As per your requirement you may collect filled OMR bubbles or ticked rectangular boxes or crossed squares. You may also collect data as cropped image form or even hand written text (in caps or numbers only) read by Yomark’s intelligent OCR module. 1.1.3. Highest degree accuracy (ZET–zero error tolerance mechanism) Just read your files through YOMARK and prepare reports. Forget about errors in the reports. YOMARK ensures 99.99% accuracy on sample of ten thousand sheets chosen randomly and 100% accuracy on 1lac uniform sheets. (Test case was conducted on…… 1.1.4. Type free OMR sheet compatibility Design yourself (in paint brush, Corel draw, photo shop or even in ms word!) an OMR sheet on the basis of just one line guideline and take print outs on simple A4 pages - your OMR sheets are ready! And YOMARK is ready to evaluate! Now carry on taking responses on these sheets i.e. No specific paper type or No specific color or die or No specific printing is required. 1.1.5. Easy to use Well Organized, uncluttered, consistent, and easy to use screen layout of YOMARK gives you a pleasurable experience when you work on it. YOMARK ensures that all the international norms and standards have been followed while developing it hence even icons, along with layout and ways to use the software are virtually close to the way you think and is consistent throughout the software. A very less requirement of concentration and precision of users of YOMARK make it possible that a beginner can learn it in just half an hour.
  2. 2. 1.1.6. Extra ordinary and innovative reports Get reports in just a single click! The software provides you the never before options to create or generate reports as per your requirements. It not only contains lots of default patterns of use full reports but also provides you the flexibility to create your own indices and parameters to customize yourself text, tabular and graphical reports of your requirements. Various innovative meters like Accuracy meter, Status o’ meter, Speed o’ meter, Latent o’ meter etc. are never before available tools for you to help you analyze the progress, performance and psyche of your respondents. 1.1.7. Support to any type of marking / evaluation pattern The software provides various options to set marking scheme for the test papers to be evaluated. Single correct, multiple correct, negative marking, partial marking, weighted marking; match the column (matrix type) with row or item based marking are few to mention. In fact marking scheme can be set for each question or each option of a question independently.1.2. Features 1.2.1. Create Your Own Template: This Feature enables its users create their own OMR template that is template for the OMR Sheets to be read. Actually user designs their OMR sheets as per their requirement and gets it printed and then a blank OMR sheet is scanned and imported in this module of the software then on the basis of this scanned sheet user creates a template. Creating template means to indicate on the OMR sheet, the position and the location of various types of fields with their character such as -Name, Roll No., Questions, Question type, Location or class code and their equivalent response etc. Whenever there is a change in your OMR sheet, you need not run to us /supplier each time you make changes in you OMR Sheet. Creation of an OMR template takes hardly ten minute of an average DTP operator. 1.2.2. Multiple Pages Processing: If your OMR form has more than 1 page then you need not worry about processing of this form because Yomark allows process OMR forms with multiple pages simultaneously in one go and gives complete information in one table. Even information on one page can be clubbed with that of on the other pages and combined result or report can be obtained. 1.2.3. Get Images:
  3. 3. This feature allows you get different types of images for different purpose. This helpsget student photograph, student signature as image. There are many more importantthings which cannot be treated because of the limitation of size of OMR sheet andspecial characters using OMR technology or very cumbersome for respondents to fill somany bubbles such as address or e-mail id etc. Such type of information can be taken asimage and these Images can be used for future references as they can be retrieved inexcel in separate columns.1.2.4. Read/ Write Barcode:You may get printed the bar codes on your OMR sheets. Yomark will read these bar codes foryou and provide the corresponding encoded data. This is very a useful tool to locate misplacedOMR sheet or to point out erroneous or incomplete OMR sheets and rectify the errors. It canalso create bar codes for the information you want to encode.1.2.5. Hand written text and OCR:There are lots of important information which cannot be collected as filled bubbles orticked/crossed boxes because of their type or limitation of paper size of OMR sheet. Youmay collect data as hand written text (in caps or numbers only) and get it read by Yomark’sintelligent OCR module. Yomark reads these data for you and converts into typed editable text.1.2.6. Dictionary Options:This feature provides the facility to encode information into numbers or alphabets. For exampleif user wants to collect data of the locations of their respondents, user can ask to fill the predefined codes only and store the corresponding actual location as dictionary in this module theresult or report will automatically contain the corresponding locations of the respondents. Thiscan be done for any type of information such as codes against collages, university, states,subjects, etc.1.2.7. Link Additional Information to the Results/Reports: This is a very power full feature of the software. When user is collecting data of its regularrespondents (for example for a school or coaching institutes it may be its regular students) he/she just need to assign a unique code (in case of students it may be roll no.) to eachrespondent. Now using this feature add any number of information against this unique codesuch as name, phone no., e mail Id etc. The result of the responses will contain all theseinformation. This feature is very useful if user don’t want to use or purchase any data base asthis feature does not require any data base to store information.1.2.8. Accuracy watch:This is a unique feature of Yomark and makes it miles ahead of its competitors. While readingresponses user can be assured of file being read correctly or not. Just by a click user can view
