Code of Practice for Problems Class Demonstrators
Guidelines for Demonstrators
A separate job description lists
the specific responsibilities of the Problems Class Co-ordinator.
The Problems Class Co-ordinator and all demonstrators should normally expect to
be physically present in the class throughout the session.
It is a vital part of the education process that the staff
demonstrators engage the students regularly in discussion on the
problems. To this end, staff demonstrators should expect to be
conversant with the basic physics and solutions of all
Cases where, after discussion with the demonstrator, a student feels that the
mark awarded to their work is unfair must be referred to the
Problems Class Co-ordinator for adjudication.
If a demonstrator suspects plagiarism,
e.g. because two scripts are identical, the Problems Class Co-ordinator must
be notified immediately.
If a student is ill, the Missing Marks Procedure can be use to construct an
estimated 'proxy' mark, but only after the Senior Administrator has confirmed that
a Mitigating Circumstances Claim Form has been received by the
Student Services Office and approved by Mitigating Circumstances Committee.
