Invigilator Password

Available for Planners and Invigilators / Chief Invigilators.


Invigilator Passwords can be set by the Planner on both Safe Exam Browser (SEB) and Open Browser tests.


The purpose of the Invigilator password is:

  • to help a candidate to exit SEB during the exam
  • to help a candidate who has to start SEB two or more times on the same test
  • to help a candidate who wants to withdraw from the test (available on request)
  • to help a candidate to deliver if the Internet is offline
  • to prevent a candidate from opening the test multiple times
Note: The Invigilator Password becomes visible to the Chief invigilator and the Invigilators one hour before the test starts. The password should not be distributed to candidates, but will be entered by the chief invigilator / invigilator if a candidate has been to type the invigilator password in Inspera Assessment.
