Cognitive Testing Center and The Whitener Group

Dear Employers and Administrators

American Social Services of Uptown Ltd:  Cognitive Testing  Center is a proud testing site partner  of The Whtener Group that developed the certification programs along with other organizations.  The center is equiped with 30 internet based computers and a space for paper and pencil testings.


The Manufacturing Skill Standards Council (MSSC) is a nationwide, industry-led organization that focuses on the core knowledge and skills needed by production workers in the nation's advanced manufacturing sector. The MSSC Training, Assessment and Credentialing System offers workers and students the opportunity to demonstrate that they have mastered t the skills increasingly needed in the high-growth, technical jobs of the 21st century.

The Whitener Group is a proud partner of the MSSC Production Technician certification. MSSC and The Whitener Group developed the certification program along with other organizations to ensure the knowledge and skill sets of current and future high-performance manufacturing employees


Cognitive Testing Center proctors oversee the administration of the assessments listed below.  In addition to administering the assessment, our organization is generally required to inventory testing materials before and after the assessment, take attendance to ensure all participants are present and identified before entering the testing room


Paper and Pencil-Based testing.


We proctor paper and pencil based testings also.  The written assessments consist of multiple-choice items and measure the level of technical knowledge acquired by the participant in a particular occupational area. Written assessments may be administered to a large number of participants in several technical areas at one time and we have 1 proctor for every 25 test takers

(e.g., a group of 50 test takers should have at least 2 proctors).


Our evaluators oversee the administration of a performance assessment. In addition to administering the assessment, evaluators are generally required to inventory testing materials

before and after the assessment, take attendance to ensure all participants are present, distribute and collect testing materials, provide instructions to test takers, determine and monitor breaks, keep track of time, maintain a presence in the testing room to discourage talking or cheating, and document any irregularities. In addition, the evaluator rates each participant's performance on the specific job(s).



You have the experience - now demonstrate your expertise and get the recognition your skills deserve. Certification increases your credibility in the marketplace and is tangible evidence that you have what it takes to provide top-notch support and service to your employer.
