Where to Buy Scantrons
There are several different types of Scantrons, so it’s important to find out exactly which form(s) you need before making your purchase. ScantronScore.com has photos and short descriptions of each type of form available. A popular form is the SC882-E 100-question answer sheet.
There aren’t many places that sell Scantrons. Your best bet will be a university bookstore. You can also buy Scantrons directly from the brand’s website, but you’ll need to buy them in bulk (such as packages of 500).
