Extended Beta Test Phase Drawing to Close
Posted by Stan Kaufman on 01 April 2013 - 21:05 | Permalink
After a couple years experimenting with Q-Assessor, listening to feedback from users, and evaluating the opportunities for Q in various applications, we’re closing down the beta test phase. Thus new sign-ups are no longer being accepted.
It appears to us that Q-Assessor’s technologies have most potential in bespoke vertical applications and not in a general-purpose “online Q system” as Q-Assessor is currently configured. There just isn’t a sustainable market amongst the small, primarily academic Q practitioners out there. Q simply appears to be a too-little used methodology to support a web system like Q-Assessor. We have identified several specific applications where the Q technique might be quite valuable without invoking all the baggage that a specific identification with “Q” involves. We hope that Q-Assessor’s DNA will live on in other forms.
We will provide current users until 1 June 2013 to wind their current studies to conclusion and download their data. We are not supporting any new studies.
We appreciate the interest and feedback we’ve received about Q-Assessor.
