Congratulations to Erica Reyes and the entire staff at Waubonsee Community College, Learning Assessment and Testing Services Department, Aurora Fox Valley Campus for achieving NCTA Test Center Certification!  

More about Waubonsee Community College:

Located in the Fox Valley suburbs, about 45 miles west of downtown Chicago, Waubonsee Community College has four campus locations and a wide range of academic and career programs tailored to meet the needs of students, community members and professionals alike. Waubonsee opened its Aurora Fox Valley location on the Rush-Copley Medical Center Campus in Aurora, Illinois, in January of 1997. In 2016, there was a major renovation of that campus, which included the opening of a new testing center. The campus is now home to a majority of Waubonsee’s health care programs.

The Learning Assessment and Testing Services Department is committed to facilitating student success by providing a broad range of testing services. With 19 staff members throughout our four-campus network, the department supports Waubonsee students, staff, faculty and community members looking to fulfill academic, career and certification testing needs. In 2015, Learning Assessment and Testing Services received NCTA Test Center Certification for their Sugar Grove, Aurora Downtown and Plano testing centers, and is now pleased to add our fourth NCTA certified testing center.

Erica and team continue to provide the highest test administration standards and excellent service to a wide variety of students and community members from their locations in suburban Chicago.

As we are all well aware, the criteria for NCTA certification are rigorous.  We welcome Erica and the entire team at Waubonsee CC, Aurora Fox Valley Campus as the latest addition in the growing community of NCTA Certified Testing Centers.

NCTA Responds to the Cheating Scandal

The National College Testing Association (NCTA) is deeply distraught by the allegations contained in a federal criminal indictment unsealed yesterday in Boston, that a "college prep" organization used bribes, testing by proxy, cheating and fraud to obtain an unfair competitive advantage for admission to a number of prestigious colleges and universities. Actions like those alleged in the indictment erode the public trust placed in institutions of higher education and cause serious damage to the educational process.

The NCTA works with testing providers and regulatory agencies to establish high standards and best practices for test administration, and to create ethical guidelines that ensure equal consideration for all candidates regardless of their background. Our members continue to advocate proctoring standards and procedures that safeguard test content, validate the identity of students, and present a level playing field for all. The NCTA Governing Board serves to promote professional standards and effective public policy, and are available to speak on behalf of the organization.

The NCTA is a network of more 2,300 testing professionals in colleges, universities, testing companies and policy-making agencies. Since our inception we have practiced and promoted test security within our universities in order to ensure that tests are fairly administered and reflect the performance of the intended student. Our members play a critical role within the testing industry in terms of creating, managing and administering tests employed in higher education.  Read the press release >>
