Editing the Time Targets Preference
Who can do this with standard capabilities?
School Network/Program Administrators, School Administrators, Teachers
Note: School network staff and school staff can view the setting, but they cannot change it.
The Time Targets preference allows you to define five decreasing time targets that your students can achieve on tests. These targets are separate from the mastery time that you set for the levels. You can see the results of the tests your students take at the various time targets by printing the Student Progress Report.
The default is Enable Time Targets. Target 1, two minutes, zero seconds. Subsequent targets decrease 15 seconds per target.
