Questionmark service changes and downtime – Summer 2019

The University’s online assessment platform, Questionmark, is being upgraded to version 6 and migrated to the cloud-based On Demand service.   This work is essential as our current version of Questionmark, Perception 5.7, will no longer be supported by the company after July 2019.
Following consultation with users, the change has been scheduled for the week commencing 29th July 2019 and it is likely that Questionmark will be unavailable throughout the week. This downtime will be confirmed once a trial migration has been completed (expected by Easter).

QMP service “at risk”, Thursday 12 April, 8 am – noon

IT Services will be moving the secondary Questionmark Perception server to an improved installation on Thursday 12 April, between 8 am and noon.

We do not expect this process to have a significant effect on the service, although there may be a few brief outages.

If you have any questions or concerns, please contact digital-education@bristol.ac.uk.
