HETS - Virtual Plaza

HETS Virtual PlazaHispanic Educational Testing Service - Virtual Plaza

 

The university now has access to a very rich array of “Tools, Resources and Study Aids” to help students succeed in college.  Of particular interest to our students, there is information on career selection and placement, graduate school test preparation materials and so much more.  There are also materials that will be of interest to faculty, staff, and administrators.  Here are some brief steps that will let you get deeply enough into the content to see what it has to offer and to be able to share that content with your staff and with students.

 As their brochure (attached and also available here: http://hets.org/wp/wp-content/uploads/2011/11/HETS-TERC-Flyer-ENGWeb.pdf) says:

“Visit http://www.virtualplaza.org to practice admission exams free of charge, find the college or graduate school that is right for you, and search for scholarships, among other resources.” 

To see some of the resources available to students, follow these steps.  First, click on the link to the “Student Placita.”  When that page opens, you will see a navigation bar along the left side of the page.  Click on the first link to “Testing & Education Reference Center.” Once there, you might want to click on one of the tutorials listed in the middle of the page such as the “Grad School Tools” link and watch a short video that gives an overview of what students will find to help them prepare for graduate school.

If you watched one of the tutorial videos, you will have been redirected to another page.  If your browser kept the previous page open in another window, just go back to the “Testing & Education Reference Center.”  If not, you may have to navigate back to the HETS website first.  Once you are back on the Testing & Education Reference Center” page, scroll down a little ways to find “California State University S. Bernardino,” and click that link (if you hold down the “Ctrl” key on a Windows machine, the link will open in a new window).  Our campus name will be in the left hand column about five links down from the top of a gray bar across the page.  That link takes you to an INFOTRAC login page where you need to type in “calstate2013” as the password.  Please note that we are not allowed to post that password on any of our websites, but we can share it freely with any of our students, staff, and our external educational partners.

Blackboard Learn Achievements
Posted by Felix Zuniga on 17 January 2014 10:33 PM

The Blackboard achievements tool enables instructors to create opportunities for students to earn recognition for their achievements. These opportunities are called achievements. Instructors designate criteria for issuing rewards to students in the form of both badges and certificates. Students can see which rewards they have earned and what is required of them to receive additional rewards, providing insight into learning progression toward defined competencies. Students are able to publish badges to the Mozilla Open Backpack, transporting evidence of their learning outside of Blackboard Learn. Instructors can easily see which students have reached learning milestones.
