Article summary

After reading this article you know about the role of a scheduler as well as an invigilator. 

You can do 3 things in the Delivering module of Cirrus:

  1. Schedule an exam
  2. Monitor ongoing exams (Invigilation)
  3. Schedule Review Sessions

1. Scheduling an exam

Before candidates can sit a test in Cirrus, this test needs to be scheduled. 

In this process, the scheduler will select an assessment, set a start and end date and time, and select a group of candidates.

The scheduler can also set up a pin code that is being used in conjunction with the test. This is a good way to prevent outsiders accessing the test. 

The pin code is normally released to the candidates by the invigilator.

Schedules can also be creating using our API's. This is convenient if you for example have a booking system where candidates can self-register and schedule their own assessment session.

2. Invigilation

During on ongoing exam, the invigilator can monitor the actual session. The invigilator is also able to interact with the candidates and view the logs of the candidates (how did a candidate navigate, how long did he/she spend on a question, did he/she have any issues etc.). 

Invigilators can perform actions like:

  • Pausing and resuming
  • Give extra time
  • Send messages to candidates
  • Print login details
  • Void attempts
  • If remote proctoring is used - view the recordings

Invigilation (British English) is the same as proctoring (US English).

The invigilation dashboard is very useful for monitor the exam session and interact with your candidates.

3. Scheduling a Review Session

Once the exam is taken and its results have been published, you can optionally schedule a review session with the candidate.

During this session the exam will be made visible to the candidate. Both teacher and candidate can sit together and discuss the outcome.
