For how many days can a suspended test be resumed?

You can resume a test for up to 28 days after it was begun. However, we recommend not resuming a test after 14 days.

As an example, a test started on 3/1 would need to be resumed and completed before the end of the day on 3/28. The count begins on the day the test was first started and includes weekends. 

Since these are computer-adaptive tests, continued instruction for more than 2 weeks after the test was suspended will mean the student potentially will answer higher-level questions correctly when the test is resumed, which they may not have been able to answer previously. However, we understand that some circumstances require that a student be provided extra time to complete the test.

What happens if a new term begins?

A test that was started in one term can still be resumed within 28 days even if a new term begins. The student must be rostered for the new term. The test will appear on reports for the term in which it was started.
