Efficient paper feedback surveys
October 11, 2013 8:04 AM Subscribe
I want to give paper surveys to a number of people and then use a computer to compile the responses. My thought is to use a camera or scanner to enter the evaluations into the computer, and then run some sort of OCR (which i know nothing about) or other program to highlight which boxes have X's in them or which items are circled, and then throw all that into an excel spreadsheet for further analysis. From a technology standpoint, (a) is this possible? (b) is this possible to set up in a week? (C) is this possible in such a way that tech-illiterate people can do it swiftly once it's been set up?
