STAMFORD, CT – July 22, 2002 — Leading testing and assessment software company Questionmark and i3Dimensions Inc., an emerging leader in interactive 3D visualization and simulation software tools, today announced a new technology partnership to deliver significant advances in e-learning.
i3Dimensions’ breakthrough Pixel3™ technology allows Questionmark™ Perception™ users to integrate 3D visualizations into tests and assessments with ease on common PCs, enabling organizations to test students on their interactions with highly detailed 3D models. For example, trainers will be able to test a student’s ability to disassemble equipment in the correct order and identify parts.
“Pixel3 enables organizations to extend the boundaries of their e-Learning programs to include hands on, tactile training on complex equipment and assemblies,” said Questionmark President Eric Shepherd. “This 3D graphics technology offers a great way to reduce costs and increase organizational efficiency. Many of our customers stand to benefit from being able to run highly interactive Perception assessments with Pixel3 visualizations.”
“i3Dimensions is excited to be working with Questionmark,” said Paul Lindahl, President of i3Dimensions. “Together Pixel3 technology and Questionmark Perception offer non-technical users highly interactive and compelling e-Learning test and assessment solutions.”
i3Dimensions Inc. develops technology that provides visualization and simulation solutions, enabling modification and manipulation of complex 3D data in real-time on common PCs and other computing platforms. The company’s Pixel3 technology adds new capabilities to interactive 3D visualization for government institutions and discrete manufacturing enterprises like those in the automotive, aerospace and defense industries.
Questionmark has been producing testing and assessment software since 1988. Questionmark Perception allows people to create question files without programming experience. Users can categorize their question banks into topics and sub-topics from which to assemble tests and surveys. They can shuffle questions and answers for each participant and preview assessments to see how they will appear post-deployment. They can present questions with videos, graphics and a wide variety of styles. Participants receive feedback as specified by the author. Answers are saved to an encrypted file for scoring and analysis in a variety of report formats.
Some 1,400 businesses, governments, schools, colleges, and universities in more than 50 countries use Questionmark Perception. Typical applications include exams, quizzes, study aids, diagnostic tests, pre-course skills assessments, and course evaluations. Visit www.questionmark.com for more information.
