Testing Center Watch Ban | TASC Test

July 17, 2015 thetasctest

The April 2015 release of Apple’s new smartwatch has made the difference between computers and wrist watches essentially non-existent. Before you enter the testing center to take the TASC Test Assessing Secondary Completion™, make yourself aware of the recent testing center watch ban.

Most test centers are prohibiting personal technology of any kind (beyond the recommended calculators) to avoid the potential for high-tech cheating. A smartwatch could allow students to receive test answers or look up information during the test. For students who regularly wear a wristwatch, the new ban may come as a disappointment. Testing centers have started to increase the number of large wall clocks in the examination venue to assist in time tracking for the duration of the test. 

For questions or concerns, contact your local testing center to learn more about this new policy.
