Top 5 Questionmark Videos in 2012

Posted by Julie Delazyn

Last week we highlighted our five most popular presentations on our SlideShare page. This week, we’re happy to focus our attention on videos – which offer such an easy way to share information.

You can find more than three dozen videos, demos and other resources in the Questionmark Learning Café about assessment-related best practices and the use of Questionmark technologies.

So which videos have attracted the most interest this year?

Here are the top five:

5. iPhone App
4. Questionmark Live Multiple Choice Demo
3. Course Evaluation Survey in Questionmark Live
2. Auto-Sensing and Auto-Sizing Assessments
1. CSV Question Creation and Import

Thank you for watching, and look for more videos in 2013!

Auto-sensing and auto-sizing wizardry at work

Posted by Noel Thethy

The best way to describe the wizardry at work in Questionmark is to see it happen. Click here and watch what happens to the assessment screen as you resize it in your browser window. Did you miss it? Try it again.

What you would have see (if you are using a supported web browser) is the assessment screen resizing and adjusting to accommodate the screen size. When reducing your browser, the buttons get smaller, the text wraps the screen and resizes so it’s still readable, and the date and time disappear when there is not enough space. If you are not using a supported browser or you are using a mobile device, you would see Questionmark’s ability to auto-detect your browser/device and display a compatible version of the assessment.

Auto-sensing and auto-sizing make it possible to reuse the same assessment in a variety of different circumstances without needing to create new templates or assessments for each occasion. Without modifications you can embed assessments in learning materials, display surveys in your portal, and deliver  assessments via mobile devices. (Each time we update our software, we test for compatibility with the latest browsers — so that participants can easily view questions on whatever device they are using.)

Short quiz on the history of assessment

john_smallPosted by John Kleeman

How well do you know the history of assessment? Did you know, for instance, that the Likert scale, used for surveys in which respondents specify their level of agreement (.e.g., Agree / Neither Agree nor Disagree / Disagree) to various statements, was invented only 80 years ago?

Here is a short 8-question summer quiz on the history of assessment. I hope you enjoy it.

As with all assessments in Questionmark Perception version 5, this assessment auto-senses and auto-sizes to fit the device, page-size or frame it’s on. The assessment you see here is embedded in the blog page. If you want to see the assessment in a different size, try calling the same URL ( directly from your browser and you’ll see that the Next and Submit buttons and other screen furniture will size themselves to fit the screen you are on.

Some day, all assessments will be like this.
