With millions of educational certification and licensure tests administered in the U.S. every year, the need for secure testing environments and trained testing staff has never been greater.
Tyler Junior College has two such testing sites and has set the bar high for other post-secondary test centers and achieved national status as a leader in excellent testing practices.
On the heels of TJC’s main campus testing center receiving national certification last May, TJC’s West Campus testing center has also received Test Center Certification by the National College Testing Association.
Criteria for certification are rigorous and based on the NCTA Professional Standards and Guidelines, which were developed to guide post-secondary testing centers in the delivery of quality testing programs.
TJC’s testing centers are two of the few test centers in the U.S. and Canada to have completed this intensive certification process. This certification will be in place for five years and can be renewed by demonstrating continued compliance to national standards.
NCTA congratulated director Roger Grimm and the entire staff of TJC Testing Services for maintaining high testing administration standards and for providing excellent service to a wide variety of students and community members in the performance of their duties.
The National College Testing Association, a non-profit organization dedicated to the promotion of professionalism and high-quality service in the administration of testing programs, offers certification to college and university test centers that demonstrate exemplary practices. NCTA membership numbers more than 2,100 testing professionals from 615 colleges and universities as well as 42 test companies and organizations offering test-related products and services.
