    Privacy Filters for monitors - Exams etc

    Does anyone use these 17" privacy filters that sit in the monitor recess and narrow the angle of view, so that students at adjacent desks cant view whats on the persons next to thems screen?

    Prices i am getting so far are near on the price of the monitor itself!

    ...yeah, we ended up shelling out about £70 each for a load of these sheets of plastic that you have to sellotape in place. Reediculous.

    I'm sure we didn't pay anything like that for the ones we've got. I'm digging up a quote now, I'll get back to you as soon as I can get hold of something.

    EDIT: Okay, I've got £49 for a 19" screen, 17" would presumably be a bit cheaper. They're still a rip-off but there we go. We're using M3 stuff and you probably want a PF17.0 model, for a supplier talk to CCS Media although you can get them from lots of places.

    Cheers,
    Chris

    We looked at the 3M micro louvre sheets but when we saw the prices on them didn't go for it.

    The exam officer mentioned these a while ago - I did find them at around £30 for 17" but can't' remember where from now - we still didn't purchase them as it was still silly money for what they are.

    Give it a year or two and the exam boards will have these down as a requirement to sit online tests.

    We had a flier through for the 3m ones which was passed to me. Went into the recycling box when I rang up for a price!

    Depending on quantity you can probably get the 19" Dicota ones for sub £40 but agreed, they are a total rip off for what they are.

    When we run computerised exams - we schedule two exams for each IT suite with the kids sitting alternatively round the room - so even if they glance at their neighbour - they'll be doing a completely different exam - simples
