PRINT your test answer sheets by whatever method (inkjet, laser, offset printing) on whatever paper you choose. The test sheet will fit on standard full size letter (8-1/2 x 11 inch) or A4 (210 x 297mm) size paper with a minimum of 100 questions per page (total of 300 questions supported) and from 4 to 9 digit student ID number spaces at the top. Perfect alignment of the Printable Answer Sheet image on the sheet is not critical since black squares at the top of the form and marks on both sides of the page are used for alignment by the software.

 

When you download the software, there is at the bottom of the first screen a button that enables you to easily print the required test sheets with the proper number of digits at the top for the student ID number.

 

Below are examples of the 9 digit ID form with 100 questions in both letter size and European A4 size paper formats:

SCAN your test sheets. Virtually all scanners can create Black & White Only, 200 dpi, TIFF images of the test sheets, which can then be quickly scored. PrintScanScore also provides a scanning program that works very well with scanners that are directly attached to the PC using a USB cable, which is the regular method.

 

Many organizations today have a printer that has a copy machine on top of the printer which is actually a scanner that can make .PDF and .TIFF images of the pages.  In this case you already have a great scanner to use with PrintScanScore.  If the scanner is on the network, you can send to yourself the scanned test sheet pages.

 

One sheet will have all the correct answers. You can then create a folder with all the student sheets, each as a separate page and PrintScanScore will automatically read and score each of these sheets.  (Note: You must change the default settings of your printer/scanner so it does not put the student sheets as multiple pages in just a single TIFF file. Each student test sheet MUST be a separate TIFF file.)

SCORE your tests with the included Test Wizard module which is the scoring program that has been developed over the past 10 years for ZIP-scanís use with its original custom half-sheet OMR scanner.  It scores the images of the test sheets and generates an analytical report, a summary report, and individual student reports. The ability to include sub-grouping of questions in the reports is a special feature of the Test Wizard module. No changes have been made to the Test Wizard and it functions the same as the original solution.  There are more details under the Scoring tab of this web site.

 

The QUICK USER'S GUIDE makes it easy to score your first practice test sheets.  Call 888-947-7226 if you have ANY questons.

Frequently Asked Questions

 

Q:  Do I need to purchase a scanner?

A:   Many organizations have a modern printer that has a copier on top that they use to make PDF images of pages.  This printer/copier frequently has the ability to email the images of the pages scanned to the userís email address on the network as an attachment.  This is a great feature.  You simply need to program into the front panel the option to have these pages scanned as TIFF images in Black & White Only at 200 dpi.  Then you send an email with the correct answer sheet TIFF image to yourself.  For the student test sheets, you must be certain that each sheet is a separate individual TIFF image.  PrintScanScore will not work if the test sheets are simply listed as multiple pages in one TIFF file.  Each sheet must be a separate TIFF file in one folder.  Your device has this feature, but you may need help in selecting this option.

 

 

Q:  Can I truly use any scanner with PrintScanScore?

A:   YES.  All scanners will create TIFF images of the test sheets in a standard Black & White, 200dpi, format.  The TIFF format is a standard for all scanners.  PrintScanScore also provides a scanning utility program what can be used if your scanner is directly attached by USB cable to the PC that has the PrintScanScore program installed.  The attached scanner must support the TWAIN protocol which is normal for about 90% of all scanners.

 

Q:  Can each test sheet be used multiple times for many small tests to save costs?

A:  YES.  Each test sheet has at least 100 questions and the Test Wizard scoring module has a "sub grouping of questions" feature.  Use this feature to report the results for only a small group of questions.  Simply give back the same test sheets to the same students multiple times to take many small tests using different groups of questions.  Then program the software to only report the results for that specific group of questions and suppress the overall report from being generated.

 

 

Q:  Can I scan test forms at separate sites and send the TIFF images to a central location to score the images with PrintScanScore?

A:  YES.  This strategy will work fine.  If you have remote sites that need to print test forms and scan test forms, have them download the PrintScanScore Demo program and use the option on the bottom the first screen to print and scan the test forms and then email the images to the location with the active license.

 


Even when using the Demo Program, please call for assistance.  There is no charge for telephone support. The telephone number is:  888-947-7226  (888-ZIP-SCAN)
