This study is a research in progress taking an exploratory look at the student exam scores dependent on the amount of time that a student takes to finish the exam. Four different multiple choice exams were used for data analysis. Students were undergraduate students in an Introductory Computer Information Systems Course from a university in the Southeastern US. Linear regression analysis was used to see how much exam scores were explained by the time that the student took to finish the exam. The data indicates that a trend where the more time one takes to finish the exam, the worse the score gets.
