Duane Goupell, director of Testing Services at the University of Wisconsin Oshkosh, has begun duties as president of the National College Testing Association (NCTA)–composed of more than 2,200 members from across the U.S. and beyond.
Goupell is entering the second year of a four-year commitment: elected to serve a year as president-elect, two years as president and a year as past-president.
“The biggest thing is, I’m the face and voice of the organization,” he said about the association made up of college testing personnel and representatives of test companies.
Goupell has been at UW Oshkosh since January 2004 and has been a member of NCTA since its inception in 2000.
“The testing industry has changed dramatically in the past 10 years,” he said. “The biggest reason is because of the technology that is available and used. More and more agencies are going to computer-based testing–something we’ve had many years at the University.”
Testing Services is located at UW Oshkosh in Polk Library, Room 4.
