A successful transition to the Paper-Chi system, replacing Digital Desk.-Faculty Focus Group. -Subcommittee within Testing and the programmers. -Train Testing staff and proctors -Communicate change to faculty -Regular meetings with DevelopersEnhance critical thinking skills Leadership development better customer service -Evaluation of employees -Faculty Focus Group continued -Random rating of customer service to be part of evaluationsEnter Results The transition to Paper Chi will have continual issues, but after Fall 2009 Finals, we can declare that the change was successful in its utility, ability to score students and report scores to faculty and students. It was also technically sound, which is beyond what we were able to get from the previous system, Digital Desk.The use of results is very complicated because detail-oriented issues still arise. The Online Testing Steering Committee (OTSC) continues to have faculty guests in committee meetings. We use these meetings to go directly to the problem and address it or evaluate it. We also question faculty who we have contact with at the testing center. We use those results and information to help us in planning in OTSC. So far, the student evaluations have been primarily used for other, non-techinical issues. Paper-Chi continues to change probably each month from our requests and ongoing assessment.
