As schools comply with No Child Left Behind, the use of optical mark recognition (OMR) or "bubble sheet" test forms has increased significantly. Schools must purchase expensive preprinted testing forms, store and distribute them, then ship them to a centralized location for scanning and scoring after the test is administered. The result: added supplies and processing costs plus critical delays in reporting and evaluating test scores. In addition, acquiring and supporting a single-task OMR device is a luxury most schools can no longer afford. Easy isn't the word that comes to mind.

Lexmark provides teachers and administrators with the ability to quickly gather student exam results, create reports and analyze data, all from one location, in a fraction of the time. Now that's easy!
