NORWALK, CT – June 15, 2011 – Questionmark has added a new statistical report for analyzing the quality of assessment questions to its software-as-a-service offering.

Questionmark OnDemand version 5.3 now has an interactive Item Analysis Report that provides visual cues to help users quickly spot results needing more detailed investigation. The HTML output of the report provides graphical and tabular summaries of statistics and allows users to click on specific items and drill down into specific item statistics and performance data. The report, which also offers and several publish-to-PDF and publish-to-CSV options, supports all question types commonly used on quizzes, tests and exams.

Another new offering is a Test Center Analysis Report, which allows users to evaluate the performance of participants that have been scheduled to take assessments at test centers and thereby identify potential test security issues. These two new reports are available within Questionmark Analytics, a next-generation reporting system that pulls data from a Questionmark® Perception® assessment management system repository and stores it in a Results Warehouse specially constructed for creating reports that users can mine for detailed information. Four of the other reports focus on analyzing course evaluation results; the remaining four include a survey frequency analysis report, a report that graphs assessment results over time, and two item bank statistics reports.

Questionmark OnDemand is a software-as-a-service (SaaS) solution that enables organizations to rapidly deploy their online testing and assessment programs either on a small scale or globally. The service is based on Questionmark’s D3 platform, offering 99.99% uptime and hosted in a state-of-the-art, SAS 70 Type II-certified data center with multiple redundant connections to the internet and power grid.
