The Electric Kool-Aid Askia Test

Abstract: Survey scripting and coding have lots in common and we should bring testing techniques into Survey Design. For this we have improved Random Data Generation and created a new Tools module called ‚ÄúScript Verification‚ÄĚ. SurveyMonkey, Google consumer surveys and other disruptive DIY technologies have changed the Market Research industry. Any marketing director can put together an online survey, get sample from a number of panel providers and have results to their strategic questions in hours. But Askia software is not designed for marketing directors. It has been…

Cumulative updates & future milestones

Over the past month, we have slightly shifted our development & release process with askiavista: instead of longer development cycles with many fixes & improvements, we have began to release smaller versions that mainly include fixes where new features are added at a slower pace.

Below, a breakdown of the two latest minor updates for askiavista: Version 6.0.3.1 released 21/11/2014 Add footnotes property to tables (new)…

Significance and Count Threshold

From time to time clients will raise a query regarding¬†sig testing (Column significativity on closed) for a particular cell changing when the total base of their table grows, even though the count and % for…

Myforce opens a new office in Prague!

I have a bit of important MyForce news to share with you: we opened a new office in Prague, Czech Republic!

As Myforce keeps on growing both in turnover and in number of countries where our solutions are installed, opening MyForce CZ was a logical next step for us. Choosing Prague as our new office location is no coincidence, as we had good reasons to opt for this particular city: First…
