OMR ends stat reports for OpScan survey service on July 2

Beginning this summer session II (July 2, 2009), OIT-Optical Mark Reading (OMR) Services will no longer provide data analysis reports as part of its OpScan Surveys or Evaluations services. OIT will continue to scan Scantron (“bubble sheet”) forms for surveys and evaluations, but will only be able to provide the raw data for these jobs. The OpScan Exam/Quiz Scoring service will not be impacted by these changes. OIT will continue to provide data analysis for exams and quizzes that use the Scantron forms. OIT is discontinuing the data analysis for surveys and evaluations at this time because the software and hardware that produce these reports are now obsolete. Due to the availability of online surveys and other factors, surveys now make up less than 1 percent of the work OMR Services performs. Given current budget constraints, OIT cannot justify the purchases necessary to continue to provide statistical reports for surveys and evaluations. OIT regrets any inconvenience this change in service may cause. If you have questions or concerns, please contact OMR Services at 515-5472.
