Payment for Correcting Exam Assessments

Payment for Correcting Exam Assessments

Am I Eligible?

The following staff members are eligible to claim for correcting end of semester exam / assessments.

    • Assistant Professor (formally Lecturer Above Bar)
    • Lecturer (formally Lecturer Below Bar)
    • Teaching Assistant

What can I claim for?

Payment for the correction of examinations is based on the principle of one payment per student per module. The rate of payment is determined by the module credit e.g. 5 credit module €2.52, 10 credit €5.04. Payment can be made for assignments / exams that contribute towards student's overall assessment for a module.

For example:
A module may include two methods of assessment e.g. an assignment worth 40% of the module and an end of semester examination worth 60%. The module in this example is a five credit module with a rate of payment of €2.52. Therefore the staff member correcting the assignment can claim 40% of €2.52 per student (i.e. €1.00) and the staff member correcting the examination can claim 60% of the €2.52 (i.e. €1.52).
