We had a case of impersonation in an exam a couple of years ago - 2
students swapped seats deliberately.  The students would probably have
got away with it except for the fact that I had been "tipped off" by
other students that these particular students were prone to cheating,
and also that the student that sat the exam was female, and the student
who should have sat the exam was male!
 

We do require signatures on attendance cards, and also have the right to
ask for ID if we wish.  The largest room we use for exams has cctv for
security purposes anyway, so if there were ever a query, I suppose we
could use that.

In a previous employment, our invigilation policy was to ask for another
piece of ID should the student not present his or her student card.  It
was rare to find a student without a bank card, for example.  However, I
considered it a failing of that system that a signature was not recorded
on the exam attendance slip - a signature would have been a mechanism to
allow post-exam verification, if necessary.  This might be simpler than,
say handwriting analysis.  I suppose in modern times, a digital camera
could be used to take a panoramic shot of the candidates, and retrieved
if there's any dispute.  I'll not go into the data protection issues
with regards to that now!
Cheers,
Jason

 Hi Gill
Glamorgan, probably in common with many institutions, requires students
to place their photo ID/enrolment cards on the examination desk and if
it's not done the invigilators have the right to ask the student to
leave.  However - big 'however' - understandably, it requires a stout
heart to do this and cause the distress to the student!  Starting with
this summer's main examinations we are going to be using
external/appointed invigilators and this is going to be raised in their
training.  I've also suggested to our exams office that it may be simple
enough, as extra security, for the tiny minority of scripts to be
annotated 'Photo ID not presented' and then leave it to the marker to
investigate should he/she have concerns over that piece of work.

Hope this helps.

Dear list members,
One of our Regional Support Centre colleagues contacted us recently with
a query regarding impersonation. She wondered if we had any experience
of what institutions were doing with regard to this, and what methods
were in place to prevent it happening, and also for detection. After a
trawl of various institutions' policies and procedures, we found that
many were able to give a definition, but few seemed to expand on
preventative measures, and appropriate action.
Do list members have any experiences in this area?

Kind regards,
Gill
