Exploring the Effect of Response Time on Students’ Performance: A Pilot Study
Teaching mediated by computers allows tracing some forms of students’ participation as all their actions/reactions are recorded including time spent on any pedagogical resource offered. For a quiz, response time provides an additional variable enriching the simple correctness of answers. The present study intends to describe and model different patterns of time-related participation, performances (answer correctness) and the relation between the two parameters which measures the time productivity using quantile regression.
