Assessment Center – “Movin’ on Up!”

December 1, 2010

Assessment Center in A-203

On November 1, the Assessment Center moved to a “deluxe apartment in the sky.”  If you haven’t had a chance to visit A203, stop by for a tour. The Center is open the same convenient hours of 8 a.m. to 9 p.m. Monday through Thursday, and 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. Friday and Saturday.  The Assessment Center now has 62 state-of-the-art computer and Nova desk stations in a bright and comfortable testing environment. The check-in area and office are open and inviting.

Testing is available in all subject areas and difficulties, including Compass testing, online course testing, make-up exams, CLEP, DSST, Castle, IQT, NCCT, and testing for students from colleges around the world. (Visit the Assessment Center web page for a test cover sheet and additional information.)  The Center serves and supports our students, faculty, and community.

The following list provides a sample of a typical day’s activities in the Assessment Center:

  • Receive and administer over 100 different tests for YTC.
  • Administer Compass test for YTC and other technical colleges.
  • Administer several TABE tests for students needing additional testing.
  • Administer IQT tests for ABPS DM, Society of American Foresters, and the National Surgical Association.
  • Administer CLEP exemption tests for YTC students and students attending other universities who are able to get college credit for what they already know.
  • Contact, receive, and administer online tests for SC technical colleges as well as colleges and universities from coast to coast. Faculty and staff of YTC visit us for this service also as they work online to continue their education. A typical day  will include tests from University of Alabama, Greenville Tech, Limestone, University of Maryland,  Indiana  University, and Columbia State College, to name a few.
