Questionmark teams up with Skillable to offer performance-based testing

John Kleeman, Founder of Questionmark

Questionmark, the online assessment provider, announced its latest test format designed to validate practical skill levels for IT professionals. With performance-based testing from Questionmark, and in partnership with Skillable, candidates—be they corporate or education-based—can show their skills in authentic lab environments which allow employers, credentialing companies, and educators to make more informed decisions for their business.

What are the benefits of Questionmark’s new product?

The benefits of performance-based testing include:

  • Authentic lab environments for accurate skill assessment: assess practical skills accurately and make more informed decisions about employees and candidates.
  • Protect against test fraud: while not impossible, the ability to commit test fraud via performance testing is much more difficult, adding an extra layer of validity to test results.
  • Scale your organization: build and scale your performance testing alongside other assessment types in one easy-to-use platform.
  • Manage tests with ease: easily schedule, track and report on lab-based assessments.
  • Grow and globalize: deliver anywhere without physical test centres, including new markets
  • Enjoy high-value certifications: offer higher value credentialing and certifications with well-designed and high-fidelity performance tests that show not only if a candidate has the appropriate knowledge but if they also can apply that knowledge in a real-world setting

What were the executive’s thoughts on the product?

John Kleeman, Founder of Questionmark, said: “The ability for firms to assess practical skills and make more informed decisions about their employees and candidates is a powerful benefit of lab-based testing and one we’re pleased to have developed alongside Skillable.”

Accurately assessing a candidate’s real-world application of knowledge is a central aspect of many organizations, whether it’s generally upskilling a SMEs workforce or ensuring an individual in an IT role has the technical skills to perform. Performance-based testing in lab-based environments with Questionmark provides a superior level of insight and accuracy.
