# How long will the assessment take?

The assessment length can vary from student to student. It may take a couple of sessions or just one. Our goal is to find the right starting point with students which is often at the beginning of mathematics with number sense. Assessment is a common occurrence in our math sessions. Math specialists use it ongoing to measure the best starting points and gauge how topics are being retained.

The assessment usually takes 1 to 3 lesson times depending on your childâ€™s age. Once an appropriate starting point is found, we suspend the assessment and get to work.
