Overview of Scoring

Galileo provides you with the tools to view the automatically scored test results and to score test items manually. The following test items will need to be scored manually:

  • Short Answer items if the test was taken offline. If the test was taken online by a student, you will want to double check the student's answer. When the computer corrects short answer items taken online, it does a character-by-character comparison. If the student misspelled his or her answer, failed to capitalize an answer, or used a synonym, Galileo will mark the answer wrong.
  • Open Response items if the test was taken either online or offline. If taken online, you may read the student response off of the computer screen.
  • Work Sample if the test was taken either online or offline
