Testimonial:

Hello from the Boise State Testing Center!

I just wanted to take a moment to thank you all for being one of the fastest-responding and friendliest vendor testing-support groups I have worked with in my last five years in this role.

I have received email responses from Carlyn, David, Ian, Kristi, Alan and Ashley in the last few months (I hope I haven’t missed anyone) on various issues and mistakenly assumed they were all coming from the same well-trained, responsive, friendly staff person.

So when I looked today to see whom to thank after another quick and friendly response from Carlyn—and noticed all these other names—it stood out that systematically you're all doing something really right, and I just wanted to point out that it is very appreciated!

Thank you again!

Requirements

Testing Area

  • The testing area must be located so Test Takers are not disturbed by foot traffic, conversations, or outside noises.
  • Noise canceling headphones or disposable earplugs must be provided to Test Takers or located at each Kryterion workstation prior to the start of the exam.
  • The testing area must be free from any other activity during a testing session.
  • Kryterion does not allow Test Takers to bring tobacco products, food, drinks, or chewing gum into the testing area.

Proper Control of Room Temperature and Ventilation

  • The testing area must be comfortable and well ventilated, with a room temperature range between 70 and 75 degrees Fahrenheit or 20 and 25 degrees Celsius.
  • Ventilation should supply continuous air circulation.

Ample Lighting

  • There must be enough lighting in the testing area so that the Test Taker can easily read test items, materials, and the computer screen without difficulty.

Sufficient Physical Space

  • The testing area must be large enough to place the testing stations, computer tables, and chairs adequately, such that the Test Taker can easily move about.
  • Each testing workstation must be separated with a partition or spaced apart by 5 feet or 1.5 meters to prevent a candidate from viewing another computer screen. If a partition or an adequate amount of space between work-stations is not available, a Kryterion Test Taker cannot be seated next to another Kryterion Test Taker.

Workspace

  • Workstations/tabletops must be large enough to allow for the monitor, keyboard (if not placed on a slide tray under the desk), mouse and test aids used by a Test Taker.
  • Minimum height should be 30 in (76.2 cm) and minimum width should be 42 in (107 cm). Depth can vary based on whether a slide tray is used under the desk for a keyboard, and the type of monitor being used.
