Miami Dade College’s Test Centers Earn National Recognition
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. Nine Miami Dade College Test Centers have set the bar high for other post-secondary test centers and achieved national status as a leader in excellent testing practices.
The Testing Departments at Miami Dade College were recently awarded Test Center Certification by 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 Test Centers associated with the Miami Dade College Testing Departments are among a few 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.
Congratulations are extended to the directors of Testing Departments and their entire staff 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.
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 2,000 testing professionals from 615 colleges and universities as well as 42 test companies and organizations offering test-related products and services.
