LHU Testing Center

About the LHU Testing Center

Lock Haven University has been certified as one of the Internet-based testing sites by Pearson VUE, the company that administers the PECT tests. The site, now known as the LHU Testing Center offers education majors an approved Pearson VUE site for taking the new Pennsylvania Educator Certification Tests.   Until LHU opened its center on  November 3rd, 2012, students had to travel to Harrisburg and/or Philadelphia to take the online exams. Now students schedule test times with Pearson VUE and use the test center on LHU campus where and when it is convenient for them.  As secondary and K-12 education majors are required to take Praxis II exams in addition to the PAPA exam, it is hoped that the testing center will also, in the near future, administer computerized Praxis exams delivered by Educational Testing Service (ETS).  The center is open to students from other institutions as well.
