Computerized Testing Policies


To reserve a time to take a test, students will need to log onto http://elc.byu.edu/testSignup with their BYU ID and password, select their class, and then reserve a time.

Scheduled Computerized Tests

Listening/Speaking tests are scheduled for you. You must take the test for your L/S class at the appropriate time.

Writing tests are not scheduled. You can choose when you take these tests. You can schedule these tests from 8:00 to 2:00. Availability for these hours depends on the scheduled test so you should sign up early for the time you would like to take your writing test.

Taking the Test

  • Tests are no longer than 1 hour.
  • Students should arrive early and line up outside the east door. Please arrive no later than 10 minutes after your reserved time.
  • Late Exams

    Students should make Friday Tests a priority. Any non-emergency late test should be cleared by the teacher and the lab staff before the original test date.

    Students needing to take a late test should download and print the late test form, have their teacher help them fill out the form, pay the 5 dollar late fee and bring the completed form to the lab. The late test must be administered the Tuesday after a Friday Test immediately after class, unless approved by Mr. Cox.
