  1. 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.

  4. 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.

  5. 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…

  6. 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.

  8. An option to filter Users by Role

    We are currently able to create multiple roles but have no ability to track these within Surpass. There is no filter to show who is linked to a specific role and allow you to find and change them if required.

    Amendments to a Role are restricted if this is linked to a User so finding them easily would be a benefit.

  9. 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.

  10. 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.

  11. In Item Authoring there is no filter for Item Type

    Hi Craig,

    Sorry for the late response to your idea. This would be a simple UI improvement therefore the design team have moved this to their backlog.

    Thanks

  13. 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.

  15. More flexibility allowed in the customisation of created roles.

    Within the role creation feature, it would be helpful if you could specify what areas within an item a user role is able to access. I've hit a wall recently trying to allow a group of reviewers to review and edit an item as an assigned task, without being able to fully access our media library.

  16. Ability to sort items alphanumerically

    It would be beneficial to be able to sort item names alphanumerically. At the moment the items are sorted by creation date (I believe) but for people using naming conventions involving letters and numbers, it would be more efficient to be able to sort them in ascending and descending order.

  17. 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.

  20. 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
