OMR stands for Optical Mark Reader or Recognition OMR is used to read forms which have variable size field entries and the entry can be in form of a check mark, a cross, or some scribble. These forms include but are not restricted to automated entry sheets where the user needs to fill in an oval shape with a number 2 pencil. OMR usually needs a blank form and a definition of entry zones. The OMR detects marks in the scanned image and classifies them accordingly. OMR Sheet is document which is printed with OMR specifications, our OMR Software can read a normal paper OMR sheet or OMR Scanner OMR Sheet.

Standard Definition:

OMR Sheet is one of the "security print document" which is configured in such a manner that it is difficult to reproduce by anyone else, but easy to be identified by the owner as original. The idea behind using these sheets is to make form processing 'An Easy and a Fast process'. These OMR Sheets are extensively used by educational institutions across the world.

They meet the needs of -

  • Competitive & Standard Examinations
  • Data Procuring Process

Timing Tracks are rectangular blocks on the side of OMR Sheets which defines the location of rows on the sheet. Timing Tracks indicate where to read for marks and indicate where to clip for images. Timing Tracks are very important in OMR Sheets as they need to be placed in the straight line along oval blocks as incorrect placement will lead to non-readable OMR Sheets.

OMR Sheets are special printouts containing circles or e bubbles or boxes used as marking areas where the candidate marks using a blue/black pen or pencil.

OMR Answer sheets are also OMR sheets that are used for objective tests based on Multiple Choice Question (MCQ) Test pattern, where the candidates indicate their answers by marking the circles/boxes given on the OMR Sheet, its help to easily record the responses.

OMR Answer Sheets are basically used by educational institution for conducting Objective test for Admission or Scholarship. The OMR Sheet Reader is a software that reads these specific locations and converts the information into data.

Any desktop scanner can be used with OMR Software but ADF (Automatic document feeder) document scanners are the most preferred one.

No OMR Sheet cannot be used as a photo copy or in single color. Single color OMR sheet or Photo copy of OMR Sheet cannot be used as OMR Sheet, as it cannot provide accuracy during the scanning.

Any information on OMR Sheets can be captured using OMR Software. The information captured may vary depending on your needs

The biggest advantage of using OMR Software is that it is the most cost-effective way to evaluate scanned OMR Sheets and process results accordingly.

The recommended OMR Sheet width is 8.5 inches which is standard A4 sheet width. The height of the OMR Sheet can increase as per the requirement.

The accuracy of the data captured is 100%, if circles are properly filled.
