How to Process PSAT Tests Using the Socrato Software

When it comes to processing tests, users and organizations of different sizes have different needs. Socrato has created several methods for processing tests. Choose the one that matches your personal and organization's needs best:


Online Bubble Sheet

(For Students & Tutors)

Socrato has online "smart" bubblesheets that can be used to capture student answer responses.

Students can use the online bubblesheets while taking the test or after their test is completed on paper.



Bulk upload

(For Tutors & Schools)

Many of our customers are able to produce a digital output of their student response data.

Using Socrato's upload tool they can process all student responses.



Scanner Service

(For Tutors & Schools)

Because many K-12 and admissions prep tests are still paper and pencil based, student responses are captured on paper bubblesheets.

Socrato has created a utility service that allows you to process tests in bulk using a conventional office scanner.
