  2. Allow absolute marking for extended matching question type

    We would like to have absolute marking for the extended matching question type. This is possible in CP but not IA. For example if we have three one to one matches with a mark of 1 each correct link scores 0.33 which we can't have. All three links have to be correct to score a mark.

  3. 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…

  6. Use Micro services and Docker container for CI/CD

    Surpass has very good potential in itself. Make sure we could create surpass as service (SAAS) application. We should concentrate only for New features and enhancement. i would suggest that we could use Microservice based architecture and containerise platform like Kubernetes and docker.

  9. Tasks - User cannot see who assigned them a task

    Where multiple users have permissions to assign and be assigned tasks, it would be beneficial if the user who is assigned a task knew who assigned the task to them. This would allow the user to ask any necessary questions, for example, if they believe the task was assigned to them incorrectly.

  11. Change or delete the prefix in section headers of downloaded test forms

    When Surpass generates a MS Word file, a prefix is automatically added to the headers that contain the section title. The prefix is 'chapter' in English, 'hoofdstuk' in Dutch (which means the same). Hoofdstuk implies that sections correspond to a chapter in a book, but that is not necessarily the case. It would be better to remove the prefix completely. If desirable users can add the text manually in the wizard.

  12. 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.

  14. Easy use of formative tests: send keycode by email to candidate

    A very simple but effective way to improve Surpass for real formative testing is to send the keycodes by email to the candidates.

    How?
    If you schedule a formative test, you only need to add the following:

    1. The maximum number of attempts to make the test (e.g. maximum 3 times).
    2. An email to the candidate with the keycode(s), time span you need to use those keycodes and the URL to start the test (so it is only for formative test by browser).

    All non used tests should be voided automatically after the scheduled end date.

  17. Allow for more characters in the "Select from List" item-type.

    The "Select from List" is great for a pick-the-right-sentence type of question but the 34 character limit is restricting.

  18. Changing Font for Pupils with Special Educational Needs/Access Arrangements

    Hi, we have a pupil who needs to use a minimum of font size 24 however we were unable to increase this for her during her test today. Is there any way that we can alter the font for one individual pupil?
    Kind regards, Natasha Garrett, Examinations Officer

  20. 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…
