The University of Alabama Office of Testing Services was awarded Test Center Certification by the National College Testing Association (NCTA).
A unit of the Office for Academic Affairs, the Office of Testing Services administers a number of tests for UA students, high school students, and members of the surrounding community. Tests are administered in a state-of-the-art testing facility located in Houser Hall.
“We congratulate the entire staff of the Office of Testing Services for maintaining high test administration standards and for providing excellent service to a wide variety of students and community members,” said Dr. Rick Barth, assistant vice president for enrollment management.
Criteria for NCTA 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.
