Display issue – Questionmark scheduling in Internet Explorer

Staff using Internet Explorer 8 or 9 to schedule Questionmark assessments in the VLE will notice a display glitch in the ‘Schedule an Assessment page’, which makes it difficult to enter a schedule name and description.

We have identified and are testing a fix, and will update the blog when it’s resolved.

In the interim you are advised to use the Chrome or Firefox browsers to schedule assessments.

This issue does not impact on students taking the assessment in IE8, which will continue to work normally. Students should only take assessments in IE8, Firefox or Chrome.
