The Dean of the Faculty ITC has installed an Examination Board on 2 February 2011.
The Examination Board has to decide in an objective and professional manner whether a student has achieved all knowledge, skills and attitudes, as defined in the EER (Education and Examination Regulations) for awarding of a degree, diploma or certificate of a specific course. Therefore, the Examination Board monitors and is involved in all aspects of assessment from policy on assessment via appointment of assessors to the decision about complaints related to assessment.
A list of all tasks of the Examination Board can be found in Section 1 of the Rules and Regulations of the Faculty ITC Examination Board.
The Examination Board consists of five staff members:
The Rules of Procedure of the Examination Board explain the organization and working of the Examination Board in more detail. This includes amongst others the annual cycle of meetings, the signing of diplomas and certificates, and the procedure for handling complaints related to assessment.
Both students and staff may submit requests or complaints related to assessment to the Examination Board. Students can only submit when the previous steps of dealing with complaints and requests have not led to agreement (See the assessment regulations of the course for details on the procedure).
Requests and complaints, with clear grounds and relevant documents, should be addressed in writing to the chairman of the Examination Board (with a copy to the secretary). See article 10 in Rules of Procedure.
Each type of course has its own set of assessment regulations.
As subcommittee of the Examination Board the Certification Committee reviews and updates the Certification of ITC Educational Programs Policy, ensures compliance with UT regulations, and develops and maintains the working procedures for the execution of the certification documents. The committee chair is a member of the Examination Board, and committee members are invited by the committee chair and are approved by the Dean.
The Certification Committee consists of representatives from the Examination Board, the Course Directors, Bureau Education and Research Support (ITC-BOOZ) and an education specialist and prepares the documents and procedures for approval by the Dean. The Examination Board is responsible for managing this process. The Certification Officer is the point of contact for developments at UT central regarding certification.
