GW Law Optimizes Exam Scheduling Capabilities with AppointLink Power Tool.
George Washington University Law School recognized the need for enhancing its exam scheduling process, aiming to address challenges faced by both students and administrators. One of the primary concerns was ensuring the confidentiality of student identities, which was at risk due to the existing reliance on student identifiers.
While GW Law’s exam scheduling system had certain capabilities, there were vulnerabilities that posed challenges to maintaining a secure and stress-free exam environment. Unintentional connections between student names and their unique identifiers had the potential to compromise the anonymity crucial to law school processes.
In addition to anonymity concerns, GW Law School identified issues with the traditional method of communicating exam locations. The practice of revealing exam room details only an hour before the test, using monitors, led to last-minute rushes and stress among students. This approach not only increased anxiety but also resulted in logistical challenges and miscommunications. Students, in their haste, often misunderstood verbally communicated room locations, especially when names were similar, such as ‘Stockton Hall’ and ‘Stuart Hall,’ causing confusion and unnecessary stress. GW Law School aimed to improve this situation to create a more seamless and efficient exam experience for everyone involved.
