Casual exam positions

We employ casual exam staff at our Wollongong campus to support us with all aspects related to the administration of centrally conducted student exams.

  1. ON CAMPUS TEAM: Supporting students in face-to-face exams. Setting up, monitoring and setting down of exam sessions in accordance with procedure, keeping exam materials secure, reporting instances of misconduct and escorting students during the exam as required. 
  2. SUPPORT TEAM: Supporting students in online exams. Answering calls from students while they are taking their online exams, supporting them with general advice on technical and administrative matters and escalating calls when required. 
  3. ONLINE TEAM: Reviewing reports from online exams. Reviewing reports produced from recordings of online exams, performing identity checks, focusing on flagged irregular activity and assessing whether that activity could be academic misconduct.
