Getting started with Questionmark

If you are new to Questionmark, here are the steps you will need to take to get started

  1. New user account: Contact the Digital Education Office to request an account. You will be sent a form to complete with your details and the type of role you need on the system. You will be given the role of UoB Local Administrator. This role gives staff permissions to develop questions and assessments, manage users and run reports. UoB local adminstrators are responsible for managing users on the system, this involves creating and deleting users, setting up and deleting schedules. 
  2. New Folders: If you or your School are completely new to Questionmark you will need to decide the name of your Topic/Assessment folders where your questions and assessment will be saved as well as the name of your groups (s) where you will add your students. It is recommended to use a Unit/Programme identifier rather than generic names (e.g. First Year) and avoid Group names such as 'extra time'. Please see the list of special characters which should not be used in Questionmark before creating your groups. 
  3. Existing Folders: If you are taking over from another member of staff or joining a team who already use Questionmark you need to tell us the name of the Topic and Assessment folders and the Group (s) you need access to.
