Can I change the time for a test?

You cannot change the time limit of a test from our test library. For custom questions, you can set the time limit yourself.

Tests from the test library

For almost all test types, candidates have up to 10 minutes to complete a test. Coding tests will sometimes have a longer time limit since the code work may take longer. The time limit for coding tests is either 10 or 30 minutes.

Why is this?

1) We always aim for the best possible candidate experience. We've found that 10 minutes is generally an ideal time period for recruitment tests. This way, your candidates won't feel overwhelmed or mentally drained by a large time investment per test.

2) To ensure the highest quality and validity of our tests, we need the test results to be objectively comparable. This would not be possible if the time limits of tests varied between the assessments of different users.

Custom questions

For custom questions, you can set the time limit yourself. You’ll automatically be asked to do this when you create a new custom question. For each question type, we provide several time limits to choose from.
