OHIO Testing Services reopens with new digital workflows

Published: February 19, 2021 Author: Staff reports

OHIO Testing Services has transitioned to enhanced, new digital workflows to provide timely and modern services to the OHIO community.  

The University provides test scheduling and proctoring for high-stakes exams, test scoring and access to standardized tests through OHIO Testing Services (located at Bromley Hall) and the online proctoring solution provided by Proctortrack. 

Testing Services enlisted the support of the Office of Information Technology’s Digital Workflow service to help digitize and automate several manual processes. The changes will eliminate thousands of emails annually and replace several paper interactions for students, faculty and staff. 

James Petrik, professor and chair of the Philosophy Department, agreed that the new process was easy to use. “In using the center in the past, I have been consistently impressed by the efficiency and reliability of their work,” he said in an email. “In fact, they have caught more than one mistake I was poised to make! I'm really pleased that they were able to open in a socially distanced format this semester so that students have an alternative to the on-line proctoring service.”

These improvements were made possible by OHIO IT’s Digital Workflow service, which supports the University’s digital transformation strategic initiative
