Current Offerings

The RWU Educational Testing Center supports Teachers Testing only for NOCTI.  NOCTI’s teacher assessments are designed to measure an individual’s knowledge of higher-level concepts, theories, and applications in specific technical areas and to evaluate individuals with a combination of education, training, and work experience. NOCTI works with Area Test Center (ATC) Coordinators to help create a program that includes training materials for coordinators, proctors, and evaluators. With over 50 technical areas, NOCTI offers a variety of tools and resources for CTE teacher candidates.
