New Questionmark App for Android™ phones available from Android Market


Posted by Jim Farrell

As Android phones and other mobile devices become the constant companions of learners the world over, mobile delivery offers an affordable way to administer quick knowledge checks, surveys and other assessments to people on the move or at work.

So we are pleased to announce that a new Questionmark App that enables streamlined assessment delivery to Android phones is now available for free download from the Android Market.

The app is completely configurable, so your participants can access assessments scheduled for them in your Questionmark Perception v5 repository. The app — currently available in English, Spanish, French, German, Portuguese, Dutch, Swedish, Russian, Chinese, Japanese and Korean — is designed to detect the language setting of each learner’s device.

If you don’t have Questionmark Perception v5 yet, you can still try this new app: Simply install it and choose the “demo” option, and the app will let you try out several assessments available from Questionmark’s demonstration site.

Alan McCabe, a developer in charge of building Questionmark software, brings to his work a strong interest in making assessments accessible.

As someone who is partially sighted, Alan speaks from personal experience in this brief podcast about the accessibility tools we have provided in Questionmark Perception version 5 to accommodate the needs of participants with a variety of disabilities.

You can learn more about accessibility measures within Questionmark Perception by reading John Kleeman’s previous post on this subject and by taking a sample assessment on our try-it-out page. Look for the buttons at the top right of the screen, which allow you to change font size and change contrast.
