In the 'Edit Tags' menu you can add tags for learning outcomes, units, keywords and any custom tag groups as defined in Setup. These will help you identify and sort items when compiling tests in Test Creation. Feedback can also be categorised by learning outcomes, units and keywords - particularly useful for formative assessments to illustrate how candidates performed on particular areas within a test, and highlight areas that may need further work.
Creating Custom Tags
You can create custom tag groups in Surpass which allow you to add your own group titles amongst the default groups of 'Learning Outcomes', 'Units' and 'Keywords'. You will then be able to add tags into your custom groups.
Examples of Custom Tag Groups
When creating custom tag groups, you have complete freedom as to how you wish to name your group and which tags to include in them.
Custom Tag Group: Difficulty Rating
Tags: Foundation, Intermediate, Advanced
Creating a tag group for difficulty rating will allow you to include a set number of easy, medium and hard questions in a test - allowing for a diverse test which measures all levels of skill sets.
Custom Tag Group: Test Form Name
Tags: English Foundation, English (Set A), English (Set B)
You may wish to create a tag group which determines which test form the item will be included in.
Custom Tag Group: Additional Requirements
Tags: Visually Impaired, Multi-Language, Tablet Delivery
You may wish to create a tag group which allows item authors to tag questions which have specifically been created for certain situations. for example, the text size in a question has been increased for candidates with visual difficulties or questions are tagged to show they have been designed for tablet delivery or are questions with 2 language translations.
