ScanMark iNSIGHT 4ES Information

The ScanMark iNSIGHT 4ES is a multiple-choice test scanner used by faculty to grade tests. Below you will find information on how to use the scanner hardware, fill out the forms, and also information on two different scoring programs, ParScore and QuickScore. ParScore is a more robust package with many features including a gradebook to keep track of the results of all tests. QuickScore is a simpler package to quickly scan in and score a single test.

How do I get the ParScore software installed?

Installing the ParScore client software on your office computer allows you to access any tests you scanned into the system and modify the data or print reports from your office.

Because administrative privileges on your office computer are required for software installation, the easiest way to get ParScore installed is to contact Help Desk and request assistance with installation. RU-Camden IT can install it for you.
