In this session, higher education professionals collaborate with information technology specialists to demonstrate a model for online test administration of a standardized assessment instrument (ETS Major Filed Test). The MFT test, administered to all undergraduate students majoring in business, provides national level benchmarking of students’ academic achievement in the functional areas of business. Bryant University has been administrating the test on the computer-based online testing environment since fall 2007 (paper and pencil since 2001) where students can take the test using their own laptops or by utilizing classroom computer labs connected to the network. The Bryant team has been pioneering the online environment for increased motivation among students, and at the same time modeling the best practice of campus level inter-divisional collaboration and effective use of campus resources.
