10. Administrator - Adding Invigilators


To invigilate is to control an exam and ensure that the external provider’s rules are being adhered to whilst the users are undergoing the online tests.

Administrators have access rights to invigilate and can do this using their Administrator logins; therefore, creating an Invigilator group is optional and is not required.  However, if a user is required just to invigilate and not administrate in the testing system, they can be created in ATLAS Cloud as an Invigilator.  Invigilators only have Read access to the system as their primary role is to log students on to take the tests, not administrate them.
