Chatsworth and Manual Instructions: (These instructions may have to be adapted to your machine and software.)

 

Break Out source code, Break Out Plus, and Power Up Plus all import a text file ending in .ANS or .TXT (or any other text file extension) created with a text editor or Word. Or enter data directly into Sheet1 (text) or Sheet 2 (Excel).

 

Each student record contains a 9 character ID field, 1 blank space, and a string of answer marks.

 

The answer key (VR KEY 50) sets the value of omit (good judgment to not make a wrong mark) to 50%. The weight key, (WT KEY   ) also selects how the question will be processed (see instructions at the bottom of Sheet 2). For the Chatsworth scanner, use 999050111 for the answer key ID and 999000222 for the weight key ID.

 

  1. Click Import to input a text file, or copy and paste into A1, Sheet 1.
