How long will students need to complete their work?

EP's lists and Smart Lessons have an estimated completion time to help you with lesson planning. 

When navigating through the Content Library, click on a list or lesson to see the estimated completion time. In the sidebar that appears, there will be a stopwatch icon with a number next to it.

Additionally, while setting a task, you will be able to check the estimated completion time for the overall Task.

Calculating completion time

When a lesson is first created, the time is based on the number and type of slides within the lesson listed below. Once the first student has completed a new lesson, we use their completion time as an estimate. From there, we use the 80th percentile to estimate completion time.
