Measures of examiner job satisfaction as predictors of intention to continue examining

To inform the retention of current examiners and the recruitment of new examiners, a survey of examiners’ attitudes to examining was conducted. The anonymous questionnaire included: items to elicit background information about the respondents’ examining experience; 58 closed response items measuring respondents’ attitudes to a variety of aspects of examining; and open-ended questions asking why and how they became examiners; how the role of examiner could be made more attractive and so on. Two thousand five hundred questionnaires were sent to potential examiners with their invitation to examine for the Summer 2004 examination series; 40 per cent (992) of examiners returned the questionnaire.
