Abstract: Suppose that $ X = \operatorname{Spec}R$ is an $ F$-finite normal variety in characteristic $ p > 0$. In this paper we show that the big test ideal $ \tau_b(R) = \widetilde{\tau(R)}$ is equal to $ \sum_{\Delta} \tau(R; \Delta)$, where the sum is over $ \Delta$ such that $ K_X + \Delta$ is $ \mathbb{Q}$-Cartier. This affirmatively answers a question asked by various people, including Blickle, Lazarsfeld, K. Lee and K. Smith. Furthermore, we have a version of this result in the case that $ R$ is not even necessarily normal.
