"Optical Mark Recognition (also called Optical Mark Reading and OMR) is the process of capturing human-marked data from document forms such as surveys and tests."

We have developed an OMR technology, which facilitates the automatization of the assessment of multiple choice tests. The OMR software has been integrated into a test system, which makes it possible to conduct a complete test-based examination.
Tests can be generated with the test system and what is important from an OMR point of view the A4 test sheets
- are to be sent to the place of the exam after being printed and then
- after the exam is over, they are scanned and
- through a safe contact, via the Internet, they are sent to the exam centre, where
- the tests are assessed with the help of our software.
A technologically more difficult part of the assessment is the grid and finding the marks within the grid. The software module developed by us offers a solution to this problem. It enables finding grids and the answers marked by the examinees within the grid. After finding the answers, the data processing software adds up the total points and gives a mark. The above mentioned application is a good example of our potential that our company can combine both competences, i. e. the development of data processing softwares with solutions provided by artificial intelligence.
The software module developed by us is general, completely separated from the data processing part of the system, therefore it can be applied in any kind of project where OMRtechnology is needed.
