CSU Testing Center Achieves National Recertification

Recently, the National College Testing Association (NCTA) recertified Columbus State University’s Testing Center as a leader in excellent testing practices. Criteria for NCTA certification are rigorous and are based on its Professional Standards and Guidelines, which were developed to guide post-secondary test centers in their delivery of quality testing programs. The CSU Testing Center is one of a growing number of test centers in the U.S. and Canada to have completed this intensive recertification process. This recertification will be in place for five years and can be renewed by demonstrating continued compliance to national standards. “Congratulations to the entire staff at the CSU Testing Center for maintaining high test administration standards and for providing excellent service to a wide variety of students and community members in the performance of their duties,” said Dr. Camille A. Hassenplug, senior director of CSU’s Testing Center. The National College Testing Association, a nonprofit organization dedicated to promoting 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 2,200 testing professionals from 650 colleges and universities, as well as 50 test companies and organizations offering test-related products and services.
