Module Time Estimates
Note: The length of each of these modules could easily increase by 10-15 minutes for shorter modules or more than 20-25 minutes for longer modules, depending on how talkative the interviewee is.
Note: These time estimates were taken from CARS v1.05. Time estimates for the latest version of CARS, CARS-5, are not currently available. We will provide time estimates for CARS-5 modules soon. In the meantime, it is safe to assume that these estimates are roughly accurate for CARS-5.
