New Remark Test Grading Cloud Feature - Question and Answer Text

With the release of Remark Test Grading Cloud 2.1, we introduced question and answer text when designing test answer sheets. These features allow your tests to be more customized by giving you more options than just straight bubbles. Now you have the following options when creating multiple choice questions in the designer:

  • Bubbles Only: This option puts only the bubbles on the answer sheet (same as it's always been) with the answer choices you provided. This option uses the least amount of space.
  • Table View: This option puts your bubbles in a table and allows you to enter custom question and answer text on the Text and Labels tab.
  • Traditional: This option puts the question text, followed by the bubbles, one question after the other, down the test page. You must fill in the question text and answer labels under the Text and Labels tab.
If you use Table View or Traditional, the Text and Labels tab allows you to define question text and answer labels. Both items appear on the test answer sheets. Note that answer labels are not carried over to the reports (you will still see "A, B, C..."). You can also adjust the font by clicking the "Question Text Style" or "Answer Label Style" buttons.Question Properties The Table tab appears when you use Table View questions. Here you can choose the alignment for your table: Left, Right or Justified. You may alternate shading of the question text by clicking "Shade alternate question rows" (the bubble area is not shaded). Finally, you can use the "Max Question Text" slider bar to choose how much of each table row should be occupied by the question text. The answers will be spread out over the remaining area.

The Traditional tab appears when you use Traditional questions. Here you can choose whether to split the answer choices across multiple columns. Note that Remark Test Grading will fit the answers in the best way possible for the space on the page. Here are some examples of each type: Remark Test Grading Cloud Question Types Take these new features for a ride the next time you design a test in Remark Test Grading Cloud. We hope you enjoy this new feature and look forward to adding more of your suggested features in future versions.

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.
