This week’s “how to” article highlights the “Question Type Report,” one of the Questionmark Analytics reports now available in Questionmark OnDemand.

  • What it does: This item bank report tells how many questions you have in your repository by question type (e.g., multiple choice, yes/no, etc.).
  • Who should use it: This report gives testing, assessment, learning and education professionals a quick view of what their item bank looks like.
  • How it looks: This report lists various color-coded question types (e.g., numeric, essay, multiple response, multiple choice) and  graphically represents how many of each type there are. The report can be viewed in a web browser or downloaded and distributed as a PDF. The CSV version of this report lists question types in the first column and the number of questions per topic in the remaining columns. The question detail CSV distribution provides information such as each question’s Perception question ID, status, topic and question type. You can see the information for your entire repository or just for specific topics.
