We have been working very hard at a new Remark Test Grading Cloud release and are excited to announce that it is now live! There are so many awesome new features that we don't know where to begin! Some of the highlights include:

  • An updated form designer that lets you include images, labels, new bubble shapes, question text,  and answer text. Your forms have never looked better!
  • Custom Grade Scales so that you can define your own scale at both the overall test and learning objectives levels.
  • Grade tests right when you log into the application through the new Grade Test option right on the home screen. No need to select a class and test first!
  • Streamlined process for adding learning objectives to your tests... fewer clicks are always better!
  • Email fillable PDF test answer sheets to students, have them take the test, and then have them email them right back to the cloud for grading. Nothing to print!
  • And so many more...
When you log into Remark Test Grading Cloud be sure to click the notifications icon to see all of the new features and enhancements. We will highlight some of the features in our blog over the next few weeks to show them to you in action.

Upcoming Remark Support Webinar – Using Database Lookup in Remark Office OMR – Tuesday, October 30, 2018, 1:30 PM EDT

Using Database Lookup in Remark Office OMR – Tuesday, October 30, 2018, 1:30 PM EDT
Using Database Lookup in Remark SoftwareRemark Office OMR has a Database Lookup feature that can: 1) verify that the recognized data from a region appears in an external database and 2) after verifying the data, either replace the recognized data with new data, or append additional fields from the database in your collected data. For example, if students fill in their ID numbers on the forms being processed, with database lookup Remark can look up that student ID in an external database and either replace the ID with the student name or append the student name to the data. You can append as many fields as needed to make your data more meaningful. It’s a great way to add data to your reports without having to put it on the physical form.

This webinar is targeted to intermediate Remark Office OMR users.

Sign up for this monthly webinar.

Monthly webinars are free for customers with current maintenance or technical support agreements. If you do not have a current agreement, the cost of each webinar is $50 USD.
