Taking your time, or just wasting it?Raynor, Nick D. (2013-10-21)This research examines the connection between the amount of time a student takes to complete a test and the score that they receive on the test. It is hypothesized that students who take longer to complete their test will actually score lower on the test than the student that finish their tests more quickly. Furthermore, it is thought that female students will have stronger correlations between score and time than will male students. The main discovery that was made is that there was significance in the data regarding strictly time and score. It was shown that students who use less time to take their tests generally scored better than those who took longer to complete the test. However, there was no statistical significance found when breaking down the data into specific categories based on gender, grade level, age, or class.
