Questionmark Live Now Includes the Numeric Question Type

Posted By Doug Peterson

Questionmark Live continues to grow and add new functionality!

In this video, I will take you on a tour of the latest addition to Questionmark Live, the Numeric question type. Not only can you create a simple question with a single numeric answer, you can create questions that require multiple numeric answers — something that’s a bit complicated to do in Authoring Manager but very easy to do in Questionmark Live!

Adding a “question not answered” outcome in Questionmark Live

Posted By Doug Peterson

When people are creating questions, they will very often add an extra outcome that accounts for participants who do not answer a question. This allows the author to give specific feedback for this situation. This video shows you how to add an additional “question not answered” outcome in Questionmark Live!

Installing Perception in Amazon’s Cloud – Part 2

Posted bySteve Lay

In my last post, I introduced system administrators and developers to Amazon’s cloud-based computing service EC2 (Elastic Compute Cloud) and showed how to launch a virtual machine suitable for installing Questionmark Perception.

In this part, I show you how to log in to your virtual machine for the first time and some basic settings required to get ready for the installation.  Next time I’ll talk about the installer pre-requisites.

Authoring questions in a CSV file and importing them into Questionmark Live

Posted By Doug Peterson

Questionmark Live is an easy means of authoring questions, but sometimes it’s helpful to import questions authored elsewhere.

Being able to import questions that have been saved in a CSV file makes a lot of sense when an author is traveling and doesn’t have access to Questionmark Live — or when authoring has been contracted out to someone who doesn’t use Questionmark Live or an author simply prefers to work in Excel.

This video focuses on authoring questions in a simple spreadsheet, saving it as a CSV file, and importing that file into Questionmark Live.

Configuring Mobile Apps with Customer Number

Posted by Jim Farrell

I recently shared a video that showed how easy it is to configure our mobile apps to access your installation of Questionmark Perception. But I actually left out one of the best features within our apps: configuring with a customer number.

If you contact Customer Care, they can give you  a number that you can use within your mobile apps to access your installation, On Premise or OnDemand. This allows you to easily share the number to your user base without having to worry about a long URL address. Watch the following video to see how easy it is to use a customer number to configure your Questionmark Mobile App.

With the Questionmark European Users Conference just completed in Amsterdam this week, we are gearing up for the 2011 Users Conference in Los Angeles March 15 – 18.

We’re very pleased that Bryan Chapman will present the keynote address there. As Chief Learning Strategist at Chapman Alliance, Bryan is involved in providing research-centric consulting solutions that help organizations define, operate and optimize their strategic learning initiatives. His talk on Assessment’s Strategic Role in Enterprise Learning: Innovation and Trends will include examples of innovative assessment strategies that have improved learning and performance within many different organizations.

In addition to tech training, best practice presentations, demonstrations of new technologies, meetings with Questionmark product managers and drop-in meetings with the Questionmark techs, the conference includes case studies and peer discussions presented by Questionmark users. The call for proposals is now open, so we hope that Perception users who are thinking about attending will consider their own participation in the conference program.

This video will give you a general overview of what happens during the conference.
