C. Examples, Cheat sheets and Videos

A cheat sheet for using the Bubble sheet generator that will work with the Bubble Grader software that is on our Minolta Printers aka MFP’s (MinoltaCl114 and MinoltaEops)

An example of some poorly marked bubble grader test pages to demonstrate what the software will do with poorly pen marked test sheets. Some have double marks, some have just X’s etc. I tried to run the gauntlet of things a test taker might do to see what the bubble grader software would do.

The report from the paper sheets that were scanned in to create the answered test pages in the ScannedSheets.pdf file above.
