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. copy or 'edit and save as' option for paper based tests in the test wizard

    In the test wizard it's possible to edit an excisting test. It's not possible to copy an existing test or edit and save as. This functionality combined with the random selection of questions gives you the ability to very quickly and easily create multiple paper based tests and would decrease work load a lot!

  2. Bulk retire candidates

    I would like to bulk retire candidates and be able to set an expiry date for candidates at the end of each exam cycle. This is to ensure when we come to schedule the next exam, candidates from previous exams are not visible. Only candidates for the upcoming exam will be available and visible to schedule.

    This option to bulk retire candidates is being considered in our product.
    Please contact your Account Manager for more information.

  3. Ability to create enemy relationships in test forms with random rules

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

    This functionality is on our road map and we hope it will be solved when implementing the Linear Optimiser.
    Currently we do not have an estimate for when this will be available.

  4. SecureClient check on launch for blacklisted applications

    When the SecureClient launches we would like it to check which applications are already running and if and from an administrator defined black list are running, then refuse to launch.

    This would prevent any unauthorised third party applications from interfering with the SecureClient.

    We are implementing a Diagram Creator question type where yo can create flow diagrams. We believe this can meet your requirements, creating simple mind map questions.

    If you believe you need more detailed options we suggest you to contact your Account Manager.

    Thank you for your contribution.

  6. No of sections to complete and optional/compulsory setting on sections

    In order to ask candidates to answer eg '3 out of 5' sections. So sections are marked as optional or compulsory and then the number of sections/marks that must be completed in all is set. Is this something that would be possible to do and if so of use to other users?

  9. Additional search filters for the invigilator tab

    Could there be further search filters added to the Invigilate tab, in the format of a drop down that populates in tick boxes for us to select which centre or test we would like to view? This will be particularly useful for monitoring on the day of exams e.g. being able to view by multiple specific centres and exam/(s). Furthermore could there be a reminder/ notice of exactly what you have selected to view somewhere on the screen (ie FOP exam, Abu Dhabi, Riyadh and Qatar have been selected to view)

  11. Marked Metadata facility

    Marked Metadata is required to allow effective human marking. Without it the delivery of human marked questions and CBP will not work in R12
