Module 10.1: Instructions for Evaluators
An example of a significant mistake is crossing the radiological boundary in
violation of procedures.
No credit is given if significant mistake is identified by worker, but do not
record an automatic failure.
If significant mistake is NOT identified by worker, no credit given for specific
item and an automatic failure is recorded.
An automatic failure must be recorded if any significant mistake is made that is NOT
identified by the worker.
It is recommended that if using a weighted point system, some type of numerical
value be linked to an automatic failure action. This numerical value will help
eliminate a situation where a student receives a total of 95 points out of 100, but
still fails. (A student may be confused if they're informed they received a 95%,
but did not pass.)
Examples of an automatic failure
The following are only examples of what may constitute an automatic failure. This
list is not an all inclusive list. It is recommended that each facility develop a facility-
specific list of automatic failure actions and provide the list to the students.
Entering the area without dosimeter(s).
Chewing gum inside the area.
Reaching/entering into an area without meeting site procedural requirements.
Failure to monitor upon exit.
