Linking Arizona Testing Together!


The Arizona Association of College Testing Administrators (AZACTA) works closely with the National College Testing Association (NCTA) http://ncta-testing.org/ AZACTA was created to promote communication, provide professional development opportunities, networking and advocacy support between Arizona college and university testing professionals.

Members are encouraged to share ideas, questions, best testing practices, trends, etc. via meetings and the AZACTA website.

Our hope is that through our collaborations and partnerships among testing professionals, testing companies, and state-policy making agencies, we can address testing issues affecting our state.


Mission


The mission of AZACTA is to enhance professional growth and communication among test administrators employed by Higher Learning Commission accredited postsecondary institutions (or like institutions) in the State of Arizona. AZACTA actively advocates and supports the National College Testing Association’s (NCTA) Professional Standards and Guidelines. Our mission is accomplished by working in partnerships with the Arizona Department of Education (AZDOE), the Arizona Board of Regents, statewide community college districts, post-secondary technical/trade schools, and testing agencies while always keeping the needs of the AZACTA members’ institutions at the center of decision-making.


Vision


AZACTA will become a statewide resource for comprehensive educational assessment tools, shared data, and mentoring for the promotion of professional growth. By working closely with institutions of higher education, certification agencies, test developers, vendors, and educators, AZACTA will adopt high standards of test administration, accuracy, and academic integrity.


By-Laws


The By-Laws for Arizona Association of College Testing Administrators (AZACTA) are a necessary component to allow for the ability to govern the AZACTA association. These By-Laws allow for transparency within the association and for the government of its members and the regulation of its affairs.  Please feel free to peruse through the current AZACTA By-Laws.
