As usual, it has been a busy summer period for the KS team. Our 2014 library updates are in full swing, due to go live later this month. And the next release of the KS software platform is also due to go live shortly.
Here is a brief summary of what's included in this release:
We made a number of updates to the KS admin dashboard, to make searching & grouping library material more consistent.
You can now search on a range of new fields to manage your question library, including: question name, training tags, question type, skill level, parent module, parent test and task (T) or knowledge (K).
Draft and Published modules can now be searched and grouped:
Draft and Published tests can also now be searched and grouped:
Due to popular request, we added a delete option for child accounts. Be careful when selecting this option, however, as all related user and results data will also be removed!
Another popular request, we added the option to toggle off tests in your library, so they do not appear in your invite list dropdown (both in your dashboard Invites page and in the browser login dropdown menu).
We added an extra check box to cc admins on test invite mails.
You can now create a chart view of the questions which cause the 'Request training' button to be selected during live test sessions. This chart represents the most commonly requested training issues from your team.
You can now create a chart view of the questions which cause the 'Skip question' button to be selected during live test sessions. This chart represents the most commonly skipped questions issues from your team.
You can now include results from all linked accounts, when viewing data on the ‘Group Comparisons’ page. This makes results analysis across multi-office firms more meaningful.
You can now include results from all linked accounts, when viewing data on the ‘Global Comparisons’ page:
We added a new csv export for question results data, on the Results > Question Performance page:
This report displays: test name, test date, test score, test time, result ID, score & time values per question, average question score & time per question and training tags for each question.
We added a new tool for viewing 'required' and 'submitted' answer data for each question, on a per test basis.
We have made a number of improvements to the code which drives the test UI and user experience during live test sessions. This update addresses the issue of occasional error messages which display when submitting answers and removes the phantom page 'flicker'.
Plus a number of smaller updates, including:
Increased word count on the test settings welcome message/user instructions field.
Change advisory message on pick list questions.
Increase system timeout from 20 to 40 mins (if no onscreen activity occurs).
Main website refresh, including customer testimonials, product table and promo movie.
Updates to our own KSadmin interface, for analysing results and user data.
Later this month, we will also be adding the following updates:
New benchmark charts dropdown on Results > Global Comparisons page and include 2013 data, plus new test titles.
Module Performance chart page and csv export with per module results data.
Skipped questions search filter & csv export on Results > Data page.
