The Center for Academic Support and Excellence (CASE) at Marian University 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 post-secondary test centers in the delivery of quality testing services.

The Marian University CASE office is one of the few test centers 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 Marian University Center for Academic Support and Excellence 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. “Being awarded the NCTA certification is a great accomplishment and I commend Joyce Smith, coordinator of Academic Testing Services for her work and dedication that led to this achievement. I am confident that the CASE office staff will continue to provide excellent service and assistance to students through our testing services,” states Cathy Mathweg, dean Academic Advising and Academic Services.

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 1,750 testing professionals from 615 colleges and universities as well as 42 test companies and organizations offering test-related products and services.
