Surpass is the first choice of organisations that need a dependable solution for large-scale, secure formative and summative testing with the support of an outstanding and experienced customer service team.
Item authoring has never been easier. Surpass easily streamlines processes regardless of the size and location of the SME team.
Intelligent Task Management
Surpass enables proactive rather than reactive production, giving detailed information for planning and monitoring item production progress.
Surpass can be tailored to support a team’s workflow with assignable roles and permissions for item access and editing control. This gives you complete control of the whole authoring process.
Easy Item Import and Export
Surpass supports multiple approaches to adding and sharing items, including industry standard CSV, QTI, and API methods.
Surpass provides an impressive range of cutting-edge item types, which are all intuitive to set up with test presentation being configurable to your brand specification.
Ready-to-use Advanced Item Types
A wide range of standard and advanced items are available to use within Surpass, from Multiple Choice questions to more sophisticated item types such as Voice Capture, Spreadsheet, and File Attach.
Clean and focused content presentation
Surpass provides a flexible approach to content presentation, including options to brand tests, control the layout of the candidate experience, and group items into sets.
Media rich content including images and videos
Our diagram creation tool and award-winning High-Fidelity Image Viewer allow you to make the most of digital testing with rich audiovisual media.
Professional item development doesn’t have to be expensive. By reducing costs associated with item production and making items work harder in both summative and formative delivery, you can improve on the return of investment in item development. Surpass comes complete with tools and features to reduce production costs and measure test effectiveness, ensuring the best possible ROI.
Fixed form testing
A traditional approach to test assembly, fixed form testing is ideal for organisations starting out with a small item bank or delivering session-based assessments.
LOFT and adaptive delivery
Surpass supports modern approaches to test delivery, including linear-on-the-fly (LOFT) and adaptive testing. This is perfect for providing performance data for all candidates, not just those in the middle range.
Optimised form generation
The Surpass Linear Optimiser enhances LOFT test form assembly, ensuring all items are used equally and the test structure is balanced.
Data analytics and reporting
Surpass provides a range of psychometric reports and item statistics including Classical Test Theory (CTT) and Item Response Theory (IRT) to help you ensure all tests are reliable, defensible, fair, and cost-effective.
Trusted by the world’s most respected awarding organisations, test publishers, institutions, and national government bodies, Surpass provides the tools to quickly and efficiently build and validate tests ready for delivery across multiple channels.
Built on blueprint specifications
Surpass provides the tools to generate tests with the requirements found from your task analysis.
