The OMR workstation is located in the CTL main office in ADM 103 and is available during our hours of operation from 8:30 am to 4:30 pm. This is a self-serve workstation for instructors and TAs to use independently; an instruction manual is available at the station. Time can be reserved in advance by clicking here and logging in using your CWL ID.
The OMR can also be used to scan research surveys. Survey templates are created using Remark Office software. Once the surveys are scanned, Remark software creates survey reports or the data can be exported to Microsoft Excel or SPSS software for further data analysis and reporting. The Centre for Teaching and Learning can provide training on creating custom templates for research purposes.
