AMC 10/12 B Scan Week: Tips for Uploading Your Answer Sheets

Congratulations on Administering the AMC 10/12 B!

If you administered the competition digitally, you should be able to view your scores and no further action is required. 

As a reminder, the awarding categories (e.g. Honor Roll of Distinction) and American Invitational Mathematics Examination (AIME) qualifiers will be released in student score reports in early December after all AMC 10/12 scanning has been received. Please note that during this first cycle we will not release scores directly to students, only to Competition Managers. 

If you used Print & Scan Administration, it's time to scan in your student's Answer Sheets if you have not done so already! The deadline is Monday, Nov. 28

SCAN DEADLINE UPDATE: Please note that Nov. 28 is now the deadline for scanning the AMC 10/12 A as well.

 Below you'll find tips to streamline the process.
Step 1: Scan Your Answer Sheets
Please make sure you're scanning the document as a TIF or TIFF file (NOT in another format later converted to TIFF) in black and white (not color or grayscale). Please use at least 300 dpi, and scan in 8.5 x 11” page size.

Not scanning in this format could result in scoring issues, especially if the scanned file is illegible.

We recommend that you feed all of your Answer Sheets together through the scanner so that it becomes one TIFF file to upload. However, you can also individually scan each Answer Sheet and upload them in a ZIP file. The ZIP file must contain original TIFF files.

Other tips for a clean scan:

1) Make sure you can see both barcodes and squares in each of the four corners. These need to be read by our system to file the sheet with the correct student.

2) Bubbles need to be fully filled in - please complete the bubbles if your students did not do so, to ensure legibility in our system.

Not sure how to scan your files as TIFFs? 

Here is a sample guide to scan images as TIFF. Please note that the actual steps can differ for each scanner. If you cannot see the option on a scanner at school, please contact your IT department.
Step 2: Upload Your Answer Sheets
Once you've scanned your Answer Sheets, please check the clarity of the files. Open your Competition Administration Portal to upload them. Please use the drop-down list at the top to ensure you are in the correct competition (10 B or 12 B) corresponding to the Answer Sheets you are about to upload.

Click on “Upload Answer Sheets” in the right column. Click on “Choose Files,” select the TIFF file or ZIP file of TIFF images from the pop-up file explorer window, and click “Open” in the lower right-hand corner of the pop-up screen.

Then click the “Upload” button.

You'll be taken to a screen that asks you to review your scans for quality before submitting them. This screen will also inform you if the file format is invalid.

Please re-scan and re-upload if the images do not look clear and legible. If they are fine, click the submit button on the top left.
Step 3: Check Your Uploads
You can see your uploads on the "Upload History" page, which is also on the right side of your Competition Administration Portal below “Upload Answer Sheets.” Click on the “View” link at the end of each row to see the scan.

If a student’s name and ID are not visible in the row, as in the highlighted row in the screenshot above, then it means that your student's answer sheet is being held for review. Once the student's answers have been manually validated and approved, they will appear in your portal. This is likely to occur if the quality is poor. If possible, please re-scan and re-upload your student's Answer Sheet. 

Please note that if you accidentally uploaded the same file twice, our system can handle the duplicate files. You do not need to delete the duplicate.

If all of your students’ Answer Sheets are showing up in your Upload History with their names and IDs and look clear, you're good to go! 

Your student scores should be available after you have scanned the competitions unless they have been flagged for manual review; in this case, they will be missing from your score reports.
