Integrating with other systems: video tutorials

Julie Delazyn HeadshotPosted by Julie Delazyn

Although you can use Questionmark as a stand-alone Assessment Management System (AMS), it also integrates seamlessly with other key systems – everything from learning management systems and content management systems to portals and scanning technologies.

Questionmark Connectors make these integrations possible.

Some of these, such as the Blackboard Connector, the SAP Connector and the SharePoint Connector, are designed for use with specific systems.

We also support integrations with LTI-, AICC– and SCORM-compliant systems.

You can find video tutorials about many of these connectors in the Questionmark web site. There you’ll find videos on integrating with Moodle, SuccessFactors and Cornerstone OnDemand, as well as other systems such as SharePoint, Canvas, and Ning.

Here is a sneak peak – click to view each video:

New this Month in Questionmark Live: Improved Question Set Sharing

Posted by Jim Farrell

The hits keep coming. This month we have improved the look and feel of Questionmark Live with new buttons and improved Question Set sharing. Now when you create one shared question set, you can create another with the same shared permissions. You can also invite someone to join Questionmark Live via a shared question set or stop sharing a particular question set.

These new features are sure to make it easier for you to work collaboratively with your Subject Matter Experts (SMEs), and they’ll help you set up multiple question sets (topics) for item writing workshops. 

Watch the short video below to see how easy it is to create a new question set with sharing already set up!

How to Create Matching Questions in Questionmark Perception

Joan PhaupPosted by Joan Phaup

Quiz and test authors need an arsenal of different question types to suit various purposes. Matching questions, which present two series of words or ideas, ask participants to match items from one list to items within the other. Learners must correctly identify which items go together–say, for instance, a state or country and its capital.

Matching questions make it possible to measure a relatively large amount of knowledge in a small amount of space, but it’s important to bear in mind that they emphasize information recognition rather than information recall.

A matching item in Questionmark Perception might  look like the question below. In this example, which uses a graphical presentation format, someone has already started figuring things out!

Here’s a quick tutorial on how to create a matching question in Perception, with or without a graphical interface. The tutorial will also show you how to set up scoring and feedback.
