Ideas Portal (Closed)

The Surpass Ideas Portal is now closed.

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. Ability to add word counter

    We want to have the possibility to add a word counter by essay questions. A student doesn't have to count the words if they have to write an essay with a minimun of words.

  3. Allow Primary Centre Association to be changed

    I would like to be able to change the primary centre associated for a Subject after migration. This will help me to reorganise my subjects by associating them with the correct centres.

  5. Schedule: Import Candidates -> please make it possible to import known Candidates by Excel

    Right now you need to type the Candidate Ref. + Date of Birth 1 by 1.
    We like to import Candidates which are known as a Candidate in the Surpass system using an Excel sheet. Candidate Ref. should be enough. Date of Birth should be optional.

  7. Marking file attach questions

    When marking a file attach question you see the same two icons as a candidate; download file and upload file. As teacher you need to click on download to check the file uploaded by the candidate. It is not possible to add corrections. It is also not possible to write corrections at all or you have to use "Notes", but notes are not mentioned to be used for writting the corrections (I think).

    Here one should expect that download means download the file which was uploaded by the candidate. And upload means upload the candidates file again but this time…

    Have the ability to create enemy items, to prevent questions from appearing together, if similar questions are used or some questions give away the answers to others.

  12. Enhancements to the Centres Report

    In the Reporting tab within the Centres Report Screen the following changes would enhance the report:
    The line graph would be better displayed as a bar chart.
    The x axis title "Month" should be renamed as the year used in the drop down list above.
    The y axis title "Volume of Tests" should be renamed "Number of Tests"
    The graph title "Centre Test Volume Statistics" should be renamed " The Number of Tests Taken".
    The line label "Average" should be renamed "The Mean for all Centre".

  15. New Hotspot Question Type

    Allow users to create questions that ask the candidate to select/highlight areas of an image to get the correct answer. Authors need to be able to use abstract shapes, as well as circles and rectangles, to define correct areas though.

    Completed  ·  Sophie Brumfitt responded

    The Hotspot question type is available from Release 1.3 and allows you to select the correct area of an image that your candidate will need to identify to gain marks. This means you can test the candidate’s ability to recognise and interpret a variety of images such as maps, graphs, tables or diagrams.

  16. Allow Item Reviewers to Submit Comments

    Authors should be able to add comments to an item when reviewing it, which other authors/reviewers are able to read and respond to.

    From Release 1.3 when authoring items, it is now possible to use images as answer options for multiple choice, multiple response and either/or questions. You can even mix and match image answer options with text answer options.

    The reports available in the Reporting Screen should appear in the following order from left to right: Centre, Tests, Item Performance, Item Production, Awards.
