Testing Details and Extended Time Accommodations

During registration, you will have the opportunity to select the specific timing accommodations needed. We offer 50% extended and double time for individual sections or the entire test. Students have the opportunity to change their assigned testing accommodations at the start of the test. 

Those taking the test with extended timing accommodations may exit the test after each section and return later; extended time students will have 10 days to complete the test.

Once the test begins, students with standard timing will not be able to pause the test. The timer will run through sections and breaks, automatically starting the next section except in instances of loss of network.

Proceeds from this event will support:

School on Wheels is an educational nonprofit whose mission is to enhance opportunities for children experiencing homelessness from kindergarten through twelfth grade. School on Wheels’ program serves as a consistent support system for their students during a time of great stress and fear, and Compass is honored to make a donation to their cause!
