We are happy to announce the availability of a free Questionmark iPhone/ iPod touch app on iTunes that opens up new possibilities for delivering knowledge checks, quizzes and surveys to a wide, mobile audience: a great way to engage learners on the go!
The auto-sensing and auto-sizing capabilities of Questionmark™ Perception™ version 5 makes this type of app possible by streamlining and simplifying the delivery of surveys, quizzes and tests to multiple devices, in multiple contexts.
Try out the Questionmark iPhone/iPod touch app to take some Questionmark Perception assessments on your iPhone or iPod touch. Test your knowledge of world facts and geography with our “Round the World” or “State Capitals” quizzes or try your hand at several other topics. Imagine how this new delivery option could help your organization, and let us know what you think! (You will need to have iTunes installed on your computer and download the app from the Apple app store.)
Users of Questionmark Perception version 5 can have their own personalized apps so that their employees and/or students can access assessments, quizzes or surveys on the go.

One of my favorite new features in Questionmark Perception is Auto-Sensing and Auto-Sizing. This sounds important, but what does it mean?
When delivering an assessment, Perception version 5 auto-senses the participant’s device and browser, then delivers the assessment formatted appropriately for the device/browser’s requirements. Perception’s new “on the fly” auto-sizing dynamically adjusts and sizes the “screen furniture” and “skin” of an assessment – the buttons, controls and template graphics — so they fit (and look great) on just about any screen size or resolution imaginable.
Why is this important? In short, these new features take the guesswork out of blended delivery and enable you to author an assessment once, schedule it once and then deliver it in as many different ways as you like. I’ve put together a short video explaining how this works.
