Getting started with Questionmark

What's new in Questionmark V6 

Questionmark On demand provides some new functionality for accessing the system, developing content and delivering assessments. If you want to find out more visit the Questionmark upgrade Summer 2019 for more information and/or book one of the staff development sessions listed at the bottom of this page.  

If you are new to Questionmark, here are the steps you will need to take to get started

1. New user account: Contact the Digital Education Office to request an account. You will be sent a form to complete with your details and the type of role you need on the system. Below is a list of roles and associated permissions.

a. UoB Local Administrator. This role gives staff permissions to develop questions and assessments, manage users and run reports. UoB local adminstrators are responsible for managing users on the system, this involves creating and deleting users, setting up and deleting schedules.

b. UoB Assessment Author. This is a role which gives staff permissions to develop questions and assessments only.

c. UoB Scheduler.This role gives staff permission to schedule assessments only.

2. New Folders: If you or your School are completely new to Questionmark you will need to decide the name of your Topic/Assessment folders where your questions and assessment will be saved as well as the name of your groups (s) where you will add your students. It is recommended to use a Unit/Programme identifier rather than generic names (e.g. First Year) and avoid Group names such as 'extra time'. Please see the list of special characters which should not be used in Questionmark before creating your groups. 

3. Existing Folders: If you are taking over from another member of staff or joining a team who already use Questionmark you need to tell us the name of the Topic and Assessment folders and the Group (s) you need access to.
