Upcoming Support Monthly Webinar February 29

Did you know Remark can recognize more than bubbles? This webinar will cover creating properly formatted Code 3 of 9 barcodes for use with barcode regions and creating form design-compliant text to be read using OCR regions. Both of these items are great for capturing non-multiple choice data, such as demographics. Other common uses for each will also be discussed.

This webinar is targeted at beginner Remark Office OMR users. But whether you are a beginner user or a seasoned pro, this webinar is tailored to provide invaluable tips and techniques to leverage surveying effectively.

Remark Test Grading Has a New Update!

Greetings to our Remark-able Community!

We're back with another quick Remark Test Grading update, and this time we're excited to introduce some fantastic features that will enhance your test-building experience. Let's dive right in!

Test Designer Preview Update

Building tests just got even more flexible! With the latest update, you can now toggle the test designer between a paper and online test preview option. This allows you to seamlessly switch between the two modes while constructing your test, giving you a real-time glimpse of how your questions will appear in different formats.

Online Test Preview

Distributing online tests has never been smoother. The "Online Test Preview" feature now displays the test exactly as it will appear to your students, including questions that were excluded from your answer key and multiple versions of the test. This enhancement ensures that you can confidently present your online tests, knowing that students will have a seamless testing experience after we provide you with a clear and accurate representation of what your students will be seeing during testing.

Optimization for Large Tests

We understand the challenges that come with handling large tests, especially those packed with numerous pages and images. In response to your feedback, we've made significant improvements behind the scenes. These changes are designed to reduce the size of large tests, making the application more responsive as you build them. Enjoy a smoother and more efficient test-building process, even when dealing with extensive content.

Improved Bubble Recognition

We know life isn't perfect so we've also enhanced bubble recognition under the covers to help read those real world forms, particularly when it comes to forms filled in with light pencil marks.

When you log into Remark be sure to read the notifications for all of the new enhancements.

Thank you for choosing Remark Test Grading!. Stay tuned for more exciting updates!

Happy testing!


We're committed to continuously improving based on valuable customer feedback. These updates aim to make your experience more user-friendly, responsive, and tailored to your needs. As always, your satisfaction is our priority. If you have a suggestion for a new feature, let us know by clicking the button below!

Upcoming Support Monthly Webinar January 25

Multiple test versions are often used to discourage students from cheating by looking at neighboring students’ answer sheets. There are different types of answer keys – Standard answer keys in which each version has its own answer key, or Advanced answer keys, which use one key but the test versions have the question order rearranged. This webinar will cover both Standard and Advanced answer keys including importing Advanced multiple test versions using a tab-delimited text file. If you want to learn how to work with multiple answer keys, this webinar is for you.

This webinar is targeted at intermediate and advanced Remark Office OMR users. But, whether you’re an intermediate user or a seasoned pro, this webinar is tailored to provide you with invaluable tips and techniques to leverage surveying effectively. Secure your spot today by clicking the link below and take your data analysis skills to new heights!

Remark Test Grading 2.7: Unveiling New Features and Enhancements

Remark Test Grading 2.7

As we step into the new year, the Remark Team is proud to unveil Remark Test Grading version 2.7, with new exciting features and enhancements based on your valuable feedback! We believe this update continues to demonstrate how committed we remain to making the process of grading smoother, more efficient, and tailored to your needs. Let's delve into the latest additions that make Remark Test Grading 2.7 stand out.

Features and Enhancements

  • New Blackboard Gradebook Export: If you are using Blackboard as your LMS, but do not have our Blackboard Connector, we added a new gradebook export for you. The Blackboard Ultra gradebook format can be used to export grades from Remark to Blackboard using Blackboard's "Offline" CSV import. You will need to know the gradebook column number and name, and then Remark will properly format the export file to import directly into the Blackboard gradebook. You can find this option with the Gradebook Export options in Remark Quick Stats. Want to see this feature in action? Click here.
    For simplified interaction with Blackboard, learn more about our Blackboard Connector.
  • Class Grades Export: We have often been asked for and have now implemented the ability to export all test grades for a class. From the My Classes page, or from within a class, you can now select Export Class Grades to download an Excel spreadsheet with grades for all of your students and tests. The file includes both the raw score and a percent score for each test.
  • Student Test Report Updates: We made a few changes to the Student Test Report based upon suggestions from customers:
    • Grade Information Location: You can now customize where you put the grade information that is displayed by default in the top right corner of the report. In the Report Style options you can now choose any of the four corners to display this information.
    • Partial Credit: When using partial credit to grade a question, the correct answers are now displayed as an asterisk so that all of the correct answers do not have to be shown (this was taking up a good amount of unnecessary space).

There is more! For more information about Remark Test Grading version 2.7's new features and fixes, follow this link to our updates page.
