Questionmark unveils new version of Perception

Testing and assessment software provider Questionmark has unveiled the newest version of the Questionmark Perception assessment management system.

Among a number of new features, questions can now be authored in Perception and then printed. Questionmark says participants can answer assessments using standard 'bubble sheet' forms that can be scanned and converted to a data file. Results can be uploaded to Perception and processed together with results from online assessments.

Eric Shepherd, CEO of Questionmark, said: "Online assessments offer many benefits, but in some cases traditional paper-and-pencil test delivery is a practical solution. With this release, our customers can deliver print-based assessments without sacrificing the reporting, security, automatic scoring, workflow management, item banking and other assessment management benefits they have come to expect from Perception."

In addition to the new 'Print and Scan' feature, the release also adds two new question types to Perception. The new 'File Upload' question type is designed to enable participants to upload files in response to questions - ideal, says Questionmark, for questions that require lengthy essay responses, or that may require audio, graphic or other formats in response to a question. In addition, the Survey Matrix question wizard is designed to enable authors to create a series of Likert scale survey questions.
