Calculate the time spent on pages, questions and scenes (LMS report)

Apr 30, 2020

Hello, I would like to know if it is possible to calculate certain durations per user and also for the project (and see the data in a LMS). My client would like to have this data for a research project.

- the time taken to complete the course
- the time spent by sections (see image). Storyline scenes
- time spent per page
- the time spent on the question pages. This is a text entry page (Survey: Essay) and the client would like to know how long it took the user to enter these notes.

If possible

If the user returns to a page already viewed, does Storyline calculate the total time of the 2 visits or it only keeps the time of the second visit.

Because I did a test Cloud Scorm using Scorm 2004 and I can see (in the report) the Total minutes and the Response Time ( interactions report) for the question page. But I don't understand because the Total minutes is 59 seconds and for the 2 questions, 54 seconds each. 

Maybe i could use Tincan instead of Scorm, would i have this data?

Thanks for your help

Hi Mat,

Thank you for sharing your design needs with us! 

While Storyline does send latency data to the LMS, how that data is tracked/reported is typically handled on the LMS side. You can find more details about what data Storyline sends to an LMS here: 

I am hoping that others in the community will be able to offer some guidance on how they accomplished this!
