Scantron Corporation is an American company based in Eagan, Minnesota, that supports test technology ranging from online systems to paper form options. They are best known for their machine-readable paper forms on which students mark answers to academic multiple-choice test questions and the optical mark recognition (OMR) and imaging scanners that read them. To analyze those answers, the machines use OMR- and image-based data collection software.
In addition to its forms and scanners, Scantron provides a variety of web- and desktop-based assessment software, including the Codie Award Finalists Achievement Series® (fixed-form assessment content management and delivery software) and Performance Series® (computer-adaptive diagnostic assessment).
Scantron Analytics and Scantron Assessment Analytics provide true big-data analytics tools for educational customers. These tools provide a powerful analytics engine, powered by QlikView®, that eliminates the need for a data warehouse.
Scantron also provides one of the top course evaluation solutions, Class Climate®, that helps colleges, universities, and corporations request and process feedback on classes, events, and other surveys using online forms, paper forms, or a combination of both.
Scantron is a division of M&F Worldwide.
