Follow Loryn’s blog posts as she writes about her final experiences on campus before commencement in May.
I was given the opportunity to administer and proctor the Regional State Placement Testing held at the University of Wisconsin Fox Valley for two Saturday’s in April.
I agreed to do this because I thought it would be great experience to learn more about the regional testing and to communicate with various high school senior students. I administered a room of 65 high school seniors for the Mathematics, English, and Foreign Language placement tests.
It is a great learning experience and a great addition to my resume in higher education. After all, this is a task that the Student Services office handles and runs. The experience was able to give me more of a diverse background of higher education and be able to work with a diverse population of students. I would love to proctor further regional testing placements if given the opportunity.
