BYU Learning Suite allows instructors to link exams administered in the Testing Center to exams created in Learning Suite. If linked, students’ testing center scores will automatically upload to BYU Grades in Learning Suite.
Only machine scored portions of a test will be uploaded to Learning Suite. If a test has both machine and manually scored parts, the points possible listed in Learning Suite from the Testing Center refers only to the machine scored part. An additional test will need to be created in Learning Suite in order to enter scores for the manually scored part. Currently, Learning Suite does not support a multi-part exam, such as an exam in the Testing Center as described here. A future enhancement will allow for test parts, not just sections of one test as we currently have in Learning Suite.
Note: This is a retroactive feature. Meaning that all scores will still be uploaded to Learning Suite even if an exam is linked after students begin taking the exam.
Exams administered in the Testing Center can be linked to an existing Learning Suite exam.
Enter your Learning Suite course and click the Assignments tab found in the Course Home navigation menu.
Exams that have been scheduled at the Testing Center but are not currently linked to a Learning Suite exam will appear in the Scheduled Testing Center Exams  section at the bottom of the Assignments page. Click Add to Learning Suite  to link one exam or click Add all to Learning Suite  to link multiple exams at once.
Note: If changes were made via the Testing Center website click the Refresh List button  to refresh the list of Testing Center exams shown in Learning Suite.
The Link Exams From Testing Center dialog window appears.
Note: Only one exam will appear in this window if you selected to only add one exam to Learning Suite. All Testing Center exams that have not been linked will appear if you selected Add all to Learning Suite.
Uncheck any exams you do not want to link .
Click the Select assignment… drop down menu  and select an assignment that has already been created or select New Assignment to create a new assignment to link the exam to.
The assignment title entry box  automatically adjusts to reflect the assignment that was selected. However, the assignment title will remain the same if new assignment was selected. In either case, the assignment title can be changed by typing in the entry box.
Note: The assignment title is the title that will appear in Learning Suite.
The category drop down  will automatically adjust to reflect the category the assignment is currently under. However, if new assignment was selected or to change the category click the Select category… drop down and select an existing category or new category. The new category dialog window will appear if new category was selected. Create the new category following normal procedures.
The points possible  for each exam can be adjusted in Learning Suite until the Testing Center receives the test and all information from the instructor. (Click here to view information about scheduling tests at the Testing Center). At that point the points possible in Learning Suite will be overridden by the Testing Center information and it will not be possible to change via Learning Suite. It must be changed through the Testing Center.
Note: The open and close dates will be overridden by Testing Center information. If a Testing Center exam has been linked to a Learning Suite exam the open and close dates must be changed via the Testing Center. It may take a few hours for any changes made via the Testing Center website to reflect on Learning Suite.
Click Link Exams. A confirmation dialog window will appear. It will display the Testing Center exams and what Learning Suite exams they are going to be linked to. Click Link Exams if all information is accurate.
An alert with appear if the sections that are scheduled with the Testing Center exam do not match the sections that are scheduled with the Learning Suite exam. The exams could still be linked but keep in mind that students in sections that are not listed with the Testing Center schedule will be prohibited from taking the exam. Consider the example below. A student in section 009, who notices in Learning Suite that they are supposed to take this exam, would not be able to take it at the Testing Center because it is not scheduled at the Testing Center for their section. These settings must be changed via the Testing Center website.
View the linked exam on the Assignments page. A green link icon marks exams that have been linked to Testing Center exams. Students’ scores will automatically be pushed to BYU Grades now that the exams are linked.
Exams can be unlinked at anytime. Click here for more information about unlinking Learning Suite and Testing Center exams.
