for the rest of the answer books and spare

exam materials to be returned to the

the scripts and spare exam materials whilst

waiting for the remaining scripts to be

returned.

At the end of the ExaminationInvigilators should:

CLEAR THE VENUE

All exam materials / spare stationery and scripts should be collected and returned to the Student Life Office, together with exam slips and candidate lists


Separate room invigilation

SEPARATE ROOM INVIGILATION

  • If the student requires a computer, the exam will take place in a computer lab. The computers to be used have been made stand alone by the IS Team so that the students cannot gain access to the web or any other accounts they may have set up. Please use only the computers marked to be used, these are spread around the room to minimise the disruption as there maybe more than one student in a venue. There will be a disk enclosed in the envelope for the students to save their work on at the end of the exam. The disk and exam script and any spare exam material should be returned to the Faculty Office at the end of the exam. Any problems with the Computers or the Labs should be reported to the Helpdesk which is located in Room C0.17 on the ground floor of JD Central. Please let the Helpdesk know when the exam has finished so that they can lock the room.


Separate room invigilation1

SEPARATE ROOM INVIGILATION

  • If a student requires an amanuensis these will have been booked and should be at the venue 15 minutes prior to the start of the exam. The amanuenses supplied by the University are specially trained and should all know what is required of them.

  • If a reader is required then the person invigilating the exam becomes the reader. This means that the student may need the questions read to them clearly and slowly to help with clarification. A reader is not there to make notes for the student just to read aloud the exam questions if required.


Separate room invigilation2

SEPARATE ROOM INVIGILATION

  • If there is a student who requires a clock stopped rest break: The suggestion is that you ask them to indicate to you when they need the break (usually 10 minutes per hour) and make a note of the time and add the relevant time at the end of the exam rather than actually stopping the clock. There maybe more than one student in a venue who requires rest breaks and they may take them at different times, so an accurate note of the time each candidate takes as a break should be recorded and added on at the end. The student/s may not require all the extra time or rest breaks that they are entitled to.


Separate room invigilation3

SEPARATE ROOM INVIGILATION

  • The exam papers and all exam materials are collected from the Faculty Office approx 15 minutes prior to the exam.

  • The student’s exam will be packed in an envelope which will clearly state what the requirements are and the extra time entitlement.


Separate room invigilation4

SEPARATE ROOM INVIGILATION

  • Even though there maybe up to five students in each venue there will be only one invigilator for each venue. This is so the students do not feel too threatened or nervous. It is therefore suggested that the Invigilator takes a mobile phone with them so that if they require any assistance or a tea break or a toilet break they can contact the Faculty Office on 0161 247 1775 and a member of staff can be sent to cover for them for a short while.
