Invigilation Training for Staff.

To prepare my staff for invigilating the Diploma Programme exams, each exam session I create an invigilation document for staff, based on IBO`s “The Conduct of Diploma Programme Examinations” for the year. This document can be seen below.

I go through the document with staff at a meeting, where I create a mock up exam room to help explain the process. In the meeting I go through the responsibilities of the invigilators as well as the procedures for setting up and running the exams. As Coordinator I set up the exam room and start and finish each exam. I have trained another teacher to do this in case I cannot be at the school on the day in case of an unforeseen circumstance such as illness. I also hold pre-exam sessions with the year 12 students to go through the exam regulations, exam stationary, timetable, rules in the exam room and the equipment needed for each exam.
