Labels vs. Values in the OMR Region Properties

Labels represent the answer choices for the particular question. They can be in textual or numeric format. When the forms are scanned, you see the Labels in the data grid. 

When using the Textual data type, each Label has an associated Value. By default, Values are ordered sequentially, though you may change them as desired. The Values are used in Remark Quick Stats to calculate statistics, such as means. The Values are also used when exporting data to the SPSS format.

Note: When grading tests, the Values are not point assignments for correct and incorrect responses. Point assignments are handled in the question's properties or Advanced Grade.
