Print scanforms for your students

Last Updated: Sep 06, 2013 10:41AM CDT

Review your classes

To print scanforms for tests, we look at the subject and grade of the test and pull all students scheduled in a class with the same subject and grade. For example, if a test has a subject and grade of MA:03, scanforms will print for all students scheduled in a class that has a subject and grade of MA:03.

Click the 'classes' tab

Scanform Pointers

To assure scan forms are processed properly, please observe the following:
Make sure your scanner is clean and your printer has a fresh ink cartridge. Scan forms MUST be scanned with the size setting of 'Letter' (8.5" x 11"). Grayscale works best because color scanning generates really large file which may take awhile to send through your email system. Your scanner should be set to at least 200 DPI.
The barcodes and three orientation circles are necessary and must be unaltered and clear when sent to us, encourage students to leave them alone completely.
Bubbles must be filled in completely. Checks, Xs, or incomplete circles may not be read. Multiple bubbles for one question will not be read. If multiple marks are detected then the answer will not be scored at all (same scoring as skipping a question).

Email Scanforms

Email your completed scan forms to
Many all-in-one scanners/copiers/printers have a scan-to-email function that will scan directly to automating the process in your schools. You do not need to purchase any additional scanning software.
You can also scan in all the scanforms and save them as a pdf (or JPG) and attach the pdf to an email and send the email to
Triand will automatically grade the scansheets within minutes of receiving the email at View the report to see students' scores.

FTP Scanforms

If your school/district has a limit to how big emails can be that are sent, you may want to FTP your scanforms.
You can anonymously FTP your scan forms to: Your initial login directory should be: ~triand/scans/
Every three minutes we pull all files in this directory and process them as if you had emailed them directly to
