Extended Question Time Limit Preference

Extended time limits are longer than standard time limits. Use them for students with special needs who need more time to read or answer the test questions. Reports will indicate if any students took a test using extended time limits, with a footnote explanation.

These are the standard and extended time limits:

Question Type Standard Time Limit Extended Time Limit
Practice questions 90 seconds (1.5 minutes) for each question 180 seconds (3 minutes) for each question
Test questions 180 seconds (3 minutes) for each question 360 seconds (6 minutes) for each question

Star Maths norms and reliability and validity are based on the standard time limits.

The Extended Question Time Limit Preference settings for a student are carried over with that student from one school year to the next.
