Background

  • Closure of print shop in FY20 combined with cost of replacing aging Scantron equipment led to an assessment of UToledo’s scanning vendor and process
  • Scantron committee formed fall 2019 – met regularly until UToledo went remote in spring 2020
  • Committee’s recommendation was to switch from Scantron to Remark Test Grading subject to the results from a pilot
  • Pilot took place spring 2021
  • Provost decided to move forward with Remark Test Grading
