How to Improve Data Collection for Research and Assessment

Magenta sample form

Magenta Suite includes the Magenta Forms Designer, the Data Merge option for printing varaible data on forms, and Remark Classic OMR for scanning, reporting and exporting. These programs are integrated into the Magenta Suite and provide a complete scanning software package for OMR scanners from companies such as Sekonic and Scantron. OMRs have been used for decades as the fastest, cheapest, most accurate means for companies and institutions to input data into computer systems. To design, print and scan forms with image scanners, you can use our Concord Suite.

The Magenta Forms Designer has the EZ Form Design Wizard that will generate a form for you in minutes rather than days. EZ Form is so easy to use, you will think Magenta is doing the work for you because it is. You have never used a forms design tool as easy to use as this one. With a few clicks and some cutting and pasting from a word processor, you have an OMR scannable form. You can also modify your forms easily and as often as needed.

The Magenta Suite for use with OMR scanners gives you the following capabilities:

  • Create scan forms for data collection utilizing Sekonic or Scantron scanners
  • Print forms using most printers and customize forms while they are being printed with information from a data file (Data Merge feature)
  • Scan the forms using an OMR scanner
  • Edit the scanned data
  • Export the data to other software like Excel, Access and SPSS
  • Score Tests or Analyze Surveys (Quick & Easy or Customized Analysis)
  • Produce survey and test scoring reports

In education, Magenta helps districts to develop new survey forms, such as:
  • parent surveys in the languages of their communities
  • performance assessments that capture teacher observations and evaluations
  • traditional OMR scantron forms for course evaluations, grade reporting and attendance sheets.
In other industries, Magenta makes it possible to create bubble forms to track inventory, sales, patient encounters, research and customer/employee satisfaction using high speed data entry.
