Please use the contact form below to request a Questionmark Perception exam to be scheduled on the assessment (high stakes) system.

Personal information

Your name, username and telephone number are used to create the ServiceLine ticket via this web form. In case your phone number isn’t already in our system we ask for that too.

Sometimes schools delegate the scheduling to a member of the administration. If we have a question about the assessment it would be useful to have the contact details of the author.

Exam information

Master CRN

Perception exams are now very secure. The links to each exam can now be freely distributed and do not have to be kept secret as each link is secured down to a person, date and time. We know who needs to sit the exam by the CRN (otherwise known as the Banner code).

If you don’t know the CRN paste in the Blackboard course ID.

If you have multiple CRNs (French, French and Oceanography) please include all the codes, even if you don’t use the Blackboard courses.

If a student is not in the CRN you give us, they will not be able to take the exam.

Dates and times

The day of the exam, start and end times. The start and end times are when we will unlock the exam so should be when students are allowed in to, and released from, the room. For example if students arrive at 9am for a 9:15 exam the start time should be 9am to allow them to log into the exam before being told to start.

Where is the exam in Authoring Manager

To schedule in Perception we need to navigate through Authoring Manager to find your exam. As administrators of the system we can see hundreds of exams and need your help to ensure we schedule the correct exam.

Best practice

In this section is a list of things we will check in your exam. To ensure we don’t adjust your exam to be the way we expect it, rather than the way you expect it, let us know if you have purposefully made any changes to best practice.
