About

Welcome to this blog on SharePoint and assessments. Use the RSS link on the right to keep up-to-date with posts.

I’m John Kleeman, Founder and Chairman of Questionmark, and I’m the lead author on this blog.  I have a first class degree from Trinity College, Cambridge, and am a Chartered Engineer. I wrote the first version of the Questionmark assessment software system and then founded Questionmark in 1988 to market, develop and support it. I have also participated in several standards initiatives: I was on the original team that created IMS QTI and was the instigator and chairman of the panel that produced the Standard BS 7988, which has now become ISO 23988.

This blog focuses on using assessments within SharePoint. I hope it helps you use assessments for Learning, Training and Compliance inside the wonderful but sometimes quirky ecosystem that is Microsoft SharePoint!

    Hi John,

    My name is Mark Kashman, SharePoint Online product manager at Microsoft. I wanted to ping you about your recent article “SPO in O365 Good/Bad/Brilliant/Ugly” specifically to address one of your uglies, “Large Lists.”

    I wanted to direct you to this Office.com article that explains a number of ways users can interact with large lists in SharePoint, and is relevent to SPOnline: http://office2010.microsoft.com/en-us/sharepoint-server-help/manage-lists-and-libraries-with-many-items-HA010378155.aspx?redir=0

    Some of the main concepts are:
    -Using Datasheet/Access Services view
    -Creating Filtered Views that each only have 5000 or fewer items
    -Using Access or SharePoint Workspaces to manipulate the list
    -creating a folder structure such that each folder has 5000 or fewer items

    Appreciate your feedback, and a chance to chat about your article…

    Thanks,
    Mark Kashman
