Test Scoring

Testing and Evaluation Services operates optical mark sense readers for scoring multiple choice (single-response) tests. The standard UM test scoring forms allow up to 200 test items with a maximum of five choices per item.

Faculty/Course Evaluations

Colleges and schools at the University of Miami may administer faculty/course evaluations efficiently on the web using CoursEval™ from connectEDU. Along with IT, the Testing and Evaluation Services group provides central support, including survey form design, personalized e-mail invitations and reminders, and summary report access. There is no direct cost to the school. Faculty may view their end-of-semester reports via myUM. Custom report features are available to designated administrators in the colleges and schools. Students complete surveys at their convenience online or via their smart phones or mobile devices without any special set-up. Survey responses are anonymous. Student names or e-mail addresses cannot be connected to any survey data. No survey results are released to faculty until after final grades are posted.

National and State Tests

The University of Miami has discontinued hosting national and state exams on campus. To locate a test site near you, please consult information provided by the testing program. We also no longer offer exam proctoring services.

Survey Design and Tabulation

Testing and Evaluation Services provides consultation on the design of mail surveys. Scanning, and scoring services are also available. One low-cost custom option is the universal survey form. This form allows users to easily design and duplicate machine scannable surveys. Universal survey forms may be purchased from Testing and Evaluation Services. For other options, please contact our office.
