– Quizzing technology, and much more added to this instant web digital
feedback tool

Phoenix, AZ – April 2, 2002 – Tired of distributing and tabulating paper
quizzes by hand? Wish you could instantly compile the latest customer
feedback trends? Today, Waves in Motion released Dragon Web Surveys 6.5, an
upgrade to the powerful, cross-platform, FileMaker Pro-based system which
allows users to create, publish and tabulate internet-based surveys, with no
web programming needed.

With a re-designed interface, Dragon 6.5 adds the power of built-in support
for web-based quizzes. Administrators can select between two types of
questions (single and value) and assign a score to every question. When the
responses are compiled, instantly view the totals scored by each individual
on a summarized score card based on each section, or keep the results

“Also new to surveys is the ability to attach a point value to any answer,”
said Vincenzo Menanno, President of Waves in Motion. “This very powerful
feature allows the dragon to total up all the points, and rank them in
order of importance. An example might be to attribute high points to
companies with more than 20 employees, and sales of over 2 million.
The Dragon makes it really easy to find potential leads. Just export
results and sort by points.”

“The Dragon’s ease-of-use, intuitive interface, flexibility, and automatic
scoring provided unprecedented real-time insight into how students were
faring, and allowed for immediate intervention and class improvements. The
Dragon permitted me to build a meaningful assessment tool and allowed the
students to provide valuable input, yielding a much improved learning

“In one day we had the survey up and running. The results are provided
graphically and numerically in a way that is very useable. The hardest part
