An Educational Testing Service (ETS) Computer-Based Testing Center has opened at Frostburg State University. The Center allows community members and students to complete ETS college-based computerized exams locally, instead of driving to Baltimore or Morgantown. This provides a valuable service to those who are required to complete an ETS-sponsored test for teacher education, professional certification and graduate school admission.
The Computer-Based Testing Center offers Praxis I (Math, Reading, Writing), GRE (Graduate Record Examinations), GMAT (Graduate Management Admission Test), TOEFL (Test of English as a Foreign Language) and other professional exams. It does not offer the SAT exam. The Center, in Pullen Hall 105-A, is open Monday and Friday from 8 a.m. to noon and Tuesday and Thursday from 1 to 5 p.m. Examinees may register by calling the Center at (301) 687-7990 during operating hours or any time at the 800 numbers for individual tests:
PRAXIS I: 800-853-6773
According to Dr. Spencer Deakin, FSU Director of Counseling, the Center is the newest of 106 institution-based testing centers nationwide and only the second in Maryland.
