CommunityDiversity in hiring, as well as a training session added about campus diversity.Creation of a training session for hourly and salaried staff, with the aid of Adrienne Andrews. Points added to diverse candidates during search process of hourly employeesProfessional development for student cohorts, the hourly student staff. Chi Tester quiz after completion of training.Adrienne Andrews is presenting at our Testing Retreat on June 10th. We have hired a slightly higher number of minority student workers thanks to our diversity points in hiring. 12% of our hourly staff fall into an ethnic minority group. 35% meet the standard as nontraditional students. We may better judge this after Adrienne's training. We do have higher nontraditional and minority students than last year working for us. It has worked out well in a functinal way, but we are unsure of how to measure the results at this point.

Faculty relations eased through this manager.Anthony has taken on the position with great enthusiasm. he has been our liaison with Dev Math, supervisor of staff, creator of HUB training material,and our overall training manager. The communication between Testing and Dev Math has improved and I am receiving praise frpom faculty over there. So far, we have used the results to analyze our policies and relationships in Dev Math. Our incident reports have increased and we are asking why. We are witnessing a better trained staff, who have test review results to show their knowledge.
OtherSurveillance Cameras added to Other Ogden Testing CentersSecuring Funding for System from Stone Security. Training of Staff on usage and storage.Provides evidence of a student's presence when a conflict arises.Tracking incidences when the cameras were an aid to a faculty member or resolved an issue with a student or caught a cheater.We have not moved on any additions until we build back our money. Dev Math may pay for surveillance at the HUB Testing Centers.This valuable resources has proven its worth with faculty.
