We loved seeing so many customers at our conference in Miami earlier this month! We learned so much and greatly appreciate the feedback people shared with us there.
From our exciting panel discussion — which brought together experts from Pacific Gas and Electric, Amazon, The Hartford and HRSG to discuss their valid and reliable processes for assessment — to our networking dinners around Miami Beach, it was a 3-day event packed with excitement and learning opportunities.
You can re-live those moments by browsing through the photos taken during the conference and our Next-Gen release party.
Reporting back from sessions he attended and conversations that took place at Questionmark Conference 2016, Questionmark Chairman John Kleeman has come up with 5 tips to making your assessments valid.

As we close this year’s Questionmark Users Conference I am — as always — amazed at how quickly the time has gone by since we arrived in Los Angeles a few days ago.
During yesterday’s keynote address, Bryan Chapman encouraged all of us to think more strategically about the use of assessments such as surveys, quizzes and tests. He introduced several scenarios – such as inefficiencies in aircraft maintenance, deficiencies in call center service quality and the need for retail associates to communicate effectively about thousands of products – and in each case asked how assessments can help. He answered that question with some terrific examples of assessment solutions that improved performance and saved organizations time and money. He also showed how some organizations are using assessments to enhance social and informal learning, which was a key theme at this year’s conference.
Another highlight from yesterday was the presentation of our first Questionmark Assessment Innovation Award to Accenture, which runs more than 30 internal certification programs.
Our conferences are never complete without some fun, and we had plenty of that during our big dinner party Universal Studios, where everyone was a celebrity! For more photos from the conference, check out our Flickr page.

It’s hard to believe the conference we’ve spent so many months planning is drawing to a close! We’re now in the final general session, where we’ll review what our Product Owners have learned from customers about possible new features during focus groups on Monday and Tuesday. Then we’ll gather customers’ feedback, which will help us set the course for future developments.
While we’re busy pondering the future, we’re also recalling all the learning and networking that have taken place here in Miami. We’d like to thank everyone who attended for the great memories and wish them safe journeys home.
