cDAT vs aDAT Reading Comprehension Time Limits


Recommended Posts

Hey,

 

Does anyone know why the time limit of the RC section on the Canadian DAT is 50 minutes whereas on the American DAT it is 60 min? Both have 50 questions so why does the aDAT allow 10 extra minutes? Are the passages longer or something?

 

Thanks!

Just to clarify, I believe it's mOre time because it takes longer to look things up (ie. can't mark passages up or make annotations while you read). As well, you don't have access to all the questions at once like you do using a scantron (youd have to scroll through hitting the next/back button to find a question you missed or to skip ahead). I think the majority of us read faster on a computer than in print.
