The Testing Center at College of DuPage recently received Test Center Certification from the National College Testing Association (NCTA).

Criteria for certification are rigorous and are based on the NCTA Professional Standards and Guidelines, which were developed to guide post-secondary test centers in the delivery of quality testing programs. The College of DuPage Testing Center is only one of 25 test centers at two- and four-year colleges and universities in the U.S. and Canada to have completed this intensive certification process. The certification will be in place for five years and can be renewed by demonstrating continued compliance to national standards.

"It's important to have secure testing environments and trained staff to administer tests, and this certification is a reflection of the strict regulations that we follow at College of DuPage," said Lisa Stock, Ph.D., Dean of Learning Resources. "Congratulations to Coordinators Sherry Machacek, Jarret Dyer and our Testing Center staff for maintaining high test administration standards."

The NCTA is a non-profit organization dedicated to the promotion of professionalism and high quality service in the administration of testing programs. It offers certification to college and university test centers that demonstrate exemplary practices.
