Bridge Paper and Digital
Designed to work with every DataLink scanner, DataLink Connect converts pencil marks into pixels … and then into powerful data.
The world of education is increasingly digital, even if every classroom, school or institution isn’t. That’s why Apperson developed their exclusive DataLink Connect software - to bridge one data world to the other.
DataLink Connect test scoring and reporting software enhances Apperson’s already smart scanners. No matter which DataLink test scanner you choose, DataLink Connect unites it with your Windows- or Mac-based computer, applying digital power to data scoring, analysis and reporting. And making sure all data captured can later be released to popular gradebooks. Microsoft Excel, or a district or institution database.
