Remark Classic OMR Software

The Remark Classic OMR® software scans and processes data from tests, assessments, surveys and other forms. The software is combined with an OMR (Optical Mark Recognition) scanner to recognize filled-in marks on forms ("fill in the bubble" forms), which automates the data collection process. This software gives you the great data collection, test grading, and survey analysis features of Remark Office OMR, but works with traditional OMR scanners and preprinted forms from Scantron, Chatsworth Data, Sekonic and Apperson

Defining Forms

Remark Classic OMR is very flexible in that it can work with most any form that works with a traditional OMR machine. Remark Classic OMR uses a template for each form type that is to be recognized. The template holds the information that allows the software to recognize the areas of data on the form and produce output. Remark Classic OMR works with many standard forms that are in use today.

Remark Classic OMR comes with a Template Editor for this process. Training is a simple procedure where you create a template for a form by defining the areas on the form containing data to be processed. You then fill in some information about each of these areas and through this process the software "learns" how to process your form.

Reading Forms

The Remark Classic OMR software works with a supported OMR scanner to read and process your forms. Remark Classic OMR recognizes data from OMR fields (bubble fields). For supported scanners, the software also supports the optional barcode reader, the transport printer, and also the reject stacker. Built in exception handling easily locates and allows you to correct or verify any erroneously marked forms.

Data Export

Once your forms have been scanned, the software can save the data to one of over 35 different output formats for use with virtually any analysis package (such as SPSS, dBase, Access, Excel or ASCII).

Data Analysis with Remark Quick Stats®

Remark Classic OMR includes the Remark Quick Stats® application, which provides powerful test grading and survey analysis functions with the click of a button. If you administer tests, the software can automatically grade them. You can specify an answer key, grade scale, extra credit questions, map questions to learning objectives, scaled scores, set benchmark values and more using the Grade Wizard. Then the software can grade the test and produce reports representing the students' performance, item analysis, frequency distribution, student scores and other data. Remark Quick Stats also produces a grade report for each student which can be printed and handed back.The grade information can be exported to a variety of grade books, student management systems and learning management systems through a variety of export formats.
