Before I go and get a test light, I noticed that the dash board gauges didn't respond when I turned the key. Could this mean that the ignitiion switch is bad?

No, it could mean you just didn't turn the key far enough to activate them. Please add more information, age of auto, type of auto, turned the key to do what (start car "Key On-Engine On, Starter Engage", listen to radio in the accessory position "Key On Engine Off", or turned key to run but not start "Key On-Engine On" ) ?
