Users: 1 - Average Rating: 5.00

This indicator will measure the amount of time spent by the student on the answers of tests. This quantity can be used as an indication of the student’s level of learning on a topic: if the student takes a lot of time to answer a particular question, this indicates that he/she probably has not understood and assimilated the concept and the algorithm can maybe suggest him/her follow-up materials on the topic available in the platform’s repository.

Importance of the indicator for the students’ learning methodology:
The time spent by the student on an answer of the test can allow to identify the topics which the student has less understood and assimilated and we can use this information to plan a specific learning path for the student.
