Math Time will accumulate in Imagine Math 3+ while a student is working within an item/exercise or a Benchmark Test. Usage data is stored when there is activity/movement in the browser when in the lesson, then gets sent when the item is completed. If none of the items are completed in that session there is no usage logged.
This means that any time spent on the homepage, redeeming points, or loading an item/exercise is not included within this measurement.
Math time is calculated by a timer that starts once the student has loaded an item/exercise. Once the student has answered the questions and clicked on the Next button; the amount of time on the timer will be saved, and the timer will be reset. This will continue to happen for each item/exercise that the student works on until they exit or have gone idle for 10 minutes. Once the student has completed an item/exercise, the time spent on the item/exercise will be added to the student's math time.
Please note that due to how Math Time is calculated if a student is working on an item/exercise and is unable to complete it before exiting, the time spent on this item/exercise will not be added to their Math Time measurement.
