Concordia's IT department provides services to mark multiple choice examinations consisting of up to 120 questions with a choice of ten possible answers per question, or up to 180 questions with a choice of five possible replies. Exams will be returned to the professor with detailed results via the MyConcordia portal.
Also available at IITS are services to process and compile statistics from student research surveys. All forms and documentation can be obtained from IITS in LB 800 (Sir George Williams Campus) or CC 206 (Loyola Campus).
