The invigilator will monitor you via the webcam and is also able to monitor audio feedback to ensure that there are not verbal answers or communication from any outside source.
Once the exam has started the invigilator will not contact you unless they note any infringements/breach of exam regulations. Issues could be such things as (but not limited to):
- A phone rings
- A person enters the room
- Suspicious behaviour such as eye movement, head movement, hand movement, talking or mouthing or other indications of external communication
- There is excessive noise outside the room
- Accessing any unauthorised material such as notes or course books
The type and severity of the issue will be considered by the invigilator in order that they can then identify and specify the action that needs to be taken by talking to you or sending an instant message. This could be to continue with the exam, pause the exam or terminate the exam sitting.
If the invigilator is required to log an infringement, they will click on the Log Infringement button and the appropriate, ‘Take Action’ button. Subsequently, this will automatically send a message to you saying that an exception has occurred. You must click OK in order to resume your exam.
Where an infringement/breach of exam regulations has taken place, the remote invigilator will provide a copy of the recording to CIPS with details of the location/time of the event.
