North Texas Community College Consortium - Dallas, TX
CLEP will hold a mini-conference at the North Texas Community College Consortium on October 26th, 2012. Kent Seaver, director of Learning Resources/Testing at North Lake College will present a session titled "Roots of Success: Using CLEP to Achieve Student Success." We encourage higher ed professionals and test center administrators in Texas and other areas of the states to participate.
Session Description: The presenter will discuss how the CLEP exam can lead to an increase in students' college completion rates. Topics range from an overview of CLEP basics to sharing of detailed data from North Lake College, which indicates that incoming freshman taking the Spanish CLEP exam had higher GPA's and retention rates when compared to an "average" students entering college at the same time.
