BRJU contains rules and guidelines for the different roles that teachers and researchers have at JU. Below is an extract from BRJU on the role of the examiner.
Link to Regulations and Guidelines for Education, BRJU.
A course coordinator and an examiner should be appointed for each course. These roles should not be held by one individual. The course coordinator is responsible for ensuring that a course or course segment is planned and implemented. The examiner should be employed at JU or similar, for example adjunct, and is responsible for the
correspondence of the course examination and the
course learning outcomes.
Appointment of examiners is done by the responsible person appointed at each school. For first-cycle courses, the examiner shall have at least a degree at the second-cycle level or equivalent competence. For second-cycle courses, the examiner shall have at least a degree at the third-cycle level or equivalent competence.
Examiners for the independent project (thesis) course, regardless of whether this is at the first or second-cycle level, shall have at least a degree at the third-cycle level or equivalent competence. The examiner and the supervisor for the independent work (the degree project) required for the degree shall be different individuals, unless special reasons exist.
The examiner is responsible for the results being reported to Ladok, whereupon notifications are automatically sent to students.
Grades for a course shall be set by an examiner who has been specially appointed by the school.
An examiner for education at third-cycle level shall have the competence of at least docent or equivalent and is established by the authority within the school who is authorised to decide on the matter.
