What is Extended Time?

Many Special Education students have extended time as a accommodation.  This helps with students that have ADD, Autism or just have a hard time or frustrating time getting started on a certain subject.  There are pretty much two types of extended time.

  1. Percentage extended time- This is when a student will receive 15%, 20% or 50% more time on a test or quiz, when compared to a student that does not have an IEP.  
  2. Unlimited time-  Now I know what you are thinking, how would a student ever finish?  This is limited to the student must be putting some sort of effort into finishing the test.
As always let me know if you would like me to post anything.
