Test Scoring Services are offered at the Technical Assistance Center (TAC), x7666, located on the first floor of Boyer Hall. Services are rendered during Fall and Spring Semesters between 8 a.m. and 9 p.m. Monday through Thursday and 8 a.m. - 5 p.m. on Friday; Winter and Summer Sessions between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. Monday through Friday.

The professor must deliver the test materials to the Help Desk. Test materials must be signed-in by the professor, and signed-out at pick-up.

Tests are accepted, and results are released to professors only. Student representatives must have written authorization from the professor before service is granted. (Exception: Student teachers.)

Barring mechanical failure, the test scoring process will be completed within one hour of drop-off. In most cases, tests are scored immediately, and the results are ready within 10 minutes. Faculty are welcome to wait in the comfort of the first floor waiting area.
