committee is organized on a yearly basis at a specific period, for the
execution of both two-year and four-year TVE joint college entrance examinations.
The committee consists of the Chair [served by the TCTE Director], the
Chief Executive Director [served by the TCTE Vice Director], and a number
of members, who form different sections according to task demands. It
obliges itself to facilitate the test-taking process, ensure fairness,
prevent dishonesty, and guarantee the security in the printing places.
There have been a number of plans made for improving
test administration in the future:
[a] responsibility-based operation for individual test districts,
[b] standardized management of all activities in safeguarded test sites,
[c] general operation measures and emergency response measures that help
reduce faulty behaviors of test-takers. In addition, the Center holds
annual meetings to develop general directions for test administration,
re-examine test administration in each test district, and to summarize
problems occurring on test sites and the responding solutions. Records
of the meetings are synthesized and compiled, and the results are incorporated
into the administration manuals for each section of the Center.
The Center has also been making use of multiple channels to spread important
information. It helps test-takers understand the admission process by
providing consultation services through information dissemination workshops,
media, the website, and voice service. To ensure the quality of information
provided, the Center updates information on the website regularly and
sends electronic newsletters. In addition to necessary news releases,
it also provides a supply of pamphlets and posters for individual test
districts, schools, test-coaching institutes, and town governments. The
Center also invites high school teachers and junior college teachers to
the workshops before the exam registration materials are available for
The Center will utilize info-technology, especially the Internet, to make
its services more convenient and accessible, such as on-line consultation,
registration, and practice tests. This will be done to the benefit and
interest of test-takers, test administration bodies, and recruiting schools.
