Optical Mark Reader Service

OCIO manages an OMR (optical mark reader) room to provide OMR service to the staff members. The service is used for processing examinations, programme evaluations as well as general purpose surveys which use the University's standard multiple choice answer sheets for marking answers.

The OMR room is located in D2-LP-06, which has equipped with a Scantron iNSIGHT 4ES high speed optical mark reader. To use the OMR service, users are required to book the room through iBooking in advance. The University has standard multiple choice answer sheets for examination and survey use.
