Carrboro, NC (PRWEB) June 16, 2004
Isoph, a leading provider of learning and communications software and services for mission-driven organizations, today announced the addition of powerful online assessment capabilities to its flagship software application, Isoph Blue. The online assessment engine is the latest in a line of features added to Isoph Blue in recent months and marks the end of IsophÂs spring 2004 development cycle.
"The ability to measure knowledge and learning is critical to the mission-driven organizations Isoph serves," said Jeff Cobb, CEO of Isoph. "The new Isoph Blue assessment engine gives our clients access to sophisticated yet easy-to-use tools for authoring, publishing, and tracking a variety of online testing activities. This new ability, along with enhancements released earlier in the spring, reinforces Isoph Blue as the clear choice for organizations dedicated to providing effective e-learning experiences for their stakeholders."
Basic features of the new assessment engine include:
- Display of assessments in courses authored in Isoph InstructorÂ or in any content object authored in Isoph Blue
- Dynamic, on-screen feedback to users for each assessment question
- Ability to track and report on answers submitted by users through the AICC-compliant Isoph Blue learning management system
- Ability for assessments to serve as pre- and post-tests in courses developed in Isoph InstructorÂ
- Ability to specify whether and how many times a user can retake an assessment
Isoph Blue enhancements released earlier in the spring included greatly expanded capabilities for working with Isoph Blue Idea SpacesÂ to create and manage facilitated online learning experiences and work groups. Using idea spaces, Isoph clients can create protected, multi-page work spaces within their Isoph Blue sites and enable access to work spaces only for specified users. Idea spaces may include a wide variety of content, including private discussion boards, file-sharing capabilities, and assessments created using the new assessment engine.
