OMS can scan exams OR homework assignments for instructors who use Gradescope. Our services include orienting, cutting off staples or booklet bindings, scanning, uploading to Gradescope and matching to roster. We can provide any or all of these services for projects that require scanning paper into PDF format.

After the exam has been administered, please send answer sheets (via Campus Courier) or bring to OMS, along with a Gradescope Order Form.

University policy dictates that completed exams must not be sent through campus mail. Click here for delivery instructions and office hours and location. (Note: if sending homework assignments for PDF scanning, University policy does not require secure handling. However, we do not recommend sending via campus mail because deliveries are not tracked, and may be delayed in transit.)

Exams are processed within 24 hours of receipt and results are provided securely to instructors.
