I have been a test proctor for about ten years, however Last weekI was let go, and the situation still has me upset, in addition to I am not sure what to do; I was giving a test as I usually do, passed out all of the test materials in addition to was giving guidelines to the studentsâ€¦ Everything was fantastic for the first few hours.
Then a student came up to me in addition to explained that she was absolutely hot, in addition to she needed me to turn the A/C up.
I went over to find the thermostat, however realized it wasn’t in the room. I felt pretty uncomfortable myself, in addition to thought if I was taking the test I would be pretty distracted by the temperature too. I got up in addition to walked out of the room to locate the thermostat, however still couldn’t find 1. I realized that the rooms were being cooled by ductless A/C units that had the thermostat right on them. I went back into the room to turn the A/C unit up a little, in addition to was horrified by what I saw. There were many students with iphones out talking to each other. I immediately provided the students guidelines to get back to work, in addition to notified them that the A/C unit would be starting up actually soon. I got a call a week later from the testing center in addition to they informed me that they could tell our students had cheated. I explained to them what happened with the HVAC idea however they didn’t care. They fired me on the spot. I never saw myself getting let go because of an air conditioning! I will never look at heating in addition to cooling idea the same way.
