TLC Testing Notes

2021-2022: Testing was back at full capacity, and traffic essentially doubled. Tech Course Exams and CCTST exams increased significantly. 

2020-2021: Due to the pandemic, testing operated at reduced capacity the entire year.  However, the TLC still proctored twice as many exams as last year, with the most significant increase in paper/pencil exams.  TLC Testing saw more unique courses, professors, exams, and students this year.

2019-2020: This was the first year of TLC testing beginning in Fall 2019.  Testing was then closed in spring once the university went to completely online classes in March 2020 due to COVID.
