Taking the test:
“The online test is a 30-clue, 30-category test and will take approximately ten minutes to complete. Clues will appear one at a time and will run sequentially from one to thirty. Kids cannot pause, stop, or go back on the test. The test will not be repeated, and there will be no opportunity to review at the end of the test, nor to change any responses.”
“Kids will have 20 seconds to respond to each clue – or to change their responses – before the test automatically captures whatever they have typed into the test window and advances to the next clue. Kids will have the option to submit their responses before the clock times out for a particular clue if they are ready to proceed, or they can wait for the full 20 seconds for your response to be automatically submitted. The speed at which your kid completes the test will not affect your score.
Note: If you wait for the full 20 seconds to expire, you will hear a “Time’s Up” sound effect. This does NOT mean that you have responded incorrectly. It’s simply a signal that the next clue is coming.”
