Knowing where to buy scantrons can save you in a bind. Though the only places where you can find Scantron brand testing forms are on Scantron’s website and at university bookstores. Similar scoring forms from other brands are said to work just as well and can be found on Amazon.com and eBay. For information about different types of Scantron forms, as well as where to buy them, see below.
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). The only other places we found sell only off-brand Scantrons.
- Amazon does not sell brand-name Scantron forms, but it does sell a number of alternative testing form brands (paid partner link) like the green Scantest-brand testing forms. Some off-brands claim to scan and grade properly, just like a real Scantron. Based on customer reviews, this appears to be true. You can buy 50 SCANTEST-100 882-E Compatible Testing Forms (paid partner link) for $7.
- eBay also has off-brand Scantron sheets. One option to assure quality is to find a highly-rated alternative brand on Amazon.com and search for that brand on eBay.
