Elapsed Time

Jan 29, 2013

Does anyone know if total "time" spent viewing a course is sent (or can be sent) to the LMS.

The SCORM standard captures two different time measures automatically. Trouble is most LMS don't make this convenient to report. I usually run custom queries of database records to pull stuff like this but YMMV.

  • cmi.session_time (timeinterval (second,10,2), WO) //Amount of time that the learner has spent in the current learner session for this SCO

  • cmi.total_time (timeinterval (second,10,2), RO) //Sum of all of the learner’s session times accumulated in the current learner attempt

These are SCORM 2004. SCORM 1.2 would be cmi.core.total_time and cmi.core.session_time.
