VE Roles and Permissions in an ExamTools session

ExamTools allows for the owner of a session to assign roles and permissions to each VE attending. These range from the Session Owner to monitoring Volunteer Examiners.

  • Owner: This is the ExamTools user that creates a session. They are responsible for managing the details of the session itself, including starting, changing, and finalizing the session.

  • Co-Owner (Team Lead): A VE that has been explicitly authorized by the owner of the session to act with full permissions on their behalf.

  • VE Administrator: A more experienced VE Team Member that is typically a capable decision maker. They are able to help VE Team Members be assigned correctly, and manage the candidate information.

  • VE Team Member: VEs that are monitoring exams and signing forms.
