Paper Forms for Self Scoring Tests

This teaching aid uses expendable paper form 10 in re-usable fixture 12. The latter comprises baseboard 14, aperture sheet 16, and conventional form holding devices hidden behind overlapping cover sheets 21...26. Baseboard 14 is a sturdy cardboard or plastic sheet of insulating material. A plurality of electric lamps 41...40 is mounted on baseboard 14 The lamps and the terminals of power source 42 are mounted on baseboard 14 in conventional manner.

Printed circuit conductors 44a...44e are laid down on baseboard 14 parallel to each other and underlying the apertures of sheet 116 Printed circuit conductor 46a, 46b, 46c, etc., are laid down on the reverse of form 10 to overlie the apertures of sheet 16. Enlarged terminal areas 48a...48k make contact with terminal areas 49a...49k leading to lamps 31, 32, 33, etc., to complete lamp circuits. These have elastic diaphragm switches formed by the conductors 44a, 44b, 44c, etc., the aperture sheet 16 and conductors 46a, 46b, 46c, etc.

Initially, sheets 21...26 overlie form 10. When the test begins, the student raises the first cover sheet 21 and reads the instructions printed on the reverse side. The student then presses a finger at one of the spots designated for entering an answer. This closes one of the elastic diaphragm switches causing the lamp in the circuit, so completed, to light. The student then proceeds in accordance with the instructions corresponding to the lamp is lighted. A...
