STAMFORD, CT. - August 27, 2001. Testing and assessment software provider Question Mark Corporation has entered into a Value Added Reseller relationship with Rapid Learning Deployment, LLC (rapidLD), a professional services and consulting company that helps organizations improve their performance with complete, integrated, and flexible learning solutions.

rapidLD provides organizations with an analysis of their current learning environment and helps organizations develop and implement strategies to effectively integrate eLearning technology, based on strategic business goals and objectives. Based in Marietta, Georgia, rapidLD partners with companies such as Avaltus, Learnframe, Docent, ITC Learning, and now Question Mark to support the deployment of eLearning products and tools.

The company will be marketing Question Mark™ Perception™, which allows people to create question files without programming experience or knowledge of HTML.

Question types include multiple choice, multiple response, numeric, word response, essay, fill-in-the-blank, matching/ranking, hot spot, drag and drop, and matrix. They can present questions with videos, graphics and a wide variety of styles and can be deployed in Windows or Web environments.
