General Data Collection

The optical mark readers may be used for data entry from an unlimited variety of customized forms, e.g., census surveys, election ballots, program/conference evaluations.

  1. Forms may be printed locally with a fair amount of flexibility in formats (layouts). These forms are restricted to 8.5 by 11 sheets and are normally printed in red ink. Requests for other colors must not be done without specific arrangements with This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. . This partial-customization option is suggested for situations involving the need for a special single-sheet form (possibly duplex) in quantities of 2,000 to as many as 20,000 sheets. Development of the master copy and the scanning program will take from 3 to 6 hours (at $60 per hour) depending on the specific requirements. 2013 prices for the actual printing are as follows:


    Per 1000

    printed on one side


    printed on two sides


  2. Totally customized forms allowing variations in form size and colors as well as other special needs are accommodated by working with an outside vendor who specializes in producing OMR forms.  This option is particularly appropriate for multi-page forms as well as for forms where larger quantities are required.
  3. Small quantities (100's rather than 1000's) of forms may be generated with a relaxation of the above constraints. Inquiries about this option should be addressed to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. .
