The McIntyre Exam Centre

The McIntyre Exam Centre provides services for students with accommodation needs, as documented through the Paul Menton Centre for Students with Disabilities (PMC), for tests and exams scheduled in their courses. This facility, operated by Scheduling & Examinations Services (SES), provides year-round service in an environment designed to meet a range of PMC requirements.

Who can apply?

We invite applications from retired staff, members of the external community, and graduate students (as well as students who are in their fourth year of an undergraduate program), to help us meet the demand for invigilation services.

Remuneration and hours

Proctors are paid at the legislated Ontario minimum hourly wage. In the McIntyre Exam Centre, exams can be scheduled at any time of the day during the operational hours: Monday through Thursday 8:30 a.m. to 10:00 p.m., and Fridays 8:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.

Unless otherwise stated, Proctor shift start times are scheduled by the Exam Centre Coordinator, with possible start times of 8:30, 9:30, 1:00, 1:30, 5:00, 5:30. Shifts are generally 4.5 hours in duration. In all cases, punctuality is an absolute requirement.

Successful proctor applicants will be asked to identify shifts they can commit to working. While there is an attempt to schedule as many identified hours as possible, there is no guarantee that all submitted hours will be scheduled.

The following application provides information about the job duties of the position, and requires responses to indicate required job competencies, to assist us in selecting interview candidates.

When can I apply?

Proctors are hired as needed throughout the year for the McIntyre Exam Centre. Proctor applications are also reviewed within SES for other exams that are scheduled during the examination periods as listed in the University’s Academic calendars.

    Assist in the orderly administration of examinations including: recording attendance, enforcing examination regulations, distributing examination supplies, and collecting and reconciling examination papers.

    2. Communication skills
    Must be proficient in English comprehension and expression. Some PMC students may have compromised ability to either speak clearly or to comprehend oral conversations.

Failure to observe potential violations of Examination Rules and Procedures can compromise the integrity of the examinations process.

    4. Human Rights
    The University requires all Exam Centre employees to comply with its Human Rights Policies. These Policies affirm that “every member of the University community has a right to study, work and live in a safe environment free of discrimination and harassment”. Those who have supervisory authority over others, or who make or influence decisions regarding members of the University community, bear a particular responsibility in this regard.
    The grounds on which the University strives to protect against discrimination and harassment include race, ancestry, place of origin, colour, ethnic origin, citizenship, creed, political affiliation or belief, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, age, marital status, family status and disability/handicap within the meaning of the Ontario Human Rights Code.
    All interactions by Exam Centre employees with students, instructors and other employees must be consistent with these human rights principles.

    5. Occupational Health & Safety
    Carleton University is committed to providing a safe and healthy environment for its students, employees, and visitors to study and work. The responsibility for health and safety is identified in the Occupational Health and Safety Act and is outlined in greater detail in the Carleton University Health and Safety Management System. Every employee has a legal duty to inform themselves of any environmental health and safety rule, regulation, and statute which applies to the performance of their job and to conduct themselves in accordance with such rules, regulations, and statutes. Furthermore, every employee who supervises one or more employees and/or students shall ensure that their direct reports are both informed of any and all environmental health and safety rules which apply to the performance of their functions and, comply with such rules, regulations, and statutes. All employees have a duty to report unsafe or unhealthy conditions to their supervisors. Failure to be informed, to comply and/or to supervise may result in disciplinary action by the employer up to and including dismissal. Employees should also be aware that a person who contravenes or fails to comply with the health and safety laws of Ontario is guilty of an offence, and upon conviction may be liable to a fine, imprisonment, or payment of damage.
