    Expanding the use of OMR in MCQ data capture

    Degree programmes are often well suited to the use of Multiple Choice Question (MCQ) assessments, and in the University of Bristol a number of departments have used MCQ assessments at various points during their programmes. The processing of these assessments were traditionally carried out by the departments themselves, either by hand or by using a standard scanner together with associated software. These approaches were prone to error and very time-consuming for the staff involved.

    The specific course design used in legal training has always suited the use of Multiple Choice Question (MCQ) assessments, but with the introduction of the Bar Vocational course many more MCQ assessments needed to be processed. Initially, this was done manually as they had always been, but it soon became apparent how time-consuming the process had become.
