Gravic, Inc. is excited to announce the release of version 4 of our popular Remark Classic OMR software. Remark Classic OMR provides a solution for data collection, test scoring and survey tabulation using preprinted OMR (“fill in the bubble”) forms and OMR scanners from Scantron, Sekonic, Apperson, and Chatsworth Data. When driven by Remark Classic OMR, these scanners read completed bubbles and save the data in an electronic format. The software can grade tests and tabulate survey results, provide sophisticated data analysis and graphs, or export data to many commonly used formats, making it compatible with most outside analysis programs and databases. Schools, training or testing services, researchers, large companies, and government agencies commonly use this system to process high volumes of tests, surveys, or other forms.

Gravic has added support for many new OMR scanners and predefined templates for standard OMR forms for Scantron, Sekonic, Apperson and Chatsworth Data. The new version also supports respondent detection so you can see who has and has not completed your test or survey. Other new features include the ability to email reports and data from Remark Classic OMR, full support for Windows 7 and Microsoft Office 2010, and major SPSS file format enhancements. The SPSS format has been completely overhauled, providing longer variable names, easier template set up and more customizable export. In addition, the software works in conjunction with Remark Web Survey® to automatically convert paper forms to HTML and integrate paper and online surveys.

Remark Classic OMR includes Remark Quick Stats®, an analysis component that grades tests, analyzes surveys, and generates many powerful reports. With Version 4 you have the ability to exclude NA (non-applicable) answer choices from the statistics and still see how many respondents chose the NA response. There are several new reports and report enhancements added to Remark Quick Stats, including a Question Mean report showing means for all questions in a concise format, Student Response Report showing score data for all students and questions on a test in a graphical format, Basic Item Analysis Report showing question response frequencies and, if grading, additional distractor and student score data, and support for scaled or translated scoring whereby an external table can be accessed in order to translate total, percent, or percentile score into a translated or scaled score.
