Questionmark Live browser-based authoring has some really exciting new features coming out soon. The latest: Hierarchical topics and assessment creation enhancements.
Hierarchical topics

  • The Topics tab will feature a single-page interface where the Topic tree and questions list are shown on the same page, saving time when switching between Topics — just click on the Topic you want to view and the questions list immediately updates, displaying the questions contained within that particular Topic without having to leave the screen.
  • Topic hierarchies will be maintained when exporting and importing Qpacks —  compressed files containing all the questions, wording and resources used in a Question Set.
  • You will be able to share Topics at any level in the Topics hierarchy  with other Questionmark Live users (i.e., you could share a particular Topic without sharing a Topic at a higher or lower level in the hierarchy).

Assessment creation enhancements
We’re also making  a number of changes to assessment creation in Questionmark Live, so that you can create a Test, Exam, or Quiz, in addition to a Course Evaluation survey.
Existing Questionmark Live assessments will be maintained as Tests (existing Course Evaluation surveys will remain Course Evaluation surveys). The new assessment creation process will allow you to create and re-order multiple question blocks and assessment outcome blocks; configure settings such as time limit, security level and feedback level for an assessment,  and choose delivery options like  Save-As-You-Go.
Stay tuned on the blog for more details about these and other great features.
