    OMR is been abbreviated for "Optical Mark Recognition". Its an Answer sheet with check boxes, fields to fill in. These are
    used for multiple choice tests also just by shading the circle. The valuation is done by feeding the form through reader.This reader will scan for the answers by the shaded circle. The accuracy is nearly 99%. This answer checking is done with the help of software.

    These are used in surveys also for checking the products in some of the companies,where there will be choices to mark. Even though the result is quick sometimes they are also checked by teachers for 100% accuracy.

    The full form of OMR is 'Optical Mark Recognition'. This OMR sheet is widely used in competitive examinations, where the marked answers of the Multiple Choice Questions (MCQ) by the candidates are evaluated by specially designed software. This method has reduced the chance of inaccuracy in evaluation to almost 0%. On the other hand, simple mistakes or unintentional ink-mark by the candidates may cause non-evaluation/rejection of their respective OMR sheets.
    Caution: Explosive. Handle with care.

    OMR is short form for Optical Mark Recognition.
    This type of process is used for evaluation of responses in competitive exams,surveys etc. This is preferred because in shorter period the answers can be evaluated and results can be published early with little error.
    The evaluation of these are done using computer which compares the dot pattern of examinee with correct dot pattern and where it matches it allot the point to it. Then total marks are aggregate of the total njmber of correctly matched dots ( minus the no of incorrect responses if there is negative marking).
