Employed through the Student Engagement and
Leadership office: student leaders who work with
groups across campus during various events.
Have recruited Student Ambassadors to assist during
Finals Week rush periods for a number of years.
Testing in 4 locations during finals: Ambassadors greet
students and direct them to the appropriate location.
In turn, CTS staff members have been invited to:
Ambassador Interview Committee, End-of-Year
Banquets, other Campus “Privileged” Initiatives.
In Autumn 2014, partnered with the College Bookstore
to install a Point of Sale Machine in the Testing Center
Calculators, batteries and other test taking items made
available for purchase.
Since then, 482 basic calculators and 31 packs of AAA
batteries have been sold.
Approx. 160 calculators per semester!
Cell Phone Lockers
Matches vendor requirements - Consistency
Acquired Cell Phone Lockers in March 2015 through College’s Capital Equipment cycle.
Immediate decrease in the number of Cell Phone disruptions in the testing arena.
20-30 Cell phone incidents per semester prior to the lockers.
2 Incidents in Summer Semester (first full semester with lockers)
1 of which was a deliberate cheating attempt – trying to use phone to capture test information.
