The Optical mark recognition process is a fairly simple process and saves many hours of time, delivering captured analysis data in a minimal time frame, using your existing printer, computer and scanner.
Use the visual omr sheet template editor which has the tools needed for easily adding banks of checkboxes to easily make an omr template compatible with optical mark recognition . As you design and add questions to a page, you are also setting the definition of the question names and checkbox values (for the data you are exporting in step-4). The template designed in the omr sheet editor can be saved as a reusable file. This is a much easier way of designing OMR sheet templates rather than trying to use special fonts in a word processing document.
OMR sheets scanned, using a document scanner and processed by optical mark recognition on a Mac OS X laptop computer.
Collect any page at any time, scan it in and because of the page identifying barcode on each page, the optical mark recognition processor will know exactly where the form belongs and which template it belongs to … just scan and go. Any errors that people have made with filling in their form can be corrected with the page re-processor function before exporting the captured data to a spreadsheet.
A clearly scanned omr sheet can be accurately detected by optical mark recognition and processed into captured analysis data.
Optical Mark Recognition detects and captures the checkboxes that contain a dark mark. This is a fast process taking only a matter of seconds for each scanned omr page and converts the detected checkbox marks into value data, collecting a score if an answer key rule was set for the correctly marked checkboxes.
Optical mark recognition result data is exported to a spreadsheet by simply clicking the export button. Captured ID numbers are matched with the responses. This is an automatic process which reconciles recipient information with their responses.
