The bubble forms aren't that expensive, don't use the double layered ones, use the brown ones for 130 assessments as well as other assessments. IF you have people taking math and reading tests, you need two test forms anyway.

Greetings all - 

Our program recently purchased Tops Pro from CASAS to help us with our testing and registration processes.  We're having an issue though with the bubble forms and we'd like to hear from others.  We'd like to use one side of one form and one side of a different form - that is, we'd like to have our own version of the form printed with the sides that we need.  So far the word from CASAS is that this cannot be done.  This means that we'd have to waste our funds by buying two separate forms.    We went to another major company that makes bubble forms, but they just called CASAS and got the same answer.   We know that this is possible from a tech perspective.

Has anyone else run across this issue or know what to do?
