Effortless scanned answer-sheet processing for educators

Feature highlights

Works with most image files Most standard image file formats are supported. Most document workcenters and scanners can easily save scanned pages to separate files.
  • Supported formats: BMP, GIF, JPEG, PNG, TIFF (single image per file)
  • Recommended resolution: 200 DPI
Automatic paper registration For image registration, EasyGrader relies on four dark square marks, which must lie on a rectangular grid. These marks are used to automatically compensate for any shifts and/or rotation on each scanned image, thereby increasing the reading accuracy.
  • Page: size A4 or US letter, in portrait orientation
  • Registration mark: recommended size 3mm, centered in a 15x15mm blank area
Index number support Index numbers are used to link each answer sheet to a student, and to permit collation of results from multi-page answer sheets.
Flexible scoring schemes By organizing questions into sections, different Answer schemes can be catered for. Schemes such as A,B,C,D and T,F can be used. In each section, answers have a distinct score for correct, blank or incorrect answer. Negative marking is supported.
Multiple answer handling In the Answer Key, multiple answers can be specified when there is more than one right answer. Conversely, when grading answer sheets, a multiple answer is scored as a blank answer.
Exception review Blank, dubious and multiple marks are highlighted in different colours for manual review. As each result row is reviewed, the corresponding image is displayed with a colour-coded overlay for easy inspection.
High speed processing Entry-level editions (mini/maxi) are speed-limited, but will still get the job done in 5 minutes or less. Unlimited editions use all available processor cores to maximise performance.
  • Mini-edition: Limited to 10 sheets/minute and 50 result rows per project
  • Maxi-edition: Limited to 100 sheets/minute and 500 result rows per project
  • Unlimited-edition: 1000 sheets/minute on Core2 Duo (typical)
