Print-on-demand tests can be taken at either the McKay Testing or the Taylor Room 130 since these tests are printed as needed.
Those instructors who use the testing center may give write-on tests (essay or short answer-scored by instructor) or multiple choice for which results are seen immediately on TV screen. (Printed scores are still given at the Taylor). These scores can also be looked for on the BYU-Idaho home page under “Testing Services."
Standard tests are also given. These include: ACT, CLEP, PRAXIS, GED. We also give tests for other universities including Independent Study classes. Call 496-1206 for questions or check our web site.
Faculty can view class scores and get an item analysis on our web page. Most reports are now sent through an e-mail notice.
The Testing Center provides a WEB page linked from the BYU-Idaho home page. These pages provide student, faculty, and visitor information. Among other things, a live view of the McKay Testing Center can be seen on the Student Information page. Visitors can get general information including directions to the Testing Center.
Students can look up their test scores and test deadlines. Faculty can view class scores, including item responses for their tests. These pages are on the Testing Center Server and contain scores and private test information available only on campus computers using passwords for connection.
To increase our seating capacity the Testing Center can now provide what we call “Print-On-Demand” Testing. That means that any test that a teacher provides to the Testing Center in a digital format for printing can be printed at request in any BYU-Idaho test center that is open.
