  • Students can use pen or pencil; undesired answers can be crossed out or erased.
  • Easy to understand cover sheet/order form and instructor report.
  • The output of the report makes it easier for instructors to improve the effectiveness and fairness of their tests.
  • Bubble sheets are scanned within department or through a centralized scanning process within University Systems.
