SAVE PROCESSING TIME
Capture images and OMR data in a single pass through the scanner. You can gather multiple choice, objective test, or survey responses at the same time you capture images of short answers to constructed response items on tests or comments on survey forms.
TIE IMAGES TO DATA RECORDS
Images can be tied to an OMR data record, archived, and retrieved later for review or evaluation. Route essays, survey comments, and other images to reviewers for final evaluations.
DESIGN FORMS FOR EFFICIENCY
Because the scanner reads both handprint and machine printed characters, you can design data collection forms to be more aesthetically pleasing and make better use of space. End users will also thank you for not requiring them to fill in large bubble grids for name, address, ID numbers, and the like.
PRE-PRINT ENCODED DATA
Lessen the amount of data you require from form users by pre-printing encoded data. You can also verify and cross-reference data to external databases by reading pre-printed bar codes, mark sense, and binary coded numbers.
MEET ACCURACY STANDARDS
The following technologies help you meet accuracy standards with the least amount of effort on your part.
- Picture Perfect™ – ensures that hand- and machine-print characters are quickly and accurately interpreted by minimizing the effects of mechanical distortions.
- Image Quality Sentry™ – minimizes the accumulation of inferior quality images.
These features operate as each sheet is scanned. They are transparent to the user and are designed to improve the accuracy of data without slowing the scanning process. Further, these features minimize the amount of post-processing required; thereby, optimizing the total production.
IMAGE FORMATS MEET INDUSTRY STANDARDS
Included with every i NSIGHT™ system is ScanTools® Plus scanning software for developing forms scanning applications. In addition, the system outputs industry-standard image formats which are fully compatible with most archival/retrieval systems.
ScanTools Plus software verifies booklet identification and sheet sequence as each sheet passes through the scanner–another fail-safe to help ensure that the highest quality data is captured.
