Scoring schemes for questions that require written responses or include uploading a file do not have a strict answer key in the same way that questions that require multiple choice or Yes/No responses do. For teachers and educators, scoring will inevitably involve making some subjective judgments about the quality of students’ responses.
Scoring Tool is a feature of Enterprise Manager that enables educators and trainers to annotate and grade essay questions within assessments by using customized rubrics. Scoring Tool helps both individual and multiple graders maintain consistency in marking constructed answers. This is achieved by using the Scoring Tool to define rubrics, or scoring rules, for each question. For example, the rubric for a history essay might assign points to grammar, spelling, persuasiveness and quality of research.

Results Management System
The Results Management System (RMS) is an application that enables users of Perception to analyze and modify results stored in a Perception repository. It is designed to help organizations modify the results that they have administered because one or more questions are identified as performing poorly. The following diagram illustrates how the RMS works.
For more information on the RMS, please refer to the RMS User Guide.
