About the Centres screen in Setup

In Surpass, a “centre” is a virtual space in which tests are created by users and delivered to candidates. All items, users, candidates, subjects, tests, and test forms are associated with a particular parent centre. A Surpass centre may be linked to a physical location like a school or workplace or it can be a purely digital environment.

Centres are created and managed in the Centres screen in the Setup section of Surpass.

This article explains how to navigate the Centres screen in Setup and use its features.
