Questionmark OnDemand adds Job Task Analysis capability

Updated SaaS platform also adds compatibility with Federal Information Processing Standards (FIPS)

NORWALK, CT -- April 10, 2014 – The Questionmark OnDemand software-as-a-service assessment management platform has added several new features that will enable learning and assessment professions to run job task analysis assessments.

Questionmark OnDemand 2014.1 includes a Job Task Analysis (JTA) question type for identifying the essential tasks of a job and the skills, knowledge and ability required to succeed at it. A JTA Summary Report provides the total percentage and number of participants that have selected each task, dimension, and choice in a JTA question, and a JTA Dimension by Demographic Report groups results by task, dimension and demographic data.

This release also provides three new JTA-related OData feeds for Questionmark's API for Analytics. This API, based on the OData protocol, gives users secure access to assessment results data and the ability to provide access to results via custom dashboards or to analyze results using business intelligence applications.

JTA surveys are often used to construct and validate certification programs, to ensure that the questions on certification tests are relevant to the job. A new Results Export Report makes it possible to export the results from an assessment to a comma-separated ASCII file for use in a spreadsheet or statistics package.

Security improvements include compatibility with Federal Information Processing Standards (FIPS).

Questionmark OnDemand enables organizations to rapidly deploy their online testing and assessment programs either on a small scale or globally. OnDemand customers use Questionmark’s assessment authoring, delivery and analytical technologies in a secure, reliable environment in which they can deploy assessments rapidly and grow their implementation as needed.
