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. Accessing live assessment through Invigilation tab

    Ability to access a live/in progress/user disconnected assessment through the invigilation tab. This would allow a teacher to open a candidates live assessment and review what they have done so far. This is particularly useful in CBP where at the moment teachers must use the keycode to access the assessment to see candidates evidence. Using the keycode is admin-heavy and instead double-clicking on the assessment in invigilation would be a more efficient and attractive method for teachers

  3. Cursor in entry field - secureclient

    Would be good when start typing the Keycode to have the cursor in the entry field. Currently this does not happen.

  4. Item Name Auto Set to ID option

    Presently you have the option to edit the individual quesitons to be named however you would like.
    In a number of cases this isn't an issue; however it would be beneficial to have the option of automatically setting the item name to be the ID.

    The item ID is significantly more useful in the majority of cases and in some cases it is needed to identify information when cross referencing with an external source.

  5. Share multiple subjects with a centre at the same time

    Currently each subject has to be shared with a centre individually. For qualifications such as Functional Skills where there are eight subjects this means a user has to repeat the sharing process eight times. It would be easier if a user could select multiple subjects and share them with a centre at the same time.

  6. Printed Test with all questiontypes

    If not supported questiontypes are in a TestForm, this TestForm is not available for printing via the Testwizard. I think all TestForms should be available for printing, but then only with the content that is available to print.
    This is almost like the way the printed version is in Test Creation.
    Only with the exception that all possible content of all questiontypes should be printed.

  7. Folder and file management of projects

    I'm tidying up a messy collection of many people's practice files in a 'Testing' project. 2 things:
    1. Folder moving: When I drag a folder from the bottom up to the top, it doesn't scroll. I have to move up 20, scroll up, move another 20, until I get to the top. Can we have a function to select a folder and have 'move' (up arrow/down arrow)?
    2. The "i" (info) hover-over is great, but it currently only tells me the item name and ID, but that's exactly the info I have on that line anyway! It would be really…

  8. Multiple candidate exam

    It would be nice to have an exam (of sorts) in which a center can schedule multple candidates for one exam (which is setup specifically for this purpose).

    The exams would appear as 1 entry with 1 keycode and be run in the normal way but when run would have a number of tabs to represent the candidates.

    Each candidate would get the same exam/questions etc. and the purpose of this exam would be for an assessor to assess the learner's competency against specific requirements.

    At the point of submission (into results) this should then split into the individual learner's…

  9. Change error message double questions or rules

    When a Dynamic TestForm has exactly the same rules or a fixed test has the same question multiple times in the TestForm Surpass generates an error message:
    1 paper could not be generated in a timely fashion. Cannot select a minimum of 1 questions from a choice of only 0 (.......) (0)

    For users it's not clear what they have done wrong.
    Can you make the message more clear?

  10. Centre Stats improvement

    On the #setup/centres page I can see that a centre has "X" amount of subjects attached. It would be very good to be able to click on this number which would then tell you what those subjects are. At the moment I cant find a way of seeing these subjects without clicking on every subject and then seeing if its shared with a particular centre.

  13. Randomisation of answeroptions Drag and drop

    In the Drag and Drop Questions the answeroptions have permanent order of presenting to the candidate. This question type is usable in several different ways. F.i. when you want to order parts of sentences to the right sentence. For this kind of use it would be helpfull to randomise the anweroptions.

  15. Have the ability to add multiple media files using 1 click

    It would be useful to have the ability to add multiple source files using 1 click, e.g.
    click on Add Source
    Filter Order By - "Last Date"
    Select many files instead of 1 at a time.

    Thank you for your Idea.

    We understand your requirements and this Idea will be moved to the status of “Gathering Feedback and Votes”.

  16. Introduce share subject permission so user doesn't have to be a site administrator to share subjects with centres

    Currently a user has to be a Site Administrator to see the Share Subject button in Subjects which they need to share subjects with centres. This means the user has a higher level of access than they need for their job. There are existing Create Subjects and Manage Subjects roles but neither of these allow a user to share a subject. A new Share Subject role could allow access to this and would let the user to carry out their job without needing to be a Site Administrator and having access to parts of the system they don't need.

  17. Live items should have an icon to indicate that they are already live

    Questions that are set to live should have an icon next them. This way a user can quickly tell if a question was set to live and set it appropriately if needed. Would make it easier to ensure a test is appropriately created and prevent having to hunt down the offending item that prevents a test from being valid.

  18. Introduce external item sources role so a user doesn't have to be a site administrator to link a CP project to a subject

    Currently a user has to be a Site Administrator to see the External Item Sources radio button in subject groups. This means that a user that works in item and test creation has access to the whole system when they don't need for their job. This could be included in the Manage Subjects role as these users also work in ContentProducer. This would allow them to link CP projects to a subject group with being a Site Administrator and having access to parts of the system they don't need.

  19. Ability for learner to see correct answer on item review

    In Itembank it would be useful to have an option where we could choose if a learner could see the correct answer to a question as part of item review at the end of an assessment. So at the moment they see a cross or tick against their answers but it would be useful to also have an option to highlight the correct answer if different to options selected. This should be configurable for each assessment created so option in IB. Initially for MCQ/MRQ only but could be expanded to other question types.
