances, an "ITEM ANALYSIS"
of the group's performance on each question, and a histogram and statistics
of the results.
In addition to the list file,
grad asks if
you want to produce four other files,
exam1.she, which can be uploaded into the
gradebookso the students can see how they did on each question, as well as their overall score.
exam1.sco, which can be uploaded into the
gradebookas the student's grades.
You will have to give names for the files you requested:

If you want to print the list file, you need to do so in some way that

enscript -fCourier9 -r exam1.lis
Another is the old
lnd command, which
is now called
lprland exam1.lis .
You should check over your
.lis file. See if students would have done
significantly better on a different master. Check question performance
to look for anomolies.
