For many teachers, icebreakers can be seen as a necessary evil. Not only are they a straightforward way to learn more about the students that you’ll be teaching over the next year, they’re also useful for creating a sense of cohesion among the students themselves. 


However, it can become challenging to find activities that are engaging and don’t have your students rolling their eyes. You also need to make sure that you aren’t asking students to reveal too much information about themselves, which can be challenging and stressful for those with anxiety.

We frequently hear stories from clients who are struggling to introduce change in their schools. The simple act of requiring professors to use differently coloured answer sheets for multiple choice exams has been known to reduce seasoned professionals to tears. 

Multiple-choice examinations are a popular assessment tool among instructors and schools. Thanks to modern scanning technology, they are easy to grade and often the only way to evaluate larger classroom sizes at the college and university levels. When properly prepared, they are also an efficient way to test multiple learning objectives in one sitting. When badly written, multiple choice tests can lead to underwhelming test scores and leave even the brightest students frustrated.

Optical Mark Recognition, often abbreviated as OMR, is an electronic method of collecting data from bubble multiple choice forms such as assessments and surveys by scanning paper to detect the presence or absence of a mark in a predetermined position. One of the most familiar applications of this technology is the use of bubble answer sheets in multiple choice question examinations common to high school and college classrooms.
