2017/18 Maths Modules

If you would like to find out the Lecturer for a module in 2016/17, please use the Module Catalogue links on the left.  You can also find a list of Lecturers for modules offered over the last few years, here.
Exam Marking Help & Transcription Checking
The two lists "Allocations By Name" and "Allocations by Module" above show who has been allocated to provide help with exam marking and transcription checking for which modules.
 
The date of individual exams can be found at http://timetable.leeds.ac.uk/exams/exam_dept.asp .
Lecturers and helpers should get in touch with each other to coordinate the time the marking will take place. Email addresses are on the “Allocations by Name” list.

Principles of team exam marking:
  • The lecturer is in charge of organising the marking procedures and instruct the helpers accordingly. It would therefore be most practical and efficient for all the exam markers to carry out the marking simultaneously in one location, so that they can consult with the lecturer and with each other to ensure consistency.
  • Each marker marks the same question(s) (or parts of questions) for all students on the module, as much as possible.
IMPORTANT! All marking must be carried out in red ink, and there must be a clear system of indicating on the margin how many marks were achieved in each subsection out of the maximum. The External Examiners will look at the scripts and should be able to clearly see how many marks were given.
  • For modules where there are exam marking helpers, the helpers will also help with the transcription checking.
  • For modules where only transcription checkers have been allocated, the lecturers should contact the transcription checker ahead of time to agree on a time when this will be done. There is no need to report the time for this, and checkers will be allocated 3 minutes per script for this task.
  • For modules where there are no helpers or transcription checkers (with enrolments of less than 30) , the assessor is responsible for the transcription checking.
Transcription checkers need to check that
(i)    All parts of the questions have been marked, and
(ii)   The marks have been added up and transcribed to the front of the exam paper correctly, and
(iii)  The marks have been entered into the spreadsheet correctly.


IMPORTANT! All exam scripts must be initialled by the transcription checker at the bottom right-hand corner on the front page. The lecturers should ensure that this is done. The External Examiners expect to see these initials as evidence that the checking has been done for each script.
 
The time the exam marking helpers have spent marking and checking the transcription should be reported by the lecturer on the mark sheet (which will be sent out close to the start of the exam period), when returning the marks to Louise.

Checking Teaching Allocations and Teaching Timetables
Timetabling of teaching activities for the 2017/18 academic year is now almost completed. 
Please follow the instructions below to check the timetables for the modules you have been allocated to.
If anything looks incorrect or unclear please let Louise or Phil know as soon as possible.

Step 1
  • Check the Allocations by Name list to see which modules you have been allocated to as Lecturer or Tutor or Marker. You can see everyone allocated to the modules you are involved with on the Allocations by Module list.
Step 2
  • For the modules you have been allocated to, check the module timetables.  Choosing 'List View' will give you more information, including the staff allocated to each activity.  Please ignore the column labelled 'Size'. 

Please note:
  • Week patterns for 2017/18 can be found here. Some activities (tutorials, workshops, practicals, etc.) are only timetabled in specific weeks, and rooms have only been requested for these specific weeks. Please carefully check that you are clear which weeks each activity is taking place in. 
  • Module Lecturers have been allocated to at least one tutorial or workshop group for the modules they are teaching.
  • Central teaching space rooms will be allocated from May onwards.  Teaching staff will be reminded to check their room allocations at a later date.
  • All requests for times and room requirements which were submitted via the Teaching Preference Survey have been taken into account and accommodated where at all possible.
  • All Level 5M Financial Maths modules are timetabled by the Business School.
  • MATH3021/5021M are timetabled by Philosophy.
  • Personal staff timetables will be available on Faculty Services at a later date.

Additional Information for Postgraduate Tutors and Markers
  • In September (or shortly before), we will contact you to regarding paperwork relating to your tutoring and marking duties.  Once you have received this, please ensure you come to the Taught Student Office on level 8 of the School of Mathematics to sign your Teaching Activity Schedule Form, and a registration form if you have not undertaken tutoring or marking work with us before, so that we can make payments to you.
  • Postgraduate students who have not attended training previously, must do so.  This will be arranged for one day in September – further details will be circulated closer to the time.  You will normally receive payment for completing the training.
  • Before engaging in any teaching activity, make sure to read this Health & Safety Briefing.
  • In addition to contact and/or assessment hours, you will also receive payment for preparation time and holiday pay.  The total number of preparation, contact and assessment hours you are allocated for each Semester is totalled and then divided into three payments.  Payments are made on the last working day of the month.  In Semester 1, you should expect to receive payments at the end of October, November, December and January.  In Semester 2, we expect this would be February, March, April and May.  Holiday pay is calculated at the rate of an extra hour's pay for each 9.5 hours worked.  Note that each month's pay will not be equal, so if you suspect you have not been paid correctly please wait until the end of the payment period before letting us know.
  • There are two rates of pay.  Most duties are paid at the rate of around £14.56 an hour.  Computer workshops and practical assistance are paid at the rate of around £12.21 an hour.
  • Exam marking and transcription checking duties will be allocated at a later date.  The payments for this will normally be made at the end of February (for Semester 1) and July (for Semester 2).
