How much time should be spent on summative assessment?

How much time do you, as an academic, spend marking the summative components of your modules per student, against the number of European Credits (one ECU being equivalent to 25-30 student study hours aggregated across the total workload of the module) the module is worth? I am looking to develop an understanding of the mean and spread in current practice. In responding could you include the Subject area of the module; the type of assessment; the Country you teach in; the credit value of the module; total number of hours marking summative assessments for the module per student. All offers gratefully accepted.
