    • Question items within a Group should be able to be dynamically selected

      At the moment a group can be created within an assessment which contains a fixed number of selected items which on delivery will scroll as if one question. It would be really beneficial if those items could be selected using rules dynamically. Therefore a group would contain a number of rules. This would result in each candidate being presented with a scrolling assessment/'question' containing items selected dynamically. Significantly increases the usability of this feature.

      • For paper based tests: I like to choose the font and font size for the whole test.

        Right now you can upload a candidate and teacher cover when you create a paper based test. The font and font size of the cover page are not used through the whole test (the header and footer are).
        This means the cover pages are for example Arial 12pt and the questions are suddenly Calibri 11pt. Especially for paper based tests, it is recommended to print the whole test in Arial 12pt (the cover the needs for those candidates who are dyslexic.

        The wish is to add a final step when generating a paper based test where you can choose the…

        • Automaticly adding files to section tools

          When creating a TestForm in Test Creation and questions are chosen with items who have Source Material or Media with the setting to open as a pop-up, the specific item should be added to the section Tools by hand.
          For the most people this is difficult to use, because it's not clear which media they should add. This is why we now advise not to use pop-ups by Media and not use Source Material except pdf-files.
          In my opinion it should be more helpfull that Surpass automaticly adds the needed files to the section Tools.
          Surpass is able to generate…

            • 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.

              • 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?
