Chief ExaminersCGI of Canada is always looking to expand our pool of Chief Examiners in the following subjects. Exams are twice a year, in June and November:
Current Duties of Examiner
QualificationsExaminers must be subject matter experts with recognized degrees or other qualifications in the area in which they are serving as Chief Examiner. Examiners often teach the subject matter at a university-level or may be doctoral student in the subject area. While preference is given to CGI of Canada members (ACIS, FCIS), doctoral students or individuals not affiliated with CGI of will also be considered.
CompensationExaminers will receive $1,000 for each examination and model solution/marking scheme modified as well as $20 for each script marked. If a student requests additional commentary, an additional payment of $50 will be made.
Exam StructureExaminations consist of six 25-mark questions. The questions are analytical in nature, and are designed to test the ability of candidates to apply their subject knowledge. Candidates are required to answer four of the six questions and are able to choose which four they will answer. Questions that outline real-world situations that candidates may face are appropriate. A knowledgeable candidate should be able to answer each question in approximately forty-five minutes.
Marking ExamsOnce the exams have been completed by candidates, the Office will send the scripts to the Examiner for marking. Since the questions are more analytical in nature, they require more than just a mark based on check marks, so more commentary from the Examiner is appropriate. A good guideline is to mark scripts so that a third party can clearly understand why the mark was allocated. A red and green pen will be included in the package of scripts to be marked.
In considering individual scripts, Examiners should be open to the idea that students may bring up points or, in the case of analytical questions, approaches that differ from the model solution/marking scheme. If the response is valid, it should be accepted. The initial marking should be completed using the red pen provided. Borderline scripts should be re-marked using the green pen.
