>80% of the markers are passed by Day 5, colonic transit is not grossly abnormal.
When remaining markers are scattered about the colon, condition is most likely hypomotility or colonic inertia.
When remaining markers accumulate in the rectum or rectosigmoid, this is most likely functional outlet delay, e.g., internal rectal prolapse, anismus.
