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.

  3. Cohort grouping reports and filters

    The ability to group/filter by cohorts in Invigilation, Results and Assessment Audit. For high use Centres this is the biggest annoyance in not being able to find groups of candidates in reporting or invigilation easily

  4. 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.

  5. Show candidates the correct answer when reviewing sample / practice tests

    For our practice tests we would like candidates to get more information to help them understand what they got wrong. At the moment when candidates click on the question number they answered incorrectly (from the review screen) it takes them to the question but only highlights the answer they gave. It would be far more helpful if it also indicated what the correct answer would have been, allowing them to use the practice test formatively.

  6. Ability to remark questions after exam

    If it is found in Item Authoring that questions have the incorrect maximum mark or a question was ambigious and proving to be problematic for students. Can highlight amendment in red so viewers know it has been manually amended since completion of exam.

  7. Alert if student already in system but retired when importing in large numbers

    If importing spreadsheet of students there is no alert if a student hasn't been imported in and already in the system but retired. Even a pop up warning saying this student wasn't added in as is already in system. As then you have to go through your list and check individually to find the student who isn't there because numbers don't tally for example.

  8. 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.

  9. 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.

  11. Assessments within computer based projects

    It would be nice if there was an opton to include timed and marked assessments within a computer based project.

    Ideally these would be a section of the project which can only be accessed a specified number of times and provides an immiediate result summary during the project.

    The purpose of this would be to test specific knowledge as part of a project.

  12. Flag resits at set amount

    It would be nice if there was an option to set a flag or automatic email at a specific number of sittings on a specific exam i.e. on the 3rd result for a specific exam a flag appears on the candidate record and/or the system emails a specific person.

    This would allow more easy identification of exams being repeatedly re-sat and could be used to alert relevant people.

  14. 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…

  15. 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?

  17. 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.

  18. 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.

  19. 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.
