exam invigilation at the university of warwick
Exam invigilation at the University of Warwick
  • The University’s Exams Office arranges eight formal exam sessions each academic year, containing both Postgraduate and Undergraduate exams.
  • Each exam session is managed by a Senior Invigilator (a member of University staff) along with a team of support invigilators (doctoralstudents and members of University staff from all departments).
  • Reminder of the definition of ‘to invigilate’ = to supervise, to monitor.
three main types of invigilation
Three main types of invigilation
  • Main hall. These are regular exam sessions in big venues around campus involving large numbers of students. Many different exam papers may be hosted in the same venue at the same time.
  • In department. These are exams for students who have permission to take their exams in a smaller venue, usually because they are allowed extra time or the use of a computer because of injury or different learning needs (e.g. dyslexia).
  • Chaperone. Where students have a clash of exams, they may be permitted to take one exam at a different time and will be chaperoned (accompanied) by an invigilator.

for information
For information:
  • The University takes exam invigilation very seriously, complying with national quality standards.
  • All invigilators are asked:
    • to remain alert throughout each exam; move around, look closely, report anything suspicious
    • not to use their mobile phones or chat amongst themselves inside the exam hall.
    • to attend at the arrival time given.
in conclusion
In conclusion:
  • It is recommended that doctoral students undertake exam invigilation during their time at Warwick, particularly as a professional development opportunity, to complement other academic work undertaken (i.e. tutoring, marking).
  • There is a small payment available for each exam session invigilated (£28 per session in 2012/13).
