If the answer to a question is in numerical format, an integer type block is used. Here, instead of providing the students or candidates with the usual 4-5 options, students are provided with ten or more options. Students are required to select one of the options from the several provided in the integer type block.
The best part of using the Addmen OMR software is that it not only reads the integer type MCQ blocks but also designs them.
You can easily create such blocks by using the drag and drop method.
Integer blocks can appear alone on an OMR sheet or along with other types of MCQ blocks.
Integer type MCQ blocks appear as a columned list with the numbers 0-9.
Students need to mark one of the ten bubbles as the right answer.
If the answer to the question is in single digit, only one column containing the number 0-9, is provided.
In case the answer is in two digits integer, two columns containing the numbers 0-9 each, are provided. In this case, the students get 99 options as their right answer for the equation or problem.

However, the second section has integer type blocks. There are 30 questions in total in this section.
