There are three different types of invigilators at LSE:
These roles assist the Senior Invigilator by remaining alert to candidates’ needs and possible instances of academic misconduct. Other duties can include liaison with the Exams Team, distribution of materials and escorting students around the building.
Senior Invigilators co-ordinate the exam rooms and the team of Assistant Invigilators assigned to that room. They are responsible for the smooth operation of the exam, and in particular liaison with the Exams Team. Senior Invigilators ensure that candidates are given the correct materials and that an accurate register is taken. Senior Invigilators are also responsible for logging all activity within the exam room and, if needed, completing Alleged Academic Misconduct Report Forms.
Individual Exam Adjustment Invigilators
Individual Exam Adjustment (IEA) Invigilators work in rooms for students who have been granted IEAs. IEAs may include the use of a computer, rest-breaks, extra time, special furniture, a scribe and/or a reader. IEA invigilators are responsible for administering these adjustments alongside remaining alert to candidates' needs and possible instances of academic misconduct.
