The Testing Center Services office at Missouri University of Science and Technology recently received Test Center Certification by the National College Testing Association (NCTA). The certification criteria 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.
In addition, Cheryl Downey-Eber, manager of Testing Center Services at Missouri S&T, was one of 60 NCTA volunteers who received a Service Recognition Award for her work with the Awards and Recognition Committee. This is her third award for service to the organization.
The Missouri S&T Testing Center Services office is one of the first test centers in the U.S. and Canada to complete the certification process. The certification will be effective for five years and can be renewed by demonstrating continued compliance to national standards.
