Time Limits for TCAP Achievement Test

The charts linked below show time limits for the TCAP achievement test.

Testing times do not include time needed for coding student demographics or distributing and collecting tests. For each content area, add 5 to 10 minutes for administering the sample test questions and reading introductions and directions.

The time limits are generous and allow most students time to finish. Breaks are recommended between content areas and parts 1 and 2 in a subtest.

Extended time for Achievement and MAAS assessments are determined by the IEP team or 504 committee.
