Volunteers are needed to invigilate the certification tests on Saturday, November 19 in Ottawa, Toronto, Edmonton and Calgary. The Copy Editing test will be from 10:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m., and the Stylistic Editing test will be from 2:30 p.m. to 5:30 p.m.
One volunteer will be the test supervisor, who invigilates both tests. Other volunteers invigilate one (or both) test(s), so there will be two invigilators at each test. As well, a back-up volunteer will be on stand-by, in case one of the others is unable to be at the test.
Test supervisor duties:
• Invigilate at both tests.
• Receive test package from EAC office. Courier completed tests back to EAC.
• Sign in candidates.
• Confirm that candidates have only the permitted books and materials.
• Observe candidates while they write tests.
If you’d like to volunteer, please respond by Wednesday, October 26 to firstname.lastname@example.org. Let us know if you’d like to be a test supervisor, an invigilator (and which tests you’re available for) or a back-up.
Please note that EAC members writing the Copy Editing test or the Stylistic Editing test in 2011 toward their own certification can’t volunteer for either of these tests.
