We have students taking WAY more time than the estimates provided by NWEA. Is there a way for the testing administrators to finalize tests - even if the students have not finished - after a set amount of time?
Thanks for your question. The test must be completed in order for a student to receive a RIT score. Consider setting a specific amount of time to test and then suspending the test if not finished to be resumed on another day. Check out more information on suspending and resuming tests. And here's more information about approximate test durations.
Please let us know if you have additional questions.
We have many students who take longer than the recommended amount of time as well. We can't afford to spend any more class time, so we have to resort to pulling students from elective classes to get a score. At that point, we can't be sure if it is a good representation of their capability.
Hi Annette, tests older than 28 days from the start date cannot be resumed, however, our official recommendation is to not resume a test after 14 days due to the increased instructional times and the likelihood that a student will see higher value RIT items that may inflate their scores compared to their peers.
