We have noticed that facilitators leave marking memorandums in the student PoE’s. This raises concerns for us at the ICB as it could mean that facilitators are sharing the memo’s with the students which is not allowed.

The memos are for the use of the facilitator when marking the tests and are not shown to the student. The facilitator should explain to students where they went wrong in the tests by going through the tests collectively with the students or individually.

Facilitators are not to give memo’s to students. Invigilators should also check the PoE and if there is a memo in the PoE, remove it and inform line managers of what was found.

If the ICB discovers the memo in the PoE this is flagged as an irregularity for which there is a financial penalty payable.
