Texas Computer-Based Testing Collaborative (TCTC)
The need for proctored testing is a major roadblock for the delivery of distance learning courses. Many studies require content mastery, which can only be proven in a secure testing environment. This might require a student to drive from one to ten hours for a test. The Texas Computer-based Testing Collaborative (TCTC) is an initiative between twenty-two universities, five libraries, and one K-12 ISD in Texas to create a network that will share testing facilities and services for distance learning students throughout the state.
