Our closest match to your question:

What is an exam invigilator?

An invigilator is a person authorized by Athabasca University to oversee the writing of an examination by an AU student.

Students are required to write an exam with an established AU-approved invigilator or at an AU-approved invigilation centre if they live within 100 km of that invigilator or invigilation centre.

Students who live more than 100 km away from an examination centre may write their exams closer to home, provided they arrange for an invigilator.

More information on exam invigilation and guidelines for choosing an invigilator can be found on the Office of the Registrar’s Exam Invigilation Network webpage and in Section 7.4 of the Calendar.
