Faculty - Remark: Scanning and Grading with the Answer Key

This article will provide you with written directions and a video tutorial on how to scan and grade student answer sheets with the answer key in the Remark software. It is important that you place the answer sheets in the printer tray in the direction indicated on the answer sheet.

The process has changed slightly from previous years. Before you begin to scan your answer sheets with your answer key you will need to switch the printer scanner from Offline to Online. Please be aware that you no longer need to switch the printer scanner from Offline to Online.

Remark is available on the following designated computers:


Science Center - 280


Health Science Center - Faculty Work Space


Parkhouse - Math Faculty Suite


Note: Do NOT change any of the settings on the printer or the Remark software. The Remark software has been set to the appropriate standards for reading answer sheets.

The scanned tests will load in grid format on your screen in the OMR Data Center. You must make any necessary changes in the OMR Data Center before you create your reports. 

  • Yellow - This usually means the student did not provide an answer and left it blank.
  • Red - This usually means there is an error and is not fixable within the Data Center.
  • Green - You can fix these items. This usually indicates that there were two answers selected. This may be a multiple answer question or the student marked the wrong answer.
