DELTA Testing Services has been a member of the National College Testing Association (NCTA) for four years. DELTA Testing Services has upheld the NCTA’s professional standards and mission to promote “professionalism and quality in the administration of testing services and programs” which also coincides with NC State’s policy on academic integrity.
In March, DELTA Test Services was granted NCTA Test Center Certification; this is a notable achievement as there are more than 3,800 universities and private testing centers participating in the NCTA and to date only 125 centers have been granted certification since the process began in 2010.
The Center is evaluated based on facilities, integrity, staff training and customer service. Test Center Certification exemplifies to the public that DELTA Testing Services operates under the highest standards and procedures. Due to the excellent standards and commitment of the DELTA Testing Services staff and recent expansion of the Testing Center facility, the evaluation process resulted in certification.
Receiving certification is certainly a long term benefit considering Distance Education has had steady growth over the past few years, requiring more testing services. DELTA Testing Services is expected to continue applying its expertise in technologies and pedagogies to effectively provide testing services and foster student success.
