We have found that each test
usually takes students 20 to 25 minutes to complete. However, you may take as long as you
need to complete a test. The tests are not timed. Each test is designed using adaptive
techniques. This means that the computer automatically determines which questions are
presented to you based on your responses to prior questions. This technique
"zeroes-in" on just the right questions to ask you without being too easy or too
difficult. The greater your demonstrated skill level, the more challenging the questions
that will be presented to you.
