I absolutely hate the gym as a testing site. It is very difficult to settle
the students down when they enter such a large space. Clearing calculators
is a nightmare and the proctor situation is awful because the adults tend to
stand together in a huddle and some adults don't think about the shoes they
wear into the gym for this assignment. If someone is wearing shoes with
hard soles, it is extremely noisy and distracting. The gym always seems to
be either cold or hot and there is no good way to regulate the heat. I had
read an article (I don't remember what publication it was in.) that stated
the best testing site was a familiar space. We moved all math regents exams
into classrooms and the students scores improved. We are a very large
district and I needed 33 rooms for Math A and B last year. Distributing
classroom sets of calculators was done by teams of math teachers after the
proctors arrived. This system has worked well for us.

Hello Everyone:
=20
I'm going to try and talk my adminstrators into allowing my department
administer the Regents in the gym or cafeteria as classrooms are a
logistical nightmare and we have teachers from other departments proctor
the exams and they are challenging to work with to say the least. I'd
love to hear from as many people as possible who tried both and like the
gym/cafeteria setting better and why.=20
=20
Thanks everyone,
=20
