For over 25 years Remark Office OMR has been the world’s leading software platform for collecting data from tests, surveys and assessments. OMR is the fill in the bubble sheets we’ve seen in schools for decades. Today’s teacher’s want to be able to grade tests, quizzes and assessments as fast as possible, and with device they are comfortable with.
There have been a lot of changes in the OMR industry over the decades. It first began with dedicated machines, you know the one’s where you needed to use a #2 pencil and you had to shade the ovals or bubbles in completely. Eventually the industry moved to grading with other, more consumer and teacher friendly scanners. Today, teacher’s have their pick over which way tests are graded. With the latest version of Remark they can even use their smartphones.
Remark goes beyond just right and wrong answers. Test questions can be linked to common core standards, skills and learning objectives, allowing teachers to get their data back and see how students are performing against the standards.
Gone are the days of needing special sheets for tests. Teachers can develop tests on plain paper. Remark Test Grading is their streamlined test scoring application that allows teachers to print, scan and run reports on tests printed on plain paper.
Remark Test Grading provides a variety of data back to the teacher and reports can include information on the class, student, test and item performance. Teachers can report on standards and skills covered on the test. All of the reports and data can be returned via pdf or synced to grade book systems and even learning management systems (LMS). Schools and districts can decide whether they want Remark Test Grading as a cloud based solution or a locally installed Windows program.
When schools use the Remark Test Grading cloud based solution, their teachers can grade their tests using their smartphones or tablets. Teachers just take a photo of each test in the Adobe Acrobat app. Once all of the tests have been quickly photographed they can be uploaded to the Remark Test Grading cloud via email or through Google Drive making the test grading process even easier.
