OMR OCR ICR Modules and Features

The Addmen OMR Software Solutions are totally modular.

We have kept the solution modular because if a regular user has simple requirements, then we do not want to load the user with extra price and extra learning because of extra features, which are not relevant for him. So the price of the solution is based on the modules you select.

Modules for MCQ Test Scoring

A0- OMR Test Sheet Reader (Base Component)

A0 is used as basic reader in case of OMR Answer Sheet Checker process, where certain types of OMR blocks like Question, Rollno and Test ID have to be treated differently for further processing. If other OMR fields like Name and other information are also to be read from the OMR Sheet, then B0 must be added.


A1- MCQ Test Scoring with Basic Reporting


A2- MCQ Test Scoring with Advanced Reporting (includes A1)

Extended reporting interface for detailed reports like Question Paper Analysis, Student Assessment Report (each test), Student Progress Graphs (multiple tests), Batch Comparison Graphs and Charts etc.


A3- Feedback and Survey Analysis


A4- Online Score Board (Result on Website)

Interface is added to website where Student login to see: Score Chart (all tests), Advanced Student Assessment Report (each test), Student Progress Graphs (multiple tests). Cloud or local server with IIS and SQL is required to host the module.


A5- Olympiad Ranking and Multi-tier Report Generation (A2 is required)

Olympiad/Scholarship Type MCQ Test Scoring require multilevel ranking as per class, institution, city, state, country etc. So they need more detailed planning of Roll nos and report generation features beyond regular OMR result processing.


A6- SAT/ACT/PSAT Solution (includes A1+A2+A4)

SAT or other examinations held outside India have a different pattern than the regular MCQ based tests. These Test patterns involve more detailed definition and reporting, so they need extended result processing Features. In case of the SAT solution, the regular functionality of OMR Answer Sheet Checker remains intact while addon Features are activated, which according to these SAT like test pattern enables the software to accept scaled scores and club multi-part tests taken on multiple sheets into one and prepare reports accordingly.
