Remark Upgrade

Effective Date:  August 15, 2018

On August 15, between 3:00 and 5:00 pm, the four academic Remark stations will be upgraded to Remark Office OMR 10.  This upgrade brings a fresh new look to better match modern Windows applications.  The navigation will remain the same, although some features have been renamed to more clearly describe their functionality.

 New Key Benefits and Features

  • More robust partial credit allows any combination of answer choices and point values.
  • AND/OR responses are available for questions with more than one correct response.
  • Exporting to Excel is now possible when using multiple test versions.
  • All reports are now available when using multiple test versions.
  • The Student Grade Report can be split into individual student files and emailed to individual recipients for easy distribution.
  • The Student Statistics Report has been updated to be more user-friendly in the order in which items are displayed.
