Dr. James Campbell is a professor in the Department of Administrative and Instructional Leadership at St. John’s University. His department is responsible for training the superintendents and principals for the present and future. They replaced a traditional scanning system that was error prone with Remark Office OMR and Remark Web Survey to survey children, parents and the adult community in the US and nine countries. For foreign language surveys, they provide the form with the bubbles on it so that the survey administrator can fill in the foreign text. His valuable research has enabled him to author many books and articles, particularly for parents.
Dr. Campbell says he likes that the software “gives him control over the forms he can use, saving money on professional printers and forms.” One way they use this flexibility is to add cartoons to the forms that are geared toward children, which makes the forms more interesting. One of Dr. Campbell’s largest projects was a test for 1000 children that allowed them to garner achievement data and then perform factor analysis. While Dr. Campbell says that, “scanning is a big improvement, Remark Web Survey is a dream.” Being able to collect data so quickly and easily over the Internet is a huge upgrade. We often see Dr. Campbell at tradeshows providing us with suggestions or telling someone else about the potential of the Remark solution. Thank you, Dr. Campbell, for providing feedback from the field and being one of our strongest advocates.
