BEING A MEMBER OF AN EXAM BOARD

Date and time: Tuesday 6 March 2018, 10.00-11.00am

Venue: Council House, Committee Room 2

Facilitator: Clive Matthews, ADTP, Ian Dewing, NBS

How to book: t.york@uea.ac.uk or book online

 

What is the role of an Exam Board member, what responsibilities do they have, and how can they assist in making equitable and consistent academic judgements?  Led by experienced Chairs of Exam Boards, senior LTS administrators and the Academic Director of Taught Programmes, we explore the regulations, Exam Board practice (e.g. how extenuating circumstances are considered and how ‘discretion’ is exercised), and case histories to illustrate how academic appeals are dealt with.  There is guidance on the role of the Chair and on developing a better understanding of being a member (or Chair) of a Board. The workshop is collaborative, and supported by a Blackboard site. The workshop is ‘flipped’, with attendees able to engage with materials online to focus on discussion on the day.  We include the use of ‘discretion’ by Exam Boards (i.e. in relation to ECs and candidates close to classification boundaries).

It focuses on developing a better understanding of the challenges and risks and there is a focus on groupwork and discussion.

How are cases detected and investigated? What use is made of text-matching software? What happens before, during and after a plagiarism meeting?
