The Assessment Center at St. Louis Community College-Florissant Valley was 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 postsecondary test centers in the delivery of quality testing programs.

The Florissant Valley Assessment Center is among the growing number of 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 cam be renewed by demonstrating continued compliance to national standards.

Ruby Curry, interim president of STLCC-Florissant Valley, praised the work done by Patti Barnes, manager of advising and assessment, and the center staff.

“They uphold high test administration standards and provide excellent service to a wide variety of students and community members in the performance of their duties,” Curry said.

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 2,200 testing professionals from 650 colleges and universities, as well as 50 test companies and organizations offering test-related products and services.
