About the Audit grid

The Audit grid lists all historical scripts you have access to. Each row is dedicated to a single candidate script. Refer to the following table for information on each column.

Column Description
Warehouse State

Displays the current state of the script. When a script is submitted by the candidate and fully marked and moderated, it is stored in the Surpass warehouse. The available warehouse states are:

  • Warehoused – The script is stored in the Surpass warehouse.
  • Awaiting Export to SecureMarker – SecureMarker is waiting to receive the candidate’s script.
  • Exported to SecureMarker – SecureMarker has successfully received the candidate’s script.
  • Result Pending from SecureMarker – Surpass is waiting to receive marking information from SecureMarker.
  • Unable to Export to SecureMarker – There has been an issue with the candidate’s script. Please contact support@surpass.com.
  • Marked Externally – The candidate’s script has been exported from Surpass to be marked in an external app. The script will not return to Surpass.

Re-mark Status

Indicates where in the re-marking process the script is. The following states are available:

  • None – Re-marking has not been requested for this script.
  • Requested – The script has been flagged for re-marking and is awaiting attention in the Re-mark screen.
  • Re-marked – The script has been re-marked and has returned to the Audit screen.

Finding a script

By default, the Audit grid displays all historical scripts you have access to, ordered by most recently submitted. You can filter and sort to reorganise the Audit grid.

Filtering scripts

Select the expander () on a column header to open a contextual filter menu. Columns with filters applied are indicated by the filter icon: . You can combine filters across multiple columns.

Sorting scripts

Select a column header to sort the cell data alphabetically or numerically.

The arrow icon on the column header represents whether the information in the column is sorted in ascending () or descending () order. You can toggle between ascending or descending order by selecting the column header.

Actions on the Audit screen

There are many actions you can take on the Audit screen. Refer to the following table for more information on each option.

Setting Description
Export to CSV

Exports candidate results data to a spreadsheet. 

The export obeys whatever search or filter settings you have applied. For example, if you have set up the Audit grid to only show candidates that have passed, only those results will be exported to the spreadsheet.

Show to Centre Allows users in the Results screen to view candidate responses.
Hide From Centre Prevents users in the Results screen from viewing candidate responses.
Flag for Re-Mark Sends the selected script to the Re-marking screen, where it will be marked again. 
Cancel Re-Mark Abandons the re-marking process for the selected script.
Edit Grade Boundaries
NOTE: This is obsolete functionality and will be removed in a future release of Surpass. You can edit grade boundaries in the Moderate screen. For more information, read  Editing grade boundaries in the Moderate screen.
Audit Report Open the script’s audit report. For more information, read Viewing an audit report in the Audit screen.
View Responses Opens the candidate’s script, allowing to view their responses to each item in the test. 
Quintile Analysis Opens a report for any Multiple Choice items in the test with responses presented against five performance-based brackets of candidates (or quintiles). Correct answers are indicated by an asterisk (*). Quintile 1 contains the highest performing candidates and Quintile 5 contains the lowest performing candidates. 
Question Summary Opens a summary report for all items in the test, including each item’s ID, name, P value, and Discrimination Index
