Hi,

A student using Dragon would have to be in a separate room so can they use their own machine but the invigilator would be able to check for any mis-use?

We currently get the student to train one of our machines and its kept for their use throughout their degree; however, with a massive influx this year, Iím not sure what we will do.

Subject: Re: Use of Dragon in exams



Hello,

Currently we (University of York) allow a handful of student to use Dragon in exams. This is on university machines with our own software licence. Students must submit their Dragon profile on a USB memory stick to our IT team prior to exam season so that it can be check for viruses and macros/text. The student also brings their own headset.

Because of demand we are looking towards allowing students to use their own machines simply because of the strain on time and resources otherwise.

Apologies for cross posting:



We are currently reviewing the use of Dragon software as a reasonable adjustment in exams and would like to know what other support services at other HEIs do?

Specifically, could you let me know if other institutions allow students to use their own computers and dragon software for their exams or if the institution sets up a computer with dragon and either arranges for the voice file to be transferred or asks the student to train the university software/ computer and sets up a new voice profile?



We would be very grateful for your responses.



Many thanks
