    For 21st-century schools, testing is a fact of life. Remark Software is an industry-leading school software solution that understands what you’re facing.

    2. Use your own paper. Just print your customized bubble test sheets on regular copy paper. No time-wasting searches for the specialized paper required.

    3. User-friendly grading. Using your scanner or multifunction printer, scan your students’ completed answer sheets into the software platform.

  2. Software Delivers Revolutionary Testing Solutions

    Leave a Comment

    Remark Software has revolutionized the way educational institutions and other organizations read data. For years, school leaders were limited to traditional OMR (Optical Mark Recognition ) software solutions that were inflexible and expensive.

    The Major Differences

    Traditional OMR differs from Remark Software in two major categories—paper and hardware—and the breakthroughs are significant.

    Traditional OMR

    School leaders are all too familiar with traditional OMR products—practically the only solution for standardized testing until now. Traditional OMR products serve their purpose well, but the disadvantages are sometimes difficult to overcome:

    • Because traditional OMR forms are difficult to print on standard office equipment, expensive pre-printed forms are often the only option.
    • All forms must follow exact specifications or the scanning process will fail.
    • Students are limited to using #2 pencils.
    • Fill-in-the-bubble answers are the only option offered.
    • Specially designed OMR readers are required for accurate scans.

    Remark Software

    As a school software solution, Remark Software is less expensive and offers much greater flexibility.

    • Users can create forms using any style of page layout.
    • Students are not limited to #2 pencils—pens, pencils, or even markers will work.
    • No specialized paper is required.
    • Users can produce forms using their existing multifunction copier or laser printer.

    Data Collection and Analysis

    Remark Software isn’t limited to grading tests; it includes analysis and data collection capabilities to take reporting to the next level.

    Remark Quick Stats allows teachers and administrators to grade tests, tabulate surveys and email or print reports with a few clicks. Handwritten comments can be displayed on customized reports, and non-applicable (NA) responses can also be tabulated and verified for greater accuracy.

Reports can also be generated showing changed answers by individual students.

    2. Class and Student Reports — These individualized and classwide reports are useful in that they give instructors an overview of total class performance. Reports included are Comparative Grade Report, Demographic Grade Report, Student Achievement Report, Student Grade Report, Student Response Report, Student Response Similarities, and Student Statistics Report. Each report provides bar chart graphics and can be used to inform students and their parents on individual performance and whether or not a student has grasped the subject matter.

    3. Item Analysis Reports — These detailed reports help teachers analyze the validity of individual questions and help show how students responded to each question. Problem questions can then be reworded or thrown out.
