Form 4 and 5 Estimated Testing Times

Form 4 and 5 contains operational items and Reading domain field test items. The estimated minutes in Table 1 through Table 7 are provided as a basis for planning.

For each domain of the test, allow an additional five to ten minutes to log on to the test examiner device, the student testing device, and to read directions. Actual testing times may be shorter if the student exits the test at a stopping marker. Actual testing times may be longer than estimated testing times since the Summative ELPAC is an untimed test.

Navigate back to the Summative ELPAC Estimated Testing Time web page to view additional Form Testing Times.
