The Dean has authorized us to identify up to 3 additional (outside of your course) proctors for exams as needed such that there can be one proctor for each room in the iTLC. In order to coordinate this effort and manage the exam, the course must supply at least one proctor familiar with the course and process. This person could be a faculty or staff member who would instruct the students on basic procedure and to be available to answer process questions.
The additional proctors come from our Standardized Patient program. Their purpose is to circulate around the space periodically, observing student behavior to identify any who are not in BBL or who seem to be utilizing their laptops out of accordance with test procedures. IT has created some materials to help them become familiar with the look of BBL exams, and we are offering them basic instruction in their proctoring role.
Anyone wishing to use this SP proctor service should please contact Sue Collette directly noting the course name, number of proctors requested, date and time required as well as the location of the exam and the ‘chief’ course proctor’s name. Please allow one week’s notice whenever possible to facilitate scheduling.
The list below contains information that may be pertinent to your courses & clerkships.
To reserve space on campus at the University of Massachusetts Medical School, you must request it through the Room Reservations department and receive approval. Room Reservations holds regular trainings on requesting space and correctly utilizing their software application, ResourceScheduler.
Click the link above to review when the next trainings are happening on campus.
For a review of protocol or as reference for any questions you may have regarding the room requesting process, please reference the ResourceScheduler training manual.
Not all administrators will have access to request the iTLC space on their ResourceScheduler views / permissions. If you are unable to view or request the iTLC from your account, please contact Carly Eressy. In your e-mail please include the dates, times, room setup, and any A/V equipment needs you are requesting. Note that all sessions scheduled in the iTLC are subject to be bumped based on any last minute changes to exam scheduling.
