Pre and Post tests are 48 questions long.  Take 2 days to complete the tests (24 questions each day.)

Estimated time to take each half of the Pre and Post tests:  46 mins. (at an approximate reading rate of 120 wpm.)

Progress monitoring required tests and optional tests are 10 questions each with only one reading passage each.

Schedule one class period (approximately 40 mins.) to complete each Progress monitoring required or optional test.

Special Education students who are mainstreamed into the one of the leveled RTL classrooms should take the PLATO tests the same as the other students in that class.

If special education students have not been mainstreamed into the one of the leveled RTL classrooms, they should take the PLATO tests the same as the other students in that grade.

The only special education students exempt from the PLATO test are those that have an alternative assessment marked in their IEPís. 

Since this is a reading test, teachers cannot read the test to students. The test is to be untimed, so students should be able to have as much time as they need.
