Usage Guidance

  • An example of how this metric might be calculated: A school begins the day at 8:00 am and ends at 2:00pm. Each day, approximately one hour is spent on lunch, breaks, or other non-classroom learning time. Therefore, each day a student received 5 hours of learning. Students receive schooling 5 days a week. The reporting organization would report 5 * 5 = 25 hours.
