How to Fill in OMR Response Forms

To correctly fill in an OMR response form:

  • Use an HB pencil only
    (Other pens and markers have been known to scan incorrectly)
  • Fill in the circles or “bubbles” completely.
  • If you need to erase a response, you must erase it well, leaving zero to minimal trace of your previous response.
  • Students must fill the NSID field “bubbles” and write their NSIDs on the form.

If students enter their NSIDs incorrectly or repond with multiple answers to a question, you will be notified and will receive an “Exception Report” when you receive the processed forms.
