All invigilators in tests and exams should be aware of examination room procedures and be vigilant for questionable behaviour (e.g. the moving of desks, extra papers, reaching into pockets, whispering or speaking to others, holding up of the exam paper, taking of photographs) and unauthorized aids (e.g. extra notes or study sheets, papers tucked into pencil or calculator cases, ear buds and cell phones and other electronic devices), and should examine washroom facilities carefully for unauthorized material. To the best of their ability, invigilators are responsible for maintaining the integrity of the examination and providing a quiet environment for students who are writing.

Active invigilation is strongly encouraged: this means circulating regularly throughout the room. Should a problem arise, invigilators should follow Faculty policies on documenting what has been observed.
