CSV Export Question

Good morning!

I am exporting student CSV files to review which devices students use to access courses, as well as which tools students with devices. 

In the CSV export there is a Render Time field and Interaction_Seconds field. What do these two fields actually represent?  Seconds, minutes?

render_time
0.064441
0.205513
0.275688
0.641145
0.662477

 

interaction_seconds
 
 
 
 
 
2.149207
1.07412005
1.31259799
4.424528
4.960284

Thanks!

I believe that Render Time represents how long the user's browser took to load/show the page after Canvas received the request, while Interaction Seconds is the same as the "Time" field in a user's page view report. Here's a helpful definition from the document How do I view the page views for a user in an account? :

"Time is calculated by the number of seconds a user interacts with a Canvas page. Canvas records interactions at a minimum of 10 seconds or a maximum of 5 minutes to document when a user physically interacts with the page, such as clicking the mouse or using the keyboard. "
