Where to Buy Scantrons Nearby: Walmart? Staples? Answered

Short Answer: The only places where you can find name-brand Scantron testing forms are on the Scantron website and at university bookstores.

For information about different types of Scantron forms, as well as where to buy them, see below.

Where to Buy Scantrons

Knowing where to buy Scantron forms can save you in a bind. There are several different types of Scantron forms, so it’s also 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 Scantron website, but you’ll need to buy them in bulk (i.e., packages of 500).

Off-Brand Scoring Sheets

If you don’t specifically need Scantron brand sheets, there are other places you can find similar scoring sheets that will still scan and grade properly, according to brand claims and customer reviews. You can find off-brand scoring sheets at the following places:

  • Amazon: Sells a number of alternative testing form brands (paid partner link). You can get a pack of 50 SCANTEST compatible testing forms for about $6.
  • eBay: Sells off-brand Scantron sheets. Be sure to check reviews before purchasing scoring sheets from this site to make sure the brand you choose works for your scanning/grading needs.
  • Apperson: Sells Scantron-compatible answer sheets. Apperson is a reputable source for testing and grading solutions, but you typically need to buy answer sheets in bulk.
