Have you guys checked the NCARB Youtube video or demo exam using ARE 5.0 Digital Whiteboard?
The digital whiteboard is just another version of Microsoft paint. Do NCARB people even know who take these exams? "Architects use their hands to draw and do quick calculations".Do they have an undestranding how slower it is to sketch/ do calculations by mouse in an updated "Paint" version for a long stressful time-sensitive architectural exam?? Would you do it the same if you were now supposed to take these exams yoursrlf?
I understand that for at-home test-taking this may be something NCARB wants to mandate so that people aren't cheating. But could they at least allow scratch paper in the test center (that they are supposed to trust for the security and process?)
How should we have our voices heard? Who do we need to talk to? Please advise whom we need to address in order to be heard and understood. WE NEED TO BE HEARD.
