Educating Examiners

Educating Examiners


On Monday 17th April, students in Education I sat a multiple choice test. There are two Education I classes, I attend the first session and on the morning of the test we were instructed Not to take a copy of the questions out of the room as the afternoon class would be given the same exam. We would, however, be given a copy of the questions later on. Today the lecturer, Professor Fieldhouse, informed us that 2 copies of the exam paper had been taken from the room and a student had told him that a few members of the afternoon class had been seen with the exam questions before the second exam was held. As a result, this exam will not be taken into consideration for the granting of terms, at the next test students won't be allowed to take bags, papers etc. into the exam room, and furthermore staff will stand at the doors to check nothing is taken out of the room at the conclusion of the test. I'd like to express my contempt for the actions of the student or students who took the exam papers, and to say I think they are infantile, untrustworthy stupid twits.