  4. 4. the actual response of any sheet or any region of the OMR sheet and can match with theresponse read by the software. This is why Yomark is considered as highest accurate OMRresponse reader. While reading files the software not only informs you about incorrectlybubbled or incorrectly scanned files but also allows you to make the corrections then and thereonly. For example if while scanning a file is rotated through 90 or 180 degrees it informs andwarns about this erroneous file and allows you to rotate the file in the desired direction!1.2.9. Innovative marking / evaluation schemes:The soft ware handles almost all type of conventional and in use practices of marking patternsused for conventional MCQ tests and different type of psychometric tests. Some of thereferences are- MCQ with multiple correct and partial marking, negative marking, positivemarking, marking of linked questions that is marks or evaluation of one question depending onthe response of the previous question, matrix type or match the table type question in such typeof question marks can be set on row basis or even on the basis of each cell. Some time anerroneous question paper may contain an MCQ for which only one option is set for answer butthe question contains more than one correct or neither correct options, the software give youfreedom to evaluate such questions on the basis of either/or/neither/ all that is you can chooseany of the response type to evaluate such questions. It is worth mentioning that Yomark helpsyou set the marking scheme for complete question paper as well as individually for each questionand even each option of an MCQ independently.1.2.10. Generate Reports as per demand:The software provides you a never before option of generating results or creating reports as peryour requirement. There is option for result or report pattern where you can choose fields youwant in the report / results or even you can club the various fields under one header like underthe header - Personal Info, you can club the columns containing name, date of birth, Phone No.,Gender etc. This feature makes you tension free at least for publishing results and reports as itdoes not require to export the responses in excel and then prepare results and reports. Thesoftware itself gives you facility1.2.11. Create or design your own graphical report:The software provides you an option of designing graphical reports as per your requirement.You may feel thrilled while working on this module of Yomark. Even if a single parameter ischanged conclusions of analysis of responses may changes drastically. Here using this featureyou can have the most realistic and relevant analysis with graphical representation and that toowith different point of view, such as Student’s point of view, Faculty’s point of view, Directorspoint of view, parent’s point of view, Institute’s point of view etc. Various innovative meters likeAccuracy meter, Status o’ meter, Speed o’ meter, Latent o’ meter etc. are never before availabletools for you to help you analyze the progress, performance and psyche of your respondents.
  5. 5. 1.2.12. Generate Admit card / Identity card: The creation of admit card or identity card for any institution is essential but a very tedious task as there are too many variable information for each card and we require to put them together after collecting from various places or enter manually. Now you just need to get OMR sheets filled by your students or employees with photograph and signature on it and Yomark will generate the admit/identity card for you with options to decide the places for photo or signature or any other information to be or not to be there. In fact the design and layout of admit/identity card can be customized in just few clicks. You can also create a bar code on admit/identity card encoding any unique information of student or employee in it. This can be used to record study material distribution or any kind of interaction or attendance using bar code guns.1.3. FAQ 1.3.1. Is it very costly to adopt OMR solution for evaluation or processing of data collected on OMR sheets? NO! At the time of implementation it seems to be costly i.e. Natural thinking for converting any Manual process to Automated. Complete OMR solution can be implemented by spending merely 30 thousand (INR) and more than one billion results/reports can be generated in a year. Manual work as compared to omr
  6. 6. solution is not only inefficient but also much costlier than the cost of implementation of omr solution.1.3.2. Is it required a very good software skill to use OMR software? NO! Any computer savvy who can operate his email account can easily operate Yomark (OMR software) with little assistance. It takes just half an hour to train a beginner on Yomark.1.3.3. Do we require any special type of paper for OMR sheets No! Any type of paper can be used for OMR sheets. In fact you can use your copier pages which you use normally for getting print outs.1.3.4. What is the size (dimension) of an OMR sheet? Generally A4 size is used for OMR sheet, but our software is not dependent on the size of sheet. You get designed omr sheet as per your requirement or compatibility with your scanner and either get it offset printed or take print outs hence the size of omr sheet depends on the compatibility of your printer or scanner or your decision of sheet-size if you out source printing.1.3.5. Do we require any special type of printing for OMR sheets?
  7. 7. NO! But while printing precaution should be taken so that the uniformity of all the omr sheets are maintained i.e. OMR region, Image, bar code should be uniform and similar on each sheet for same lot. For better result we advise either take print out from an ADF printer or get printed by an offset machine but not by screen printing.1.3.6. As we have seen the OMR sheets are generally in a pinkish red color. Do we require any special type of color for printing OMR sheets? NO! It can be of any color, but it is advised that the respondents should fill the omr sheet with different color than the sheet color. Actually for better and accurate result you are advised to use drop color facility where you can drop the printed color and only respondent’s marks (optical marks!) remains to be read. Hence you can get your omr sheet printed in any color of your choice or company policy!1.3.7. What is the difference between OMR scanner and OMR software? 1) Omr scanner is 10 to 20 times costlier than Omr software. 2) Omr scanners generate report in fix format we can’t customize it according to our needs. Even most of the omr scanners provide raw data which further needs to be analyzed by either manually or by further customized software 3) Omr software like Yomark is designed as per the end user requirements and hence able to provide results and reports as user wishes to generate. Naturally
  8. 8. omr scanners being more or less hard ware devices are less scalable then the omr software like Yomark! 4) omr scanners perform the process of scanning and reading simultaneously hence produce results a bit faster than the omr software as omr software requires scanned files.1.3.8. Can we use back to back printed OMR sheet? Or how many maximum pages an OMR sheet can contain? YES! We can use back to back OMR sheet. OMR sheet can contain maximum two pages.1.3.9. What is the normal speed of the OMR software? It depends on template size, Scanned file size, Number of region on template & on system configuration.
