How OMR based answer sheet checking is different from manual checking?

OMR technology has greatly evolved over the years. There was a time when big OMR machines used to be used to print and scan the OMR sheets and designing of sheets used to be done by dedicated experts in their own warehouses. Well now the scenario has significantly changed. When thinking of conducting OMR based test, all that one needs to do is to purchase OMR software which can easily be integrated with the computer. The convenience that comes with OMR software has made it so famous amongst various educational industries and corporate sectors for creating and evaluating tests, assessments, admission forms, checklists, feedback forms, inventory lists, Olympiads and surveys. Many of us are still not aware of how OMR sheet checker is capable of evaluating OMR based answers sheets and how it is different from the manual sheet checking process. When discussing about the differences between manual and automate checking we must weigh the advantages that comes with the use of technology. Below we have mentioned some notable differences between the two that will definitely help you out. - Manual checking is done by humans and under stress humans can make errors that can cause inaccuracy at the end of the result generation. Manual assessment is still feasible if the questions have got only one single correct answer with positive marking. But when it comes to checking questions with two or more possible answer options and negative marking humans can get confused which will eventually lead to error. So it is right to conclude that OMR sheet checker guarantees complete accuracy over manual checking. - The answer key that is created for the test has the possibility of having some error in the answer. Maybe there can be a repetition or fault in the answer key that can disrupt the whole process. With manual checking you won’t be able to know where the fault is because of which you will have to repeat the entire checking process.
