The multiple-choice exam remains a staple for many introductory physics courses. In the past, people have graded these by hand or even flaming needles. Today, one usually grades the exams with a form scanner that utilizes optical mark recognition (OMR). Several companies provide these scanners and particular forms, such as the eponymous “Scantron.” OMR scanners combine hardware and software—a scanner and OMR program—to read and grade student-filled forms.
