NORWALK, CT. – December 21, 2009 – The HR-XML Consortium has recertified testing and assessment software provider Questionmark as conforming to the Consortium’s open data exchange standards.

Conformance to standards can help employers achieve smoother integrations between the Questionmark™ Perception™ assessment management system and core HR systems, ultimately making it faster and easier for HR managers to perform essential tasks such as scheduling assessments or accessing results.

I’d encourage anyone looking for an effective assessment results exchange format to look at HR-XML because it’s simple and practical.”
