Testing Center



The Brigham Young University-Idaho Testing Service offices and main testing center are located in the basement of the McKay building. Office hours are from 8:00am to 5:00pm and the testing area is open from 8:00am to 10:00pm Monday through Friday. This testing area is also open on Saturday from 11:00am to 4:00pm. There is also a testing facility in the Taylor Building, room 130, that is open Monday through Friday from 3:00pm to 9:45pm. Another temporary test site will be advertised and opened as needed wherever we can find space during high use periods.


The Testing Center administers "write-on examinations" such as short answer or essay tests graded by the instructor, "objective tests" scored and analyzed by the Testing Server that immediately provides student grade results, or any combination of the two. Standard tests such as the ACT, GED, Praxis Series, TOEFL, CLEP, and distant learning tests scheduled by students locally or from other universities are also administered by the Testing Center.


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. These general information pages are available across the internet.


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.
