  • After the first stack of sheets is finished scanning, you will be asked if you want to scan more. choose Yes and repeat until all necessary sheets are processed.

  • The results of the scanned sheets will appear on the screen. Each line represents one scanned exam sheet.
  • As soon as all sheets are scanned, you propably need to correct potential errors. (such as empty fields, double checked fields, etc.)
  • To do so, locate the cells marked with colors and manually choose the correct entry by clicking into the cell. Each color represents a different type of error.
