Generate and Scan Your Own Bubble Answer Sheets

It’s easy to use a bubble answer sheet generator to create custom bubble sheet templates.

The bubble sheet generator has the tools to quickly add the bubble in answer checkboxes as well as the tools to add any text or other elements that need to be on your custom bubble sheet page.

We have found this way of designing Bubble answer sheet templates so much easier than creating a bubble answer sheet template in Microsoft word, using special fonts, and the template is immediately recognised by the bubble sheet reader software.

Bubble Answer Sheet

Add how ever many question numbers you need to the page and then add the correct number of checkbox answer bubbles for each question.

You can also add a checkbox bubble grid for capturing student ID numbers or an option to print respondent’s names on the form pages.

When the answer sheet is being created in the software editor, it is already being detected by the software. This lets you know your bubble answer sheet design will be detected by the software later on when the returned answer sheets are being automatically graded by the software.

How to Print OMR Bubble Answer Sheets

OMR Bubble Answer sheets should always be printed using a laser printer. Laser printers can create a crisply printed bubble sheet, which is not always the case for bubble jet printers because the bubble jet ink can smudge, causing imperfections in the detection of the filled in checkbox bubbles or the barcodes when the pages are being read.

How to Grade Bubble Answer Sheets with Computer Software

The first step to having your bubble answer sheets read automatically is to scan the bubble sheets using any recent model scanner, then upload the scanned images saved on your computer, into the Bubble Sheet Reader Software. You will find the pages are read so quickly, you will have all the bubble answer sheets graded within a few minutes, without having to do anything else. Free Trial Bubble Answer Sheet Grading

Bubble Sheet software is computer technology that can locate where the checkbox bubbles appear on the page. It then detects marks made in the checkboxes of the scanned pages. Creating the bubble answer sheets with Optical Mark Recognition that can automatically recognise them, saves the time taken with having to train a Microsoft word bubble answer template to be recognised by the OMR software. I have always found this process to be a real chore.
