Time Limits

Although scores are not based on how quickly students answer questions, there is a time limit for answering each test question.

  • Each practice question has a 90-second time limit and each of the test questions has a 3-minute time limit. These time limits can be extended using the Extended Question Time Limit Preference.
  • Fifteen seconds before the time limit is up for a question, the program flashes a picture of a clock on the screen. When this happens, the student should make his or her best guess as soon as possible.
  • If the student does not enter an answer before time runs out, the question will disappear and the program will notify the student that time has run out. Then, the next question will appear.
