Meet Our Team

For over 30 years, Testing & Evaluation has been providing BJU Press customers with standardized tests, test support, and other assessments. Helping parents choose the best tests for their children, scoring tests for parents, and explaining test results are just a small part of what we do. And while our team has changed throughout the years, our commitment to great customer service hasn't changed. Everyone on our staff has been trained to help you have the best testing experience possible. It is very important for you to have an accurate picture of your children's education, and that is what we provide you with.
