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. Candidate Search Function

    I'm on the "#Setup/Candidates" page and at the moment it appears one can only search for candidates using the "Search by Ref" box. It would be very useful to have the ability to search by using First and Last names as well.

  2. Ability to highlight question text

    Hello,

    I am just sat in a training session and have been shown the manual marking facility and I was wondering if it would be possible to introduce the ability for candidates to highlight part of the question text as they sit the exam or maybe put crosses and ticks next to answers that the think are right or wrong.

  3. Warning message when deleting Live items - Item Authoring

    Add a warning message when deleting any item set to Live. Or prevent any item at a Live status being deleted (forcing a user to change the status first).
    This will make it clear to users that there may be implications for live tests when deleting items.

  4. Delete candidates

    It would be good if you cold delete a candidate once they have been uploaded. I have tried retiring candidates but they still appear in the candidate list. It would be good to be able to delete them completely or when they are retired you can filter candidates so that the candidate that are retired do not appear.

    Hi Romana,

    The ability to filter off retired candidates is now supported in your version of Surpass. We’ve made this the default view, let me know if this works as requested.

    Thanks

  5. Can it be possible to upload more than 100 candidates

    Some of the test centres we will be using overseas will have more than 100 candidates in attendance. Therefore please can we upload more than 100 candidates when setting up an exam.

    Hi Romana,

    The bulk scheduling function within the ‘Scheduling’ screen allows users to quickly schedule up to 1000 candidates for a test.

    Does this meet your requirement?

    Thanks

    From Release 1.3, the height of the textbox will auto extend to display all authored content.

  7. Testing status for QA purposes

    Situation:

    An existing test has 3 test forms. All tests / test forms are live.

    Centres can schedule.

    Test forms are done through secure client.
    Learners will be assigned one of the test forms (automatic selection and randomisation of test forms).

    I want to add a fourth test form. How can I QA the new test form without the risk of a centre/learner accidentally being assigned the new test form under automatic selection/randomisation? In order to schedule the test and test it through the secure client, I have to make the test form live. Could there be another status for…

  8. Disc (Save) Icon in Tree Structure when selected should allow the user to save the item.

    When using Surpass, when I make change I see a save icon appear next to the item. Instinctively, as a user, I click this icon thinking its a save button, however its not its just a reminder.

    Can you make it that clicking on this item saves the item?

    The Disc (Save) Icon has now been removed and replaced with a pencil icon so that you know which item you are editing.

  9. Have a option to add text after tables.

    There is normally text after a table and before an input area.
    Would this be possible to add.

    Thanks

  10. Change subject group for an Exam

    Every exam is made for a subject or a subjectgroup. We use subjectgroups because it is an exception that an exam only has questions from one and the same subject.
    Sometime the structure of education changes. Then the same exams are needed in a different subjectgroup. Questions could be moved. It is possible to clone exams into a different subjectgroup, . But this workaround is so difficult, that it's a lot of work and in a lot of cases the workaround doesn't really work.
    Why not make it possible to change easily the subject or subjectgroup for the exam.

  11. Add multiple response question types to the 'download printable test' function

    We want to use the 'download printable test' function in Test Wizard but cannot because multiple-response question types are unsupported. Please could you consider adding this to the functionality, so we are able to make better use of the Test Wizard option?

  13. Increase range of file types and sizes to support candidate evidence

    Candidates currently use a variety of social media options, these have to be exported and in many cases cut into multiple versions to allow upload.

    The file size of 20MB does not support even standard jpg.sizes

    Hello,

    This feature already exists within Surpass. To do this you can allow upload of different file types and file sizes through the manual option in File Attach question type.

    Thanks

  14. Give users the ability to configure timer pop-ups.

    It could be beneficial to have the ability to customise time remaining notifications rather than just having the 3 default times (30,15 and 5 minutes)

    Regelmatig stopt Surpass ermee als ik een toets maak. Dan lijkt het of ie vastloopt. En dan ben ik alle vragen kwijt en kan ik opnieuw beginnen. Maak het makkelijker met een tussentijdse opslaanmogelijkheid.

    From Release 1.5, the Item Production Report will allow you to run a report on all items within that Subject. You will also be able to filter by Items not in a folder and sub folders.

  18. Seaching within subject while Itemauthoring - searching the subject itemtree

    In order to maintain your subject items it would be very useful to be able to easilly search all items within a subject. Searching could be by learningoutcome, unit, keywords or item-text.

  19. no restriction on the number of characters in an answer

    This will cause us big issues if we cant enter more than a set number of characters into a list question as possible answers as this was the proposed solution to issues with the EMQs. Please can this limit be removed or extended
