The Test Center at Harford Community College was recently awarded test center certification by the National College Testing Association (NCTA). Criteria for certification are rigorous and 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 Harford Community College Test Center is one of the few test centers in the United States 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.
Jennie Towner, Ruby Burchett and the entire staff of the Harford Community College Test Center were recognized 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 nonprofit 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 1,750 testing professionals from 615 colleges and universities as well as 42 test companies and organizations offering test-related products and services.
