Overview of Questionmark Assessment Process

UoD Questionmark Process

How to get started

Once you have decided you want to deliver a Questionmark OnDemand (QMOD) assessment to your students, you need to make the Assessment team aware of this. If you are at a very early stage and don’t have all of the information about when your assessment will take place, then you can e-mail the team with the rough information you have.

Whether you are planning to use Questionmark for a quiz, formative, computer marked assessment (CMA), class test or exam (within or outwith an official exam diet), please complete and submit the Questionmark Request Form for each assessment at least two weeks before it is due to take place. 

Will you create the assessment in QMOD yourself?

Yes I want to create the assessment in QMOD myself
No, I want the Assessment Team to create the assessment in QMOD

Follow the steps below to enable the Assessment Team to create your assessment in QMOD:

  1. Securely share a Word copy of your assessment at least three weeks before it is due to take place
  2. Assessment Team will create the questions and assessment in QMOD
  3. Fully test your assessment

How is the assessment delivered to students?

Questionmark coursework assessments which are not invigilated (including quizzes, formatives, CMAs and class tests) will be delivered to students through a link in the My Dundee teaching module.

A My Dundee Exam Module will be created for any Questionmark exams which are being delivered remotely (not invigilated) and are timetabled in an official exam diet.

Students will access invigilated Questionmark assessments on a University managed device using dedicated (restricted) exam accounts. Information sheets for students on how to get started with a Questionmark assessment will be shared with module leaders prior to the date of an invigilated assessment.

See our QMOD Assessment is completed, what is next? guide for full information on how the Assessment team will publish and schedule your assessment to students.

Frequently Asked Questions

How do I ensure students get any additional time they are entitled to (disability adjustments) in a timed Questionmark assessment?

If you indicate on your request form that students with a recommendation for additional time should receive it for a timed assessment, the Assessment team will check eVision for up-to-date student information prior to scheduling the assessment.

If you (as module leader) are notified of an update to any disability adjustments after the assessment is scheduled and available to students, you will need to notify the Assessment team in order for them to update the relevant schedules.

Does Questionmark autosave student answers during an assessment?

Student answers are automatically saved every minute during an assessment, so if they encounter any issues (e.g. laptop crashing) they are advised to re-enter the exam as quickly as possible by clicking on the Resume button (rather than the normal Start button).

Where can I direct students to for help with completing a Questionmark assessment?

We have prepared a Questionmark Troubleshooting guide for students which runs through any issues a student may encounter in the run up to an assessment, starting an assessment, or during an assessment.

We also have guides available for students on Locating Your Questionmark Assessment and Taking Your Questionmark Assessment.
