LEWISTON, Idaho – Lewis-Clark State College’s Testing Center has been recertified by the National College Testing Association through 2028, college officials have announced.
LC State’s Testing Center provides proctored testing services for both students and the community. The proctored tests serve LC State students taking online and hybrid classes, needing to make up tests, needing special accessibility accommodations, and needing to take placement and program admittance exams. The Testing Center is also used for proctored tests for local students attending other schools, community members who need testing, and for those who need to take a professional exam through a variety of testing vendors.
The recertification confirms the Testing Center is following specific policies and procedures to ensure confidentiality, promote academic integrity, and provide a consistent testing environment. It also shows vendors that LC State follows the latest professional standards.
“Being a certified NCTA Testing Center provides us access to the latest information and peer conversations about testing current events and resources,” said Dawn Lesperance, LC State’s director of eLearning Services, Testing Center & Accessibility Services. “We can then pass on any relevant information to the faculty who use our services, to make student exams more effective. We use this information to assure our staff are trained to handle any scenario.”
To earn recertification, which is good for five years, LC State has to show it met the criteria necessary that was developed to guide post-secondary testing centers in the delivery of quality testing programs. Summer Kibbe, LC State’s Testing Center coordinator, led the college’s effort.
