Submit a QuestionMark Perception exam for scheduling

Once you have created a computer-based exam in QM Perception you will wish to check it in a web browser and then make it available to students. You do this by submitting it to iSolutions who will check and correct any structural errors and provide in return a ‘preview’ web link which can be used by authors and peer reviewers to check the operation of the exam in a web browser. As part of this process, we also ensure that the exam is made available to the correct group of students at the right date, time and place.

Here is the web form we ask exam authors to use in submitting their assessments to iSolutions for checking and scheduling your test.

Here is a knowledge base article on the subject.
