The ITS Client Service group, within Information Technology Services, provides an MCQ Exam Scanning service using an Optical Mark Reader (OMR).

We can scan and analyse True/False and multiple choice exams for your organisational unit.

Please see the video below, which details how to correctly complete a multiple choice exam paper. Lecturers are encouraged to show his video to students as part of the examination process.

General Information

Before submitting exams for scanning, please read the MCQ Exam Scanning Checklist, guidelines on filling out Answer Sheets and the information explaining Exam Analysis and Reports.

Make sure you have the Multiple Choice Marking Request [pdf file] correctly completed and ready to submit with your exam and exam answer sheet. If you prefer to enter the data within this form, before printing, then you may wish to download and save the word [.doc] version.
