The Audit screen contains records for all tests delivered in your Surpass instance. From the Audit screen, you can view detailed reports about the test’s history and flag scripts for re-marking if necessary.
This article explains what the Audit screen is, how to navigate it, and how to use its features.

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.
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:
|Subject||Displays the name of the test’s parent subject.|
|Test Name||Displays the name of the test.|
|Test Form Reference||Displays the test form’s unique reference code.|
|Keycode||Displays the keycode the candidate used to access the test.|
|Last Name||Displays the candidate’s surname.|
|First Name||Displays the candidate’s forename.|
|Candidate Ref.||Displays the candidate’s unique reference code.|
|Duration||Displays the test’s duration.|
|Original Result||Displays the result the candidate originally achieved on the test. This is presented as a grade (for example, “Pass”), rather than a raw mark.|
|Adjusted Result||Displays the result the candidate received after any grade boundaries were changed.|
IMPORTANT: This is obsolete functionality and will be removed in a future release of Surpass.
|Percent||Displays the percentage score achieved by the candidate.|
|Mark||Displays the raw score achieved by the candidate.|
|Centre Name||Displays the name of the centre the test was sat at.|
|Centre Code||Displays the unique reference of the centre the test was sat at.|
|Completed||Displays the date on which the candidate submitted their script.|
|Shown to Centre||Indicates whether the test has been made available to centre-level users.|
Indicates where in the re-marking process the script is. The following states are available:
For more information, read Flagging a script for re-marking in the Audit screen.
|Exported||Indicates whether the result has been retrieved via the Result API.|
|Language||Displays the language the test was taken in.|
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.
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.
For Warehouse State, Original Result, and Re-mark Status use the checkboxes to choose which of the preset options you want to include in your filter. Select Apply to save the filter. Select Clear to reset the filter.
For Subject, use the alphabetical tabs to find specific subjects and select or clear them to include or exclude them in the filter, respectively. Use Select/Deselect All to add or remove all subjects. Select Apply to save the filter. Select Clear to reset the filter.
For Test Name, Test Form Reference, Keycode, Last Name, First Name, Candidate Ref., Centre Name, and Centre Code, use the text field to filter column contents based on a specified string. Select Clear to reset the filter.
For Duration, use the fields to filter either by an exact duration value or all values that fall within a specified range. Select Apply to save the filter. Select Clear or Filter off to reset the filter.
For Completed, you can either select Today to only display test sessions that match the current date or use the date picker to choose a date range. Select Apply to save the filter. Select Clear or Filter off to reset the filter.
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.
|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|
|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.|
Downloads a package of the script containing all test content and candidate’s responses in a read-only format. This can be distributed externally to Surpass.
TIP: For more information on packaged scripts, read Packaging a script in the Moderate screen.
