Data Export

We can export your exam data in a variety of data formats. Two common formats are:

Tab-Delimited file

When you request OMR exam processing, you will automatically receive an unsorted tab-delimited file of the 101 - Student Statistics Report.

A tab-delimited file is a text format file that uses tab characters as separators between fields. You can use this file with a spreadsheet application for further post-processing like data sorting or for exporting to a gradebook.

Example of a Tab-Delimited File

The columns used in the tab-delimited file will be be Student Name, Student Number, Grade Scale, Percentage Scored, and Total Score)

Raw-Data file

You can also request a raw-data file. The raw-data file of the scanned student responses is a comma separated file that contains the Student Name, Student Number, and NSID, along with their responses as captured on the OMR form.

This file will not have been altered by any post-processing procedures and is available to those who choose to perform their own scoring and grading of an exam.
