Ideally, you should know before you start a test that it'll take longer than the typical 10-15 minutes to complete it. This is because we tell our customers to use screeners to let you know upfront what to expect during a test.
Use this article to learn how and why a customer might ask you to complete a longer test and what you should do if you start taking a test that requires more time than you expected.

How to identify a longer test
We allow some customers to create tests that take longer than 25 minutes to complete. For these longer tests, the customer should use a screener to make sure that you're comfortable spending more time than usual to give your feedback.
Customers may also offer a bonus payment for the extra time you spend on a longer test. The bonus amount can vary, but you should always have the opportunity to review the payment amount before you take the test (in the screener questions, requirements, or scenario).
When to expect a bonus payment
Our team manually processes bonus payments, so you likely won't see these payments immediately reflected on your dashboard. If you’re offered a bonus payment in a test, please reach out to our Support Team, and they'll process the payment as soon as they can.
