Time allotment


The study determines the effect of different time allotments on students’ academic score on a a.) timed assessment (15 minutes) and b.) an untimed assessment as well as the factors that affect their performance on an online exam. To measure the academic performance of 100 grade 12 students, the researchers opted to use two simulation quizzes that will serve as pre-test and post-test and a Likert scale questionnaire to assess the factors that affect their performance on an online examination. It was revealed that students achieve higher scores on untimed assessments, and lower scores on time-restricted assessments, indicating that teachers should employ longer time allotments on assessments to achieve better outcomes. Further study of the factors affecting academic performance and different examination arrangements (i.e. proctored, face-to-face) is recommended.
