Extended Question Time Limit Preference

Use extended question time limits 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:

Years Standard Time Limit Extended Time Limit
1–2 60 seconds for questions 1–16
120 seconds for questions 17–34
180 seconds for questions 1–16
270 seconds for questions 17–34
3 60 seconds for questions 1–10
120 seconds for questions 11–34
180 seconds for questions 1–10
270 seconds for questions 11–34
4–13 45 seconds for questions 1–10
90 seconds for questions 11–34
135 seconds for questions 1–10
270 seconds for questions 11–34

Star Reading 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.
