Brookdale Testing Services Manager Receives Award

For the third consecutive year, Brookdale Testing Services Manager Nancy O’Shea has been honored by the National College Testing Association (NCTA) for helping to promote excellence at college testing centers across the country.

As a volunteer with the NCTA’s Test Center Certification Committee, O’Shea has mentored testing centers and helped them to apply for NCTA certification since 2012.

The certification, which so far has been awarded to only about 75 colleges, recognizes testing centers that exemplify the NCTA’s rigorous standards for testing administration, development, scoring, security and testing environment. Brookdale’s Testing Center was one of the first in the country to be certified by the organization back in 2011.

“After our testing center received that certification, I decided to volunteer and help others do the same,” O’Shea said. “It is a worthy mission, and I am honored to once again receive this award.”

With 2,100 members representing more than 1,800 institutions and 230 corporations, the nonprofit NCTA is the largest organization in the world dedicated to the promotion of professional testing standards and practices.

In a letter accompanying O’Shea’s 2014 Service Recognition Award, NCTA President Steve Saladin personally thanked her for working to support the organization’s goals and for sharing her expertise with colleges across America.

“It is the generous donation of time and talents by members like you that make the NCTA the organization that it is today,” Saladin said.
