Thank you to everyone who has contributed over the years by submitting and voting on ideas, which have all been extremely valuable to the development of Surpass. We are no longer accepting new ideas via the IdeasPortal.

We still want to hear ideas form the Surpass Community,and in order to streamline the process we’re moving to a new innovations management system, which will allow us to efficiently manage and review ideas.Surpass champions within each organisation will have access to the new system and will be sent details of this soon.

All ‘open’ ideas on the Ideas Portal will be sent back to the parent organisation that submitted them, for review and resubmission on the new system where appropriate.

Thanks again to everyone who has contributed.

  1. Surpass should provision template based Item creation

    In order to create item by using item Authoring tool could create more time and sometime unresponsive. Surpass should provision more into template based item creation. I mean every Item should have one template where end users would fill blank value once everything is validate upload strait away into our item bank.

    This will improve surpass capability up to next level.In order create item by using item Authoring tool, Surpass should have capability

  2. Add the ‘Track Changes’ option as available in Microsoft Word under the ‘Review’ tab.

    This can be especially useful for those who have remote users contributing to the question editing process, and greatly assist those responsible for reviewing/quality assuring these contributions.

  4. Keep the item order when adding many items to a Test Form. Avoid multiple clicking of the arrows.

    When adding many items to a Test Form using the Search facility, it should keep the order in which they were selected. Having to clicking the arrows many times to move the items is a pain!

  5. Increase range of file types and sizes to support candidate evidence

    Candidates currently use a variety of social media options, these have to be exported and in many cases cut into multiple versions to allow upload.

    The file size of 20MB does not support even standard jpg.sizes

    Hello,

    This feature already exists within Surpass. To do this you can allow upload of different file types and file sizes through the manual option in File Attach question type.

    Thanks

  7. Testing status for QA purposes

    Situation:

    An existing test has 3 test forms. All tests / test forms are live.

    Centres can schedule.

    Test forms are done through secure client.
    Learners will be assigned one of the test forms (automatic selection and randomisation of test forms).

    I want to add a fourth test form. How can I QA the new test form without the risk of a centre/learner accidentally being assigned the new test form under automatic selection/randomisation? In order to schedule the test and test it through the secure client, I have to make the test form live. Could there be another status for…

  9. Increase maximum characters in question comments field

    As we use this to provide referencing to the answer (inc. journal refs etc) 500 characters is very limiting - could this be increased please?

  10. sectiontitle in topbar Custom Branding Testprofile

    In the Teststyle Custom Branding the seciontitle isn't visible anymore in the top bar of Testdelivery.
    All out TestForms have multiple sections with different subjects. All these section have there specific title to give the candidates the information of the subject of the questions. A candidate needs to see in which section they are making questions.
    Till now we always used the Standard navigation (now called Legacy navigation). Because this will be removed from Surpass we need to go using the Custom Branding, but there we miss the sectiontitle in the topbar. Can this please put (back) in this version…

  11. To be able to flag a test as having suspected malpractice in Marking

    It should be possible for an examiner to flag a test as having suspected malpractice in Marking and for this to prevent the test from being submitted to Moderation even if it is 100% marked. Once the malpractice investigation has been completed the flag can be removed and the appropriate action taken.

  12. Ability to add question items/rules into an assessment which are flagged as for pretest

    A rule or fixed item could be added into an assessment and flagged as a pretest item. This means that although it is delivered to the candidate as part of the assessment it is not counted in results or visible in reporting at end of the assessment, marking, assessment audit or view marked assessments unless the user has appropriate permissions.

    Hello,

    This feature currently exists in Surpass. Within Test forms (Test Creation) you have the option to set items to be “Non-scored” which would work ad a solution to this idea.

  13. Full screen Test window (Secure Client)

    During Test delivery, via browser and Secure Client, the window is static and small for the most screens. See example attached.
    We would like to use the full screen to present the questions and other windows where candidates need to give their answers (like essay questions).
    I think there are two possibilities for this.
    The first and most efficient way is that the Window will be adaptive.
    The second possibility is to set the view of the test with the Testprofile.

    Hi,

    Thank you for your idea.
    As far as I understand your asking to be able to use more than 5 section in Test Creation.

    Since release 12.3 you have the ability to use up to ten sections on Test Creation and Test Wizard.
    I hope this answers your request.

  15. Give users the ability to configure timer pop-ups.

    It could be beneficial to have the ability to customise time remaining notifications rather than just having the 3 default times (30,15 and 5 minutes)

  16. Test Wizard. Paper and onScreen. Making 2 version (A and B) of the same selected questions

    Selecting Questions
    Method 1: Manual question by question
    Method 2: Selection rule based (folder selection)

    On the last page of the test wizard, we want an option to generate 2 (or more) versions of the same test (A and B). The same selected questions in a different order.

  17. Branding possibility pictures Home page

    Surpass has the possibility to setup own Branding settings.
    On the Homepage you can use an own banner, but the colors are not matching with the orange colors of the buttons on this page.
    It would be very helpful to have the possibility to change the color of these pictures.

    Your Idea was successfully completed and its now live on our Surpass 12.5 product.
    Thank you for your contribution.

  18. A way to highlight or mark a learner and their assessment in the marking and/or moderation screen

    If we need to investigate a learners assessment, there is always a risk that their assessment is marked and their result moderated and released. Therefore it would be really useful to have a way to highlight or mark a learners assessment in the marking and the moderation screen to alert colleagues to not mark or moderate the assessment.

    Hello,

    Currently in Surpass you can flag exams for suspected malpactice which would prevent exams from being marked and moderated. This would be a useful solution for this idea.

    Thanks

  19. Candidate Search Function

    I'm on the "#Setup/Candidates" page and at the moment it appears one can only search for candidates using the "Search by Ref" box. It would be very useful to have the ability to search by using First and Last names as well.

  20. Create preview for every question in a folder.

    To create new questions you must know what questions are already in the folder / learning objective (leerresultaat). Currently you must open every single question in the folder and write (parts of) the questions down to get an overview of all your current question. This can take up to 15-20 minutes, even before you can start writing your first question.

    I would like to be able to select a folder and get an overview of all my questions in windowview. Ideally a would like to move the questions up and down to organize them. If you could add the itemanalysis…
