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.

  7. Test Wizard: make it possible to add random x questions from a folder of a Subject

    Right now you only can select questions and add them to the test you are creating.
    Make it possible to put to high light a folder, show how many questions are available in this folder, and type a number of random questions you like to add from this folder to the test.

  9. An audio/video/microphone pre-check on the keycode screen for the tablet app

    Candidates need to be able to test the audio, video and microphone capabilities of their tablet devices before they enter into a test to ensure they are able to answer any listening or speaking test questions without any problems, the tablet app does not have a pre-test check which would enable this to be carried out.

  11. 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.

  12. Friendly questions, or case questions

    A lot of teachers use case questions in their tests (there is another idea in this portal that's more or less the same).

    I'd like to call them Friendly Questions, the oposite of enemy questions.
    Where enemy questions are excluded in a test when one of them is included, the oposite goes for friendly questions: if one of them is included, the rest should be included as well. Preferabely if you could add a case discription to them.

  13. Passmark according to Learning Outcomes

    Currently you can assign passmark's to a section, but you cannot assign passmark's to Learning Outcomes. The request is to be able to build an assessment and specify the passmark that the candidate must achieve for a Learning Outcome with the option to be able to randomise all items and Learning Outcomes within the assessment.

    A possible extension of this requirement is to serve up a resit test which only covers the Learning Outcomes that the candidate has failed in previous assessments.

  17. Item Performance Report - present all questions together

    Item Performance Report - present all questions together as well as in separate papers. It would be good to get the P values for questions across all tests so that we can have a reasonable idea about how an item performs over time and to eliminate the variables of particular cohorts.

    Completed  ·  Sophie Brumfitt responded

    From Release 1.3 you can now choose to create either General or Correct/Incorrect feedback for all computer marked items; this can then be made available to candidates either during or after a test.

  19. Duplicate audit history when copying item

    When an item is copied/duplicated, it would be useful for authors to be able to see the full history of the original item in the copied item's audit history, so users can view all changes made to an item and if needed, compare reporting data for original and copied items.

  20. SecureClient and Surpass connectivity diagnostic

    After centres download SecureClient, it would be really helpful if a connectivity daignostic could be provided to ensure that any communication blockage between SecureClient and Surpass can be quickly resolved. In this way Centres could be guided in making the necessary tweaks on their network.

    Click the System Check button in Secure Client screen to go through the procedure.
