The Assessment Center at FC is getting a new home. Beginning Tuesday, July 21, 2015 the Assessment Center will be located in Building 3000, Room 3023.
Building 3000 is located just north of Berkeley Avenue and is currently home to Facilities Services and the college’s Maintenance and Operations Department. The new location features a larger and upgraded office space, more computers, new furniture and equipment that will allow Assessment Center staff to serve a greater number of students.
With more than 27,000 exams administered by the Assessment Center each year and an estimated 9,000 students assessed per year, the upgraded center is certainly something students and staff are excited about, said Assessment Center Coordinator Greg Menchaca.
“Serving students is our top priority at FC, and this upgrade is definitely something we’ve been waiting for,” Menchaca said. “It’s going to help us serve a lot more students efficiently and effectively with a secure and more conducive testing environment.”
A total of 73 computers have been dedicated to full-time testing within the new center. It also features a more secure testing environment with a private proctor station, two cameras located in the testing area, and a room equipped with lockers for students to lock their belongings during test times.
The welcome area has also been upgraded. Students will now be able to schedule appointments for testing and group advising with three computers dedicated solely for this purpose. The welcome area also features a new reception counter, a waiting area and two private testing rooms.
Directional signs will be posted to help guide students to the new center. A map with walking directions has also been placed on the Assessment Center website. View the map here.
Students and guests visiting the Assessment Center are encouraged to park their vehicles in the parking structure off of Lemon Street and Fullerton College Drive. A short walk north on Lemon Street crossing Berkeley Avenue will lead to Building 3000. The Assessment Center is located on the second floor of the building.
Summer office hours are Monday through Thursday, 8 a.m. – 5 p.m. For more information please call (714) 992-7117 or visit http://assessment.fullcoll.edu/
