WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) — A new testing center could be making its way to Purdue University.

The plan, as of now, is to renovate one of Purdue’s active learning center spaces into a testing center. The center would be a place for students to take mid-terms, finals and even online testing.

Director of digital education Jon Harbor said the center would have special resources for students with learning disabilities.

He said the main reason for the new center would be to prevent cheating.

“Issues around cheating, and faculty concerns about how do we create facilities and environments that allow students to fairly and honestly demonstrate what they know and what they can do,” Harbor said.

The center is just an idea for now. The upper administration is looking at the proposal and deciding if they want to fund it.
