FYI–If a person shows up wanting to take an exam with a small child or a baby because their child care fell through, etc. then please call me–I may be able to set the student up in the Map Room to take their exam.
If I am not available, then Email the Instructor and let them know you cannot let them take the exam with a small child in the room. It is disruptive to other testers and the parent will not be able to fully focus on the exam if they are having to tend to the child. Let the student know that you are contacting the Instructor and if necessary, give them my name/number.
Older children can sit quietly in the Written lab in front of the checkin desk (Cubicle CC) or have the parent take the test on computer #10 if it is available and have the child/ren sit in the written test cubicles to the right (GG, HH).
Thanks for your attention to this–I know it doesn’t happen very often and I know it’s hard to say “No” to someone who shows up with their small child, but I want students to be able to focus on their exams and be successful.
