Testing Center

The Program Testing Center at EGTC offers a broad range of assessment testing services for students, faculty, and other campus and community partners. The Center provides testing and proctoring services through adhering to the regulations and guidelines established by the National College Testing Association (NCTA), outside test companies, and EGTC faculty.

Our professional staff members are dedicated to maintaining the highest compliance with institutional, state and federal regulations regarding the confidentiality of testing candidate records. While confidentiality is an important part of our process, we are committed to offering positive, collaborative and courteous services to students, faculty, and staff in the metro Denver community.

Committed to Integrity

A commitment to academic integrity is essential to the mission of Emily Griffith Technical College. Academic dishonesty violates the foundation of education, undermines the experiences within the instructional setting, and negatively impacts the needs of business and industry. This applies to any and all student experiences at the school (including taking the entrance exam) and in affiliate programs (including internships, clinical programs, online classes, etc.). Any violation of this policy in which academic credit is involved may result in immediate program termination and loss of program credit.

The following terms are a broad overview, but not an all-encompassing definition, of what constitutes a violation of academic integrity: cheating, plagiarism, fabrication, forgery, unauthorized collaboration, participation in academically dishonest activities, and facilitating academic dishonesty. For more information, please see pages 29-30 in the EGTC Student Handbook.

WorkKeys Assessment System

The WorkKeys Assessment System is used nationally as a comprehensive method for measuring, communicating and improving the common skills required for success and advancement in the workplace. Skills are quantitatively assessed in individuals, to help demonstrate the competencies employers are requesting of job applicants. Businesses can use the information to make hiring, job training, and promotion decisions. 

WorkKeys is the assessment of choice for both the CareerReady Colorado Certificate and the National Career Readiness Certificate. The individual who takes the WorkKeys is eligible to receive the National Career Readiness Certificate upon completion of the test, and can qualify for the CareerReady Colorado Certificate. CareerReady Colorado is a state certificate that certifies job seeker skills. The certification creates common, objective standards for employment readiness and establishes meaningful skill criteria for workforce partners. 

WorkKeys measures skills in Reading for Information, Applied Mathematics, and Business Writing. There are four levels of achievement : the Bronze Level recipient has the necessary foundation skills for 35 percent of the jobs in the work place, a Silver Level recipient has the necessary foundation skills for 65 percent of the jobs in the work place, and a Gold Level recipient has the necessary basic skills for 90 percent of the jobs in the work place. A Platinum Level recipient has the highest level of skills measurable by this assessment.
