The scan sheets will download into a file. Please open the file and review the scan sheets before printing.

Scanning your GradeCam Scan Sheet
1. Click Testing
2. Click Scan With GradeCam
Click Scan next to the Test ID.
Once you click scan you may need to wait for your system to recognize your camera.
A black Grade Cam screen on the scanning page is normal and means the camera on the computer has not been engaged yet.
Camera image never populates:
» Refreshing the browser
» Closing and reopening the browser
» Double check to see if the camera is supported by Grade Cam
» Ensure the camera is directly connected to the computer NOT
routed through another piece of equipment
» Ensure the browser settings have the correct camera selected
(also refreshing browser after selecting appropriate camera)
» Checking if camera drivers are up to date
Scanning the Sheet:
Place the scan sheet in front of the camera.
» A Green box around the scanned image indicates a successful read
» A Yellow box indicates a box is detected but not read/aligned/focused/etc.
Poor alignment is mostly accounted for and accepted by the system.
Camera cannot/will not read the scan sheet:
» Adjusting light (too dark / too bright)
» Focusing the camera
» Change the distance of document from camera
» Change the angle the document is at
» Lamination may cause glare, adjust lighting and/or angle
Limited to improper and illegible bubbling.
» Improper bubbling (x’s on bubbles, lines through bubbles, etc.) prompts the system to NOT scan these sheets.
» A pop up will prompt and allow the user to select intended answer bubbles only when the bubbles are
illegible to the system (similar to the LSO system)
» The “Show Results” tab shows student responses and potential errors. Clicking this shows the entire selection of student’s responses during the current scanning session.
» Edits are to be made while scanning scan sheets because images are not retained and cannot be referenced again. For example, accidental double bubbles and not clearly erased answers can be adjusted at this time.
