Adding and removing users from a shared Question Set in Questionmark Live

julie-smallPosted by Julie Delazyn

I wanted to share a  feature in Questionmark Live that has proven to be both very popular and very important.

Questionmark Live offers the ability to easily share question sets with subject matter experts (SMEs) who are not part of your Questionmark Support Plan.

This is designed to help you share and revise your question sets with as many SMEs as your require, in order to create strong and defensible assessments.  After sharing your questions with SMEs it is easy to remove them from the list of users and un-share your questions.

Gathering comments from survey and course evaluation participants

Posted by Kate Soper

Are you delivering surveys or course evaluations? Why not enhance your questions with a participant’s comments box field? The comments box sits neatly below the question and will give your participants space to expand on their answers or provide you with additional comments and suggestions.
You can turn the participant comments box on and off in within Questionmark Perception’s Question Editor. It’s easy to add or omit a comments box when you are authoring in Questionmark Live, too. You can add participant comment boxes to most question types and view the responses in the Survey Report, Coaching Report and Question Statistics Report.  Participant comments boxes are also useful for questions you are beta testing.

For more information on using Questionmark Live to create your Course Evaluations, check out Jim Farrell’s blog post on that subject. Questionmark Support Plan customers can get more information about setting up comments boxes in this Knowledge Base article.

Getting the results you want by creating your own report filters

Posted by Kate Soper

When reporting on assessment outcomes, it’s often desirable to compare the performance of one  group  to that of another.  Perhaps you’d like  to filter the results of an evaluation according to the demographics of the participants or according to the course instructor, location or participant group.

Questionmark Perception makes this possible by enabling you define your own filters. For instance, you can identify certain questions in an assessment as demographic questions and have the answers to those questions saved in Special Fields that are set aside specifically for filtering data from the results. This means that questions asking participants to identify variables like their trainers or departments can then be used to filter your report results; the results you see only match participants who selected those answers.

You may designate up to 10 Special (demographic) Fields per assessment:

In addition to your demographic fields, you can apply filters for dates, date ranges, participant names, topics, and assessments so that you can view the information you need when you run your reports.

By the way, when creating a course evaluation in Questionmark Live, you can add questions designated as “demographic questions.” By default, any demographic question will automatically save to a special field.  Once you import the assessment into Questionmark Perception, you can change which special field that question data is saved to.

The use of filters is just one aspect of reporting in Questionmark Perception. For general information about Perception reports, click here.  Questionmark Support Plan customers can get details about using Special Fields with Perception in this Knowledge Base article.
