Optical scanning can simplify data collection from tests, surveys, and other types of observation. Respondents can record information directly on forms compatible with Scantron scanners, or the researcher can transfer hand-written data to machine-readable forms. In either case, the data can be scanned and stored in an electronic format suitable for analysis via Excel, SPSS, etc.
Multiple-choice exams completed on “bubble” sheets can be scored by BEST. In addition, the Digitek II scoring program provides an item analysis that can be useful in improving test items.
BEST charges for all scanning except course exams and course evaluations. Depending on the purpose and complexity of the project, there may be a charge for assistance in developing survey forms.
