TracDat Training

TracDat training is offered twice a year; at the beginning of the calendar year for administrative-educational support (AES) units, and at the beginning of the academic year for instructional programs (IP). Training is offered through lecture-style tutorials (TracDat Essentials) and hands-on learning experiences (TracDat Open Lab). TracDat Essentials is an introduction to assessment management software: user interface, functionality, and navigation. TracDat Open Lab is an interactive one-on-one session with an information technology specialist and/or assessment support personnel. These sessions are generally held in the Z Building classrooms.
