BYU Testing Center
The BYU Testing Center is located in the Heber J. Grant Building at Brigham Young University. It serves the purpose of administering tests to students. Tests are often administered in the Testing Center instead of during class time. By doing this, instructors allow students to take as much time as they need for the test, do not waste class time on testing, and allow students to take tests at their convenience.
The Testing Center consists of an administration area, where tests are handed out, and a huge room with approximately 649 desks. Despite the large amount of space available, long lines often form, especially in the evening, and on days when large classes have deadlines. When a student exits the testing center, they can see their score immediately on TV screens on the bottom floor (for multiple-choice tests).
The BYU Testing Center has developed software for administering tests that is used by many other universities across the country.
