What is a performance assessment app?

A performance assessment app is a web or mobile application for users to test their knowledge of a particular subject. Performance assessment apps are frequently used by students to prepare for in-class tests and quizzes. The app may allow users to submit anonymous questions that are answered by other peers, view different types of questions, set reminders for upcoming tests, and review received results.

Performance assessment apps are similar to other productivity apps such as project management apps, time-tracking apps, to-do list apps, and task management apps. Popular performance assessment applications include Toggl, Time Doctor, and Harvest.

Here are some recent performance assessment app examples built with Crowdbotics:

  • This app is made for athletes and coaches to accurately report assessment results via facial recognition software that has already been built. From there, coaches have the ability to reach out to connect with players directly and add to 'my players' or 'my teams'.

  • App would calculate metrics of athletes. Full video recording either through device or external device like a GoPro. The AI would take said video, analyze it and input it in the system.

How to successfully grow your performance assessment application

Performance assessment apps deliver value to users by providing in-depth information about their performance, and by helping them improve that performance. In order to increase the number of users that they see over time, performance assessment apps should make their content attractive to a wide range of potential users. For example, some performance assessment apps are specifically designed for amateur athletes, while others are designed for professionals.

Risks and challenges of building a performance assessment application

A learning and performance assessment app could potentially expose users to employment discrimination on the basis of protected characteristics. The app should be programmed to prevent bias in its scoring mechanism, to ensure that it complies with all applicable legislation and industry standards. If your app is intended to be used by employers, you will also need to take steps to protect user data by implementing measures for preventing unauthorized access and keeping sensitive personal information confidential.
