eCBT Platform Sunset on track for end of May 2014

The computer-based testing platform (eCBT) will sunset on May 31, 2014. If you are an eCBT test center that is transitioning to the internet-based testing platform (iBT), and are either waiting for a contract to be signed or a transition appointment to be scheduled, it is critical that you complete these steps in order to continue CLEP administrations following the eCBT platform sunset.

1. Secure your place on the transition schedule:

We will be disabling the current eCBT testing platform on May 31, 2014.  After this date, you will not be able to deliver eCBT exams and any test results that have not been returned prior to 11:59 p.m. EDT on May 31, 2014 will not be processed.  iBT transition time slots are quickly filling up and time is of the essence for you to secure your place on the schedule.

2. Perform end-of-day process:

It is essential for any test centers still running the eCBT testing platform to perform the end-of-day process on all existing TDMS servers by the May 31, 2014 deadline. This will ensure that all remaining eCBT test results will be successfully returned to CLEP for processing.  After this last end-of-day procedure is performed, you are required to uninstall the eCBT software from all TDMS servers and destroy the CD.

3. Contact ETS for questions:
If you have questions about your contract, please contact ETS Strategic Sourcing Contract Management at SSCM@ets.org.  For all other iBT inquiries, contact CLEP Technical Support at clepibtsupport@ets.org, or at (800) 241-5357 between 8:00 a.m. and 8:00 p.m. EDT, Monday through Friday.
