How long should my tests be?
Standard unmoderated tests on a desktop computer or mobile device that pay $10 USD should take around 15-20 minutes to complete. Short unmoderated tests on a desktop computer or mobile device that pay $4 USD should take around 5-7 minutes to complete.
What if my test is shorter than that?
Some tests will be shorter. Just answer each question thoughtfully, and make sure you're not skipping tasks. If you rush through a test to complete it quickly, a customer may give you a low rating, and your payment may be cancelled.
What if my test is longer than that?
If a test is expected to take longer than 25 minutes to complete, the customer should provide notice before the test begins. Learn more about how to handle longer tests here. Tests that don't mention a bonus are not typically eligible for additional compensation.
Since we're unable to review every single test that our customers post, you may see a test that has minimal or too many tasks to be completed within this time frame. If the test is very brief and you still have time after thoroughly addressing the tasks, you could explore the site further, recap any problems found or write a very thorough summary. If you think a test has too many tasks and will take significantly more than 20 minutes to complete, please let us know so we can follow up with the customer.
