  1. Improving the comment button during tests and candidate reviews

    While taking a test or candidate review candidates have the possibility to use the comment button. We were happy with this possibility. But we don’t use it often, because the comments candidates make, are not easy to find. You have to click on each question to see if there a comment. This is very time consuming. Is it possible to make the comments more accessible? For example by a csv-export.

    Another issue is that the test is not editable by the test wizard anymore if you use this function. The reason for this is that you have to edit the…

      • Reporting Area

        Reporting Area - presentation of additional item and paper level information

        In addition to the information that can be found in the reporting area, we would also welcome the following presentation of statistics:

        • Item level – Average Facility Value i.e. item performance over the number of outings that it has had

        • Paper level – Mean, Median and Mode marks

        Currently the item level information needs to be obtained by comparing the test creation screen to the item screen and the paper level information through the raw data Excel export. It would be great to have all of this…

            • Export from Results Page

              It would be very useful to be able to Export Results from the "/#TestAdministration/Results" page. At the moment all you can do is print this data.

                    • 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
