How does the login time limit work?

To ensure that students maintain a healthy schedule throughout the World Series events, we impose an eight hour login limit, after which you won't be able to log in until the timer resets.

How much time do students get a day? 

Students get a total of 8 hours online, which refreshes every 24 hours at the same time the competition began. For example, the 8 hour limit for a competition that starts at 4pm on Monday will refresh at 4pm on Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, and so on until the competition ends.

What time counts?

Any time spent doing work (i.e. reading and answering questions) will count towards your 8 hour total. Time spent reviewing peers' answers in Peer Review, browsing lists, completing assessments or sitting on the dashboard doesn't count against your time limit.

As a rule of thumb, using any section of the website that has a timer (provided it hasn't been hidden by you or your teacher), will count toward your total. 


Q: What if I'm working on a subject that's not included in the competition I'm currently competing in—will that still count toward my 8 hours?
A: Yes.

Q: What if I log in and leave my computer overnight?
A: Any idle time not spent doing work will not count toward your 8 hours unless you leave the page open in a lesson where the timer is counting.
