Setting up a subject group

In Surpass, a subject is where you create and manage items for use in tests. Subjects can hold folders and sub-folders of items, allowing for flexible organisation of your test content. You can also upload media to your subject’s media library for use in its items. A subject is associated with at least one centre. Any tests created in the subject can be scheduled at the associated centre(s).

Setting up a subject group lets you include items from multiple subjects when creating a test. You can set up subject groups in the Subjects screen of Setup.

This article explains how to set up a subject group in the Subjects screen in Setup.
