Questionmark Word Authoring Templates Help Subject Matter Experts

February 14, 2005

Questionmark Word Authoring Templates provide a familiar and easy-to-use authoring environment for teachers, trainers, and subject matter experts (SMEs). The templates enable a SME using Microsoft® Word to produce questions that can be delivered, tracked and managed with Questionmark Perception. The templates provide an excellent solution for SMEs who may lack easy or direct access to Perception. Plus, this new tool empowers non-technical SMEs — those who might lack the confidence or desire to create computerized assessments — with the ability to author online tests, quizzes, surveys and exams.

The Questionmark Word Authoring Templates can be freely distributed by a Questionmark Perception licensor to any number of SMEs. Each SME uses a special Word toolbar to select the type of question to create. The page then displays a form that the author fills in with the question’s stimulus, choices, score, and feedback. A single document can contain numerous questions. When finished, the author sends the Word file to the appropriate gatekeeper, who at the press of a button can publish the questions into QML for direct importing into Perception.

Questionmark’s Word Authoring Templates Offer

    • Authoring for SMEs within Microsoft Word
    • Easy-to-use question forms
    • Quick importing into Perception
    • Gatekeeper control over final publishing of questions
