The newest member of Purdue Testing Services, Alyssa moved here from Boise, ID to join the team as the Assistant Director of Vendor Exams and brings a wide range of skills with vendor exams processes along with RegisterBlast knowledge.

Alyssa has been active in the realm of Testing since 2014 at Boise State University. She has her bachelor's degree in Biology with an emphasis in Zoology. She also has earned certificates in Elementary and Intermediate Korean language.

She is also passionate about music and the culture of the music industry from the perspective of the producers and the consumers. She was highly active in the local music scene back in Boise, ID with a position as an operations manager for a cover party/wedding band.

In her spare time, she likes to hike, read, listen to, and create music, attend concerts, and travel with her loved ones.

Maddie stepped into the role of Accommodated Testing Coordinator in December 2022.

In 2019, Maddie earned her bachelor’s degree in music from the University of Indianapolis. Her primary instrument is alto saxophone. After completing her degree, Maddie served as a local high school band director for grades 6-12.

She is passionate about mental health and creating the least restrictive environment for learning. Maddie helps students and faculty break down barriers and stigma to promote Universal Design.

When not on campus, Maddie enjoys spending time with friends and family, drinking coffee, being in nature, and attending Broadway musicals.

As the Senior Test Administrator for vendor testing at Purdue, Bahiyyih helps testers navigate the challenges of high-stakes testing.

She has a master's degree from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign in teaching English to speakers of other languages, specializing in pronunciation and testing of academic English. She has lived and taught ESL in Tokyo, Japan, and more recently Chengdu, China—famous for its pandas and mouth-numbing hot peppers.

Bahiyyih is attempting to learn (but not yet mastering) Spanish, Japanese and Chinese. She has come to love the process of second language discovery along with her students.

You may see Bahiyyih commuting to campus or playing Pikmin Bloom on her trusty blue bike.
