English term or phrase:time-on tasks
I did two time-on tasks with Pablo.
Context: The first time he was to be writing poetry in a book that was going to be a Christmas gift for his parents. He was on task 100% of the time while his peers were on task 96% of the time. Right before I actually got started, the teacher did have to redirect him by asking him what he was supposed to be doing but at that point he started immediately on this assignment. During the second time-on-task, Pablo was again on task 96% of the time while his peers were also on task 96% of the time. This time the class was working on a goodbye card for their student teacher.
Explanation: Time on task refers to the amount of time a student is actually engaged in learning. Engagement rate is the number of minutes the student is actively participating in teacher directed lessons and activities. Time on task is not observing a student merely working (could be working on personal activity like drawing), rather continous work on a teacher directed task without interruption
