Test Run


Dr. John Weber

If next year’s chemistry students have any issues with their first general examination, they can take it up with John Weber, assistant professor in chemistry at Utah State University Eastern.

Weber has recently been appointed to a committee of the American Chemical Society’s Division of Chemical Education’s Examinations Institute. His committee’s task is to produce the 2015 General Chemistry First Term Examination. Yes, students, these exams go through their own set of test runs before reaching you.

The work by the committee, with members throughout the United States, is predominantly handled through mail, but members who attend the national ACS meetings also have essential working sessions during the weekend preceding the opening of each ACS meeting, said Thomas A. Holme, ACE director in a letter to USU Eastern Vice Chancellor Peter Iyere.

“We are pleased to have Dr. Weber represent USU Eastern in this capacity,” Iyere said. “The ACS is a respected and prestigious organization. This appointment speaks well of John; that he is held in high esteem by his colleagues.”

The ACS is a congressionally chartered independent membership organization which represents professionals at all degree levels and in all fields of chemistry and sciences that involve chemistry.
