Abstract

Preparation of examination invigilation schedule is a tedious and challenging tasks. It is impossible to satisfy all invigilators or proctors with the invigilation schedules prepared. The examination committees have to analyze and thoroughly checks all constraints submitted by the invigilators. Formerly, the process of assignments and deciding the best slot for invigilation will usually take a couple of weeks and all these processes are done manually. This paper proposes a programming technique using simple sequential approach to assign the invigilators on the proper examination slot without any conflicts or clashes aligned with the list of constraints and parameters. This simple tools or systems has been developed to help the examination committee to reduce the time taken for invigilation schedule preparation, avoid erroneous of incorrect assignment of invigilators and increase the satisfaction amongst invigilators with the invigilation schedule assigned. However, this tool is only a supplementary support in invigilation assignment process and the manual changes by considering human touch factors are still considered to produce friendly and empathy worthy invigilation schedules.
