3 The four-hour time period will start when the test administrator has read directions and tells students to begin working on their tests. ■ Start time for the test session must be recorded on the seating chart. ■ Students must record all responses on their answer documents or in TestNav before the end of the four-hour time period. ■ Once the four-hour time period has ended, test administrators will instruct any students still testing to either put their pencils down and close their test booklets or stop their online tests. ■ Stop time must be recorded on the seating chart. Distribution of materials and the test administrator “SAY” directions are not included in the four-hour time limit. Communicate (orally or in writing) the amount of time left to test in one-hour intervals and, if desired, in shorter intervals during the last hour.

The test administrator must document the time the student stops and restarts the test and must make the student aware of his or her adjusted testing time.

5 Students may stop testing to take a supervised lunch. ■ The testing time must be stopped for a lunch break and will restart when students resume taking the test. ■ Students must place their answer documents inside their test booklets so that all secure materials can be collected and placed in locked storage. ■ Students must be monitored by trained testing personnel and are not allowed to discuss any test content during lunch. Campuses may offer multiple test sessions per day as long as the four-hour time limit is maintained for each session. ■ Sessions can start before the regularly scheduled school day and can extend beyond the regularly scheduled school day. 3-5 p p. 13 EOC p. 12
