CLEP Tests
#1
Anyone got an idea thoughts ideas, insights, or happen to be able to see into the future as to when CLEP (and DSST) testing centers will be open? Or any word if they will be online?

Thanks.

Not online; but will be able to open as soon as a college/testing center near you opens up. Depends on where you live as to how soon this will happen.

I have been waiting and there is no end in sight here. However, there never is too many people inside the testing center so I don't see why they cannot open with social distancing.

its probably a matter of cleaning the computers                    

somebody at the testing center would have to disinfect the keyboard and mouse after each use                        
hopefully they wiped them down before all this started, but now they'd have to clean them with alcohol, bleach or maybe lysol  

and don't forget about the language CLEPS         
where they supply you with headphones to listen to vocabulary and conversations             

what will be the procedure then ?             
one time use headphones ?            
or maybe just replace the padding after each use ?
or disinfect the padding ?

Unless you already paid, it might be worth looking into whether you can get credit via some other means. Europe is basically planning on being shut down, in whole or in part, for most of the rest of the year in order to prevent outbreaks. The US hasn't universally implemented the same measures (such as universal mask use) and things are going to wind up getting shut down again almost as quickly as they open up. Despite all the rabble-rousing, I really don't see the US being able to be fully open for another 6-12 months.

Some states never fully shut down.  And there are MANY places around the country already opening up.  FL, GA, & SC are already starting.  More states will soon enough.

The point of this whole thing was to "flatten the curve" not to make sure that nobody dies.

There's going to most likely be a second and third wave of these "viruses" in the coming months, think of it as the flu season year after year. You can't escape it as the darn bugs mutate into slightly different forms, it started with 1 form, as I last read it...it's now up to 8... Society will open back up but it's not going to be as quickly as I hope. I am still hoping before the end of the school year, but by the looks of it, it may not be.

It is entirely dependent upon where you live as to how soon things will open.

I’ve heard that Texas will begin relaxing some restrictions on Monday, so hopefully this insanity is coming to an end. Definitely keep checking with state/local governments to see what’s going on. Also, have you looked to see if there are any privately run test centers near you? When I lived in the DMV, I used a facility that mainly focused on computer/cyber security training and testing. They also offered CLEP and Pearson testing as well. I would imagine it would be much easier for small companies like that to reopen sooner than schools.

Some testing centers are open but quite a few of them are closed.
