Scantron makes a version of their Remark software that lets you create Scantron forms, print them on 8.5x11 paper and then scan the filled out forms using a regular scanner or copier (I think they might need to be able to generate .tif files instead of .pdf).

We are using this to phase out our aging Scantron machine.  I wasn't involved in the purchasing, but i think it's around $1,000 to purchase and then $250 a year for software maintenance.

Hi all,

Last year, we had to move a midterm exam because AWS went down and took down many of our online services (I am sure that many of you experienced issues, too).  We want to make sure that we are prepared should this happen again.  Bluebooks are easy, but we use a lot of multiple choice questions in our tests, too.  We looked at scantron machines, but they are cost prohibitive since we would only want this as a backup system.

What do you use for scantron/bubble sheet grading?
