Superintending 2021

  • Hopefully they are. That's fairly on the ball communication wise. If one poster here missed it I'm sure others did too.

    Go SEC.

    The SEC might be keeping an eye on this thread as they just sent us all a letter clarifying this specific point about the box.

    I wonder has this issue come up on VFT? The volume of questions there on superintending is astounding. And the number of people giving information that is classified out on a public page under their real name is shocking me too.




  • There are a couple of contradictions in the instructions when working between the three booklets. Mostly minor but still, they are there. Probably caused by the three pickup days situation causing revisions.

    The amount of idiots that post on VFT is astounding. Stopped following it a couple of years ago.

    The examinations aide will give you the projects which you include with the candidates scripts.

    Thanks

    What happens to a geography project belonging to a student who doesn’t show up?

  • Also a contradiction on Form E.10A, the green booklet with 'Liosta Shíniú d'Iarrthóirí Seachtracha' but the English translation is just 'Signature List for Candidates'. Throughout, the English says "All candidates" but the Irish says "Iarrthóirí seachtracha" (external candidates).

    I'm getting each candidate to sign it at each exam, ar eagla na heagla.

    You include it anyway. They still get that percentage for the project. ( and the assessed grade too).

    Thanks, sorted it this morning.

    Your right that’s only for externals but good on you for following the mistake :)!!

    Day to day instructions says to only return coursework if the student has sat the exam or if they have not sat the exam but were listed on the advice list.

    I am too. It's my only real proof of who was there.

    Ya if they’re on the advice list you send it back regardless of whether they show up or not. If they let not on the advice list hold them in the school.




  • Re geography: On the instructions, only accept projects from students actually sitting the exam, extras hand back to the exam aide

    I called this morning and was told by the SEC to send coursework back for students who are listed on the advice list regardless of whether they completed the exam or not.

    The superintendents here seemed to have gathered the same info when I relayed it.

    The centre roll and advice lists track who was present no?




  • The centre roll and advice lists track who was present no?

    The advice lists yes, but this is a signature....just in case.

    I think the schools I taught in have made me suspicious and untrusting. I am superintending in a lovely school with super polite children. It's a little bit like the Stepford wives for me that was used to people bringing in hammers and knives.

    We had one day where two parents came in and kicked the doors in along the top corridor looking for some young one who had slagged one of their young fellas. I can laugh now, but it was quite scary.




  • What are people doing with the used question papers? I know the unused ones go back into the stationery box. I have a pile of question papers that students used/wrote notes on/highlighted etc that they would have handed up with their answer booklet if they left an exam early.

    I'm just wondering what people are doing with theirs. Our coordinator isn't sure.




  • Once the end of the exam has passed, you can do whatever you like with them at that stage as far as I know.

    In the school I'm in, we leave them into the staffroom, as some teachers use the material for future class tests, and the CDs (eg. for Irish) or the aerial photographs (eg. for Geography) come in useful.




  • Did anyone receive a form where you sign to say that you did the online training etc? Some superintendents in our school received it but most did not!

    Nobody in my centre anyway.

  • Got it in my pack and got another when I collected the second batch of papers.

    No, I only got the one that said the box was checked after collection.




  • Thanks for the replies guys. I phoned them today and they emailed me out the form to print.

    There is something missing, for me anyway, every year!!




  • No, I only got the one that said the box was checked after collection.

    Does it not have a line at the top of that one about the training? Colour images on form, three spaces to sign about about checking?

    Yeah it does!

    I have mine posted back, got it signed the first day so didn’t look at it since




  • They told me to post it back to the financial section with my form of account. But, sure they must be used to various forms coming back in the wrong envelopes etc. They don't exactly make things clear!!




  • For those that superintend regularly, is there any sort of advance, as there is for examining?

    In the past, there was but that was used to pay the attendant but the school is paying them now.

    There doesn’t seem to be an advance for marking this year either, just FYI!
