At this stage, after testing and finalising your assessment in QMOD, if you haven’t already completed a registration form, then please ensure you do this. The Assessment team use the information provided in these forms to schedule your assessment and make it available to students.
- For Questionmark quizzes, formatives, computer marked assessments (CMAs) and class tests taking place outwith an exam diet, please complete and submit the Questionmark Scheduling Request for each assessment at least two weeks before it is due to take place.
- For Questionmark assessments and exams taking place during an official exam diet, please complete and submit the CTIL – Online Exam Request for every QMOD exam at least two weeks before it is due to take place.
Upon receipt of the scheduling request, the Assessment team will carry out a final check of the settings on your assessment (to ensure it matches the information provided in the request) before publishing the assessment. They will then import the required group of students to QMOD, schedule the assessment to be available to them at the requested date and time, check for any additional time requirements and apply these to any relevant schedules.
A link to QMOD will be added in your My Dundee module (in the requested location), along with information for students on how to access the assessment and where to find troubleshooting information.
Once an assessment is published, any edits to questions in QMOD will not display to students. If you notice a critical issue with a question, you can contact the Assessment team to request that a change is made and the assessment must then be republished.
Exams (Exam Diet)
Remote online exams
Upon receipt of the exam request, a Questionmark exam module will be created in My Dundee. The exam module will contain a link to QMOD, along with information for students on how to access the exam and where to find troubleshooting information. (Our My Dundee Exam Modules guide has further information on what these modules contain and how to set them up.)
The Assessment team will carry out a final check of the settings on your exam (to ensure it matches the information provided in the request) before publishing the assessment. They will then import the required group of students to QMOD, schedule the exam to be available to them at the requested date and time, check for any additional time requirements and apply these to any relevant schedules.
Once published, any changes to questions in QMOD will not display to students. If you notice a critical issue with a question, you can contact the Assessment team to request that a change is made and the exam republished.
Note: Remote QMOD exams will not be proctored or have lockdown browsers enabled.
On campus exams
If your Questionmark exam is to be taken in an IT Suite on campus due to a Professional, Statutory and Regulatory Bodies (PSRB) requirement, please contact CTIL for further guidance as soon as possible.
Note: For the academic year 2021/22, in-person on campus QMOD exams will not use exam accounts or have lockdown browsers enabled, they will be delivered using our remote online exams process via a Questionmark Exam Module in My Dundee.The Assessment team will continue to provide remote support for all Questionmark assessments and exams.
Communication with students
It is the responsibility of the Schools to communicate all relevant information in advance of any QMOD assessment or exam, for example:
- Where to access it (teaching module / exam module)
- The name and/or brief description of the assessment
- Format and type of assessment
- When the assessment will be available to students (e.g. start date/time and end date/time)
- Assessment time limit if applicable – this is the length of time students have to complete their assessment after pressing start (e.g. 30 minutes or 1 hour)
- The number of attempts the student has at the assessment (e.g. restricted to 1 attempt, or unlimited attempts)
- Number of questions and highlighting any particular scoring rules for individual questions (e.g. negative marking)
- You may also want to encourage students to use the practice assessment available to them, along with information on where to access help if they encounter any issues
Schools should ensure that their students are familiar with the tool, system or delivery platform to be used, particularly prior to undertaking a summative assessment or exam. It is recommended that opportunities for students to familiarise themselves with the relevant tool or system be provided through the provision of a formative assessment of a similar format, incorporating question types and content relevant to the specific module of study.
The Assessment team will ensure that a generic “Practice assessment” is made available to all students undertaking a Questionmark assessment. The practice assessment can be used by students to check that their device is suitable for undertaking their assessment, and also to familiarise themselves with Questionmark and the assessment process.
Once the assessment is live to students, the Assessment team will troubleshoot any Questionmark related issues they are having. You should direct your students to our Questionmark Troubleshooting guide or our Questionmark Troubleshooting form if they need to contact us.
Once the assessment end date/time is reached, the Assessment team will extract and securely share a results spreadsheet with the named individuals on the registration form. If you have indicated that you want to access the results yourself, you can view our Accessing Results in Questionmark guide.
