How does it work?

A pen or pencil mark is made in pre-defined positions at the document to indicate each selected response (for example: answers to a survey question or an absent pupil in a school register). The complete forms are scanned by the Optical Mark Reader which detects the presence of a mark by measuring reflected light levels. The reader interprets this pattern marks and spaces into a data record and transmits it to your computer for storage, analysis and reporting.
